the recipe is simple but requires some specifics. stack a cracker, cheese, hot sauce & pickle and balance the olive on top. don't pretend to be lady-like. just stuff the whole thing in your mouth. trying to bite this thing in half is futile. it will win.
ps: we couldn't find vlasic zesty bread and butter pickles so we had to substitute regular bread & butter pickles. not quite the same but we made do.

i think one of the most important elements of this recipe is one you can't buy in a store. it is essential that you share this snack with a friend. someone you can laugh with when the olive rolls off the top of the mountain and bounces across the floor. one who will scour the terribly-laid-out grocery store in search of the perfect cracker. one who appreciates the finer things in life - like a $8 magnum of chardonnay to share. i think that is what makes these snacks so delicious.
and of course the pickle. the pickle is imperative.
