Gross Halloween Food

I'm pretty sure my obsession with Halloween has driven off most of my regular audience, so I'm going to go all the way here and show you the gross Halloween snack I made last night. If you're squeamish, better change channels right now and come back after November 1st when everything will be back to normal.


I warned you....

First you make Rice Krispie treat stuff and shape it into rough cylinders in your hands. Like giant slugs. Oh, butter your hands first so they don't stick and lay them on wax paper to cool.

Then while those are cooling, cut the bottom yellow part off of candy corn. Make sure to get rid of all the orange color, then cut those in half again.

Then melt a bunch of chocolate chips slowly in the microwave and...


coat the Rice Krispie treats with the chocolate. While the chocolate is still soft, push a few pieces of candy corn into it.

Corn Poopies! Aren't they cute?
And speaking of disgusting stuff, I made the "guts" for my Fire Roasted Flesh Worms this morning. I used Julia Child's cranberry chutney recipe and it looks perfect. The original recipe called for chili (!?) for the guts, but this is a Gourmand Halloween party, and a sweet chutney will go nicely with the roasted pork. Much better than chili, don't you think?

You are soooooo bad!!! Reminds me of the baby showers I have been to where the potty chair is presented with lemon jellow and a Baby Ruth candy bar in it!

Well we have to have one day a year when "gross" is permissible--even encouraged! C

I can't believe you put this on your tasteful blog!
But since you did, I must say I recognized it right off through personal experience. When my daughter was little, she loved corn on the cob, so I put it in her lunchbox every day when she went to preschool. One day the teacher told me they didn't know who had used the little potty until they saw it was "corn poo," so they knew who had done it!
It's amazing how corn looks the same coming out as it did going in.
