Autistic Teen’s Perfect Recipe For Post-Election Blues & Reds From His New Charity Cookbook

Californian autistic teen chef and YouTube cooking show host, Chase Bailey, whose first ever cookbook launches today, has come up with the perfect, post-election recipe that everyone will love, no matter what their political leanings. Festive Pretzel Salad, a celebration of red, white and blue, is also perfect as a dish for Thanksgiving too. Chase began life with serious food aversions, typical of people diagnosed with autism. However, his love of cooking shows helped turn his life around and food is now his biggest passion – be it eating it, cooking it or writing about it....


His cooking show has seen world famous chefs such as Roy Choi and Mario Batali cook alongside him.
Realizing how lucky he has been to have the opportunity to turn his life around and be able to follow his dreams, Chase decided to set up a charity to help other people with autism. His cookbook was created to raise money for his new venture –
The cookbook is perfect for anyone as it shows you how to make tasty, wholesome food very quickly and easily. Featuring over 75 recipes that 15-year-old Chase has developed, along with mouthwatering photography, fun facts and anecdotes, The Official Chase ‘N Yur Face Cookbook (Chase ‘N Yur Face Media LLC, $24.95) goes on sale November 10, 2016 and includes an endorsement from Chef Mario Batali.
Festive Pretzel Salad
1-1/2 cups crushed pretzels
1 cup honey almond granola
3/4 cup melted butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 (8oz) package cream cheese
1 (8oz) container whipped topping
½ cup sugar
1 banana
1 (6oz) package raspberry gelatin
½ cup fresh blue berries
½ cup black berries cut in ½
1 cup fresh strawberries sliced
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Stir together crushed pretzels, granola, melted butter, and 2 tablespoons brown sugar.
Spread pretzel mixture evenly into bottom of 9x13 pan.
Bake 8-10 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool.
Follow instructions on raspberry gelatin package, adding the fresh fruit to the liquid gelatin and then pouring the raspberry liquid into a mixing bowl. 
Put liquid gelatin in the refrigerator for appx 3 hours or until the liquid has become slightly gelled.  (Should look the consistency of scrambled eggs.)
In a mixing bowl, use mixer to blend cream cheese, whipped cream, sugar, and banana until smooth.
Spread the cream cheese and whip mixture evenly on top of the crushed pretzel and granola mixture, making sure to seal all corners of the pan. 
Pour gelatin on top of cream cheese and whip layer. 
Refrigerate until set approximately 2 hours.
