Graham Wardle's Recipe to Riches Audition: The Sticky Ball

It's hot, it's sweet, it's crunchy, and it could earn Graham Wardle $250,000 -- if CBC Live picked the winner of Recipe to Riches.

Because when we met Wardle at the CBC Fall Launch this spring, the conversation turned to something beyond Heartland: that upcoming CBC reality series, Recipe to Riches.

What would he make if he was trying out for the show?

First, Wardle cracked up for about 30 seconds.

Then, he laughed some more.

Eventually, he answered.

"It's the only thing I've ever created," Wardle said -- revealing the secrets of an original dessert treat, one born out of pure inspiration and his inner fat-kid's impatience for sweets.

Anyone with a microwave, two marshmallows and a certain lack of self-respect can make it at home!

Still, we prefer to leave things to the expert.

Since every Recipe to Riches hopeful has to send in a video audition, we asked Wardle if he'd give it a try.

Here's what the aspiring director (and Recipe to Riches contestant?) sent us.
