Back in 2005 at Occidental Grand Flamenco, I ate these delicious chocolate "things". We didn't know what they were called so Mike and I decided to call them "poo-tasties" (don't ask me why). These "poo-tasties" brought back memories of my childhood. I can't recall who made them for me or how they are made or even what they are properly called.
Then fast forward to 2009 at NH Real Arena, I found my "poo-tasties" at the lunch buffet on our last day. It made me trip!!! When I saw them, I immediately put three on one plate, as I used another plate to get my lunch. I got back to the table and explained to Mike that I got three because they might all be eaten by the time I go up for seconds. Luckily, I was smart because when Mike went to get his food, he informed me that they were all gone.
Here are the three poo-tasties from the resort
(or my version of chocolate haystacks)
I have no idea what is in the poo-tasties that they make in the DR but chocolate haystacks consist of maybe chow mein noodles or cornflakes or oats or coconut. I made mine with 4 squares of semi-sweet chocolate, Special K and some shredded coconut. I ate a couple after they cooled down in the fridge and I have to say - they are quite tasty!
