I did not name this dessert. I am quite sure I know how it came to be called Fat Ladies though. One of these ooey, caramelly, nutty, chocolate chippy squares is never enough. They are incredible. I haven’t met a person, yet, who doesn’t love them.
I love the name Fat Ladies. You might not know this, but I am one of the most politically incorrect people you will meet. In a nice way.
You know, sensitivity is one thing. But, the whole PC movement has become intrusive and ridiculous. If I want to call something ‘retarded’, dammit, let me.
That said, you can call these yummy treats ‘Horizontally Challenged Non-Gender Specific Thingies’.
I’m sticking by Fat Ladies. If you are offended by the name of the dessert, definitely don’t listen to the songs. Oooh. I love me some political incorrectness.
1 roll chocolate chip cookie dough
1/2 cup half and half
35 caramels (12 oz) (I LOVE the caramel block that I picked up at King Arthur Flour. I lose patience unwrapping all of those little individually wrapped caramels.)
2 cups chocolate chips (I like a mix of semisweet and bittersweet)
1 cup pecans, chopped
1. Preheat oven to 350℉.
4. Sprinkle chocolate chips over cookie layer. Bake 5 minutes longer or until chocolate is melted.
Cut into small bars to serve.
Too Fat Polka ALWAYS cracks me up. I’ve had some dicey moments when my children were younger and they’d be belting this song out in public….where the general public was, in general, too fat.
“Does she fit in your coupe?
By herself she’s a group
Could she possibly
Sit upon your knee?
No, no, no”
Bobby Vinton-Too Fat Polka
This song charted at #12 US, #2 UK in 1977. Can you imagine hearing it play on popular radio today??? In freakin’ Vermont??
Joe Tex-Ain’t Gonna Bump No More (With No Big Fat Woman)
One of my favorite songs. Yep, it’s politically incorrect.
