Dessert Recipe: Crack sticks (drug free)

A while ago, my awesome sister Christina (who really needs a blog about her daily life, but you can find her food blog right here), told me she had made crack sticks for dessert. I thought "what?" but didn't pursue it, as life gets busy around here. Yesterday, they came up in conversation and I actually asked about them. She gave me the recipe (it came from Here, so you'll have to look it up to make sure my measurements were right), and I ended up making it yesterday.

If I'm not mistaken (and I totally could be), the recipe calls for:
One loaf of white bread, crusts removed (I didn't remove crusts, I'm a rebel)
one brick (8 oz) of cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 to 1 and a half teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup butter, melted.'s what you do...
Throw together your cream cheese and powdered sugar. Have your kid mix it together.

When you realize that maybe your cream cheese wasn't softened enough, whip out your grandmother's ancient mixer and use that.

Much better!!!! Now, mix your cinnamon and sugar together. You may be asking yourself, are these steps out of order? Probably. I told you before, I'm a rebel. :)

Then, have your kid use a rolling pin to flatten your slice of bread.

After all that is done, you take a slice of bread, spread the cream cheese and sugar mixture on it, roll it up and....

... dip it into the melted butter and the cinnamon sugar. There are no pictures of this, as my hands were sticky from all the cinnamon sugar. When your bread is all rolled and dipped, it should look like this.

If it doesn't, don't worry, I'm sure it'll taste fine.

Put a whole bunch of them on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 20 minutes. I would have had pictures of them after they baked...if my husband and child hadn't eaten every.last.bite. Seriously, they are that good!!!!! Thanks to my awesome sister for a dessert I wouldn't have thought to make. And as promised, these Crack Sticks are 100% drug free.


  1. hehehe lol perhaps ONE DAY I will get around to writing a blog about the mundane everyday... but for now my food blog will have to do!!! & I am SOOOO glad you guys liked em as much as we did (but WE cut the crusts off so ours were prettier :P) anywho! Love u!

  2. Most of the time I only care that food tastes good. I don't care if it's pretty or not. It gets devoured so fast around here by husband and kid, that I would probably be a little sad if it was pretty.
