A Recipe for Happiness

It feels a bit pretentious to call this combination of three uncooked ingredients a recipe, but if there can be entire cookbooks devoted to salads (and there are!), then this simple concoction can bear up under the weight of being called a recipe.

• Trader Joe's Old Fashioned Cinnamon Grahams. I grew up with Nabisco's cinnamon grahams as the rarest and most satisfying of pleasures, but after trying Trader Joe's there's no going back. Crispier texture and a more pronounced cinnamon flavor.

• Peanut butter. Your call on this one, though I'm a smooth and creamy Jif man myself. Spread some pb on a graham cracker.

• Dark chocolate. Again, I'm a fan of the Trader Joe's bars from Belgium on sale in the check-out aisles. Three delicious bars for under $2: you can't go too far wrong. Put one little rectangle of chocolate on each half of the cracker.

Eat. Repeat. You won't be sorry. Simple and delicious. I've had them for breakfast, snacktime, and dessert, and I can't see laying off them anytime soon.

You are the master of the two-ingredient meal. Mashed-up corn chips doused in salsa is another Crow standby.

Oh wait, there's 3 ingredients in this new one.

You're getting posh.
