An artist's approximation of Graham Wardle's Recipe to Riches treat, the "Sticky Ball." Find it in your grocer's snack aisle? -- CBC Live
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.
