Ever sliced open a watermelon and spotted those large, unusual cracks within? Many of us might overlook them and dig right in. But it’s time we rethink that approach, as it might be harmful to our health.
Those cracks might indicate the presence of a growth-boosting chemical called Forchlorfenuron. This substance speeds up fruit growth when sprayed onto them. While it might sound like a harmless way to get bigger fruits faster, there’s a dark side. If ingested, Forchlorfenuron can lead to severe health issues like cancer and neurological complications. These conditions are challenging to treat.
Next time, if you come across a watermelon with such peculiar cracks, it’s better to play it safe. Prioritize your health and avoid eating it.
Ritz Cracker Salted Caramel Icebox Cake
– 2 (8-oz) packages cream cheese, softened
– 1 cup heavy cream
– 1 cup granulated sugar
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1 cup salted caramel sauce (store-bought or homemade)
– 1.5 sleeves of Ritz crackers (around 48 crackers)
In a large mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, heavy cream, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract. Use an electric mixer to beat the ingredients together until smooth and well combined.
Place 1/3 of the Ritz crackers on bottom of greased 8×8 baking dish. Top with 1/3 cream cheese mixture. Top with 1/3 caramel sauce on top (just drizzle over). Repeat this for 2 more layers, until all ingredients are used.
Cover the baking dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate the cake for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight. This will allow the Ritz crackers to soften and the flavors to meld together.
Prior to serving, you can garnish the cake with additional salted caramel sauce, whipped cream, or crushed Ritz crackers, if desired.
Slice and serve the Salted Caramel Icebox Cake chilled. Enjoy!
