Doggie Drop Cookies

1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. peanut butter
2 T. butter or margarine
36 large marshmallows

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper and set aside. Pour the chips, peanut butter and butter into large microwave safe bowl. Cover lightly with plastic wrap. Microwave on high for about one and half minutes. Stir well with a rubber scraper until melted. Allow the chocolate mixture to cool slightly, about two to three minutes. Fold in the marshmallows and stir with the rubber scraper to coat completely with the chocolate mixture. When the chocolate mixture has cooled enough for you to handle (with you clean dry hands), remove the marshmallows from the chocolate mixture and arrange them in sets of three onto your baking sheet. Keeping marshmallows close together, form random doggie poop shapes. Drizzle the remaining chocolate mixture evenly over each doggie dropping. Chill for about an hour (or until firm) in the fridge.

Froot Poops

1 and 1/2 pkg (12 oz) chocolate chips
1- 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
Dash salt
2 tsp. vanilla
1 and 1/2 cups chopped, dried mixed fruit

1. Line the bottom of a 9 inch square pan with waxed paper.
2. Pour chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, and salt into large glass bowl and melt in microwave. Stir constantly to determine when melted.
3. Pour in vanilla and dried fruit. Stir into chocolate mixture.
4. Pour chocolate mixture into lined pan and spread it evenly with your rubber scraper. Place pan in the refrigerator and chill for at least two hours.
5. When thoroughly chilled, invert chocolate mixture onto cutting board. Cut into 1 inch squares.
6. Create loads of uniquely shaped diarrhea dumps by rolling each square between the palms or your clean, dry hands. Make some flat, round disks, some short, thick poops, and some long skinny ones!

Really Gross: Make sure you present your diarrhea delight on toilet paper wads!

Creepy Witch’s Fingers

Yield: 5 dozen

1 c Butter, softened
1 c Icing sugar
1 Egg
1 tsp Almond extract
1 tsp Vanilla
2 2/3 c Flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Salt
3/4 c Almonds, whole blanched
1 Tube red decorator gel

In bowl, beat together butter, sugar, egg, almond extract and vanilla. Beat in flour, baking soda, and salt. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes. Working with one quarter of the dough at a time and keeping remainder refrigerated, roll heaping teaspoonful of dough into finger shape for each cookie.

Press almond firmly into 1 end for nail. Squeeze in center to create knuckle shape. (Accompanying picture showed long rolled shape with bulge at center for knuckle; you puff it out rather than squeeze it in.) Using paring knife, make slashes in several places to form knuckle.

Place on lightly greased baking sheets; bake in 325F (160C) oven for 20-25 minutes or until pale golden. Let cool for 3 minutes. Lift up almond; squeeze red decorator gel onto nail bed and press almond back in place, so gel oozes out from underneath. You can also make slashes in the finger and fill them with “blood.” Remove from baking sheets and let cool on racks. Repeat with remaining dough.

Dirt Dessert

Yield: 10 servings

1 Flower pot (new)
1 Garden trowel (new)
3 Gummy worms
1 Plastic flowers, bunch
16 oz Oreo cookies
1/2 c Butter, softened
8 oz Cream cheese, softened
1 c Confectioner’s sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
2 pkg Instant choc-fudge pudding (4oz)
3 c. Milk
12 oz Whipped topping, 1 tub thawed

This is a joke, a bit of whimsy to lighten up your next party. The cake is really a quick mix dessert made with Oreo cookies and soft squishy stuff. The trick is to capture everyone’s attention with an announcement of some sort, and as you are speaking, trowel out some of the dirt from the flower pot around the flowers and eat it. May be followed by a worm dug out of the “dirt”. You may substitute vanilla pudding for the chocolate if you want, and use up to 20 oz of Oreo’s. Please use a clean new plastic flowerpot or take the precaution of lining a clay pot with foil and wrap the stems of live flowers if you use them in order to prevent any toxins from entering the dessert. Crush the cookies until they resemble potting soil. Set aside. Cream the butter or margarine, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth and fluffy. Set aside. Combine the pudding mix and milk until well blended. Then fold in the whipped topping. Gently fold the cream cheese and pudding mixtures together. To put the “cake” together, layer one-third of the cookie crumbs followed by 1/2 of the pudding mixture, 1/3 of the crumbs, the rest of the pudding mixture and topping with the balance of the crumbs. Refrigerate 10-12 hours before serving.

Remove from refrigerator, decorate with flowers. Serve by digging out portions with the trowel. Serves 10 to 12.

Chocolate Armpit Hairs

3 large shredded wheat bundles
3 TBSP. honey
1 TBSP. light brown sugar
1 6oz. bag milk chocolate chips
2 TBSP. butter or margarine


Break up shredded wheat bundles into single long strands, so that they have the appearance of armpit hairs. Set aside. Place the honey, brown sugar, chocolate chips, and butter in a medium sized heavy saucepan and heat over low to melt. Gently stir mixture with a rubber spatula. Mixture should be smooth and glossy. Remove the saucepan from burner and place it on a heat safe work surface. Gently fold in shredded wheat. When the shredded wheat is completely coated, scoop it onto wax paper in nine equal portions. Use a fork to gently rake “hairs” into one direction. To set Chocolate Armpit Hairs, place them in refrigerator for about thirty minutes. If there are any hairy bundles left over, keep them stored in the refrigerator.

Potty Jell-O

Purchase the plastic bowl that fits in a child’s potty training chair (they sell them at places like K-Mart). Wash the bowl and prepare lemon Jell-O per package directions. Float miniature O-Henry bars in it, refrigerate, and serve.

Aquarium Jell-O

Goldfish Bowl
Red hots or Jelly Belly Gravel Beans (looks like rocks)
Blue Jell-O
Ice cubes
Cold water
Purple endive
Parsley sprigs
Gummy fish
For Toxic Aquarium use:
Plastic people
Life Savers (dark ones)
Orange Jell-O

Use a new or clean gold fish bowl. In the bottom, use red hot or Jelly Belly gravel beans. Mix up, as much blue Jell-O and the bowl will hold. Mix using ice cubes and cold water instead of just cold water as called for on the box. Pour this into the bowl over a knife blade or something to keep from disturbing the gravel. If you want it to have seaweed, poke in a couple of purple endive or something similar down in the gravel. When the whole thing starts to jell, use a wooden skewer to push gummy fish into different parts of the bowl. You can even place a plastic diver man.
To make a Toxic Aquarium. Mix orange and blue Jell-O to get a sickly shade of green. Lifesavers make old tires and you can toss in other junky things for trash on the bottom of the sea. Something barrel-shaped for that illegally dumped toxic waste. Float your fish upside down on top, and add a plastic skeleton or two.

Spider Cake

Take your average cake mix. Bake it up in 2 metal bowls–1 bigger than the other. One unmolded, cut the bigger one (the “body”) in half, horizontally. CAREFULLY scoop out an adequate cavity in each half. FILL with well-whipped set green Jell-O, and reattach the halves. You can do the same thing for the head too. Frost black, arrange on serving platter. Use licorice sticks as legs. Use 2 BIG green gumdrops and 6 little ones as eyes. When the cake is cut into, it spurts green goop, just like a real spider when stepped on.

Pour the Parmesan into a small bowl and add five drops each yellow, red and green food coloring until it’s an even shade of mold green. (Use plastic bag to prevent your fingers from staining.) Set aside.

With an adult’s help, broil the pizzas until the cheese has melted andbegun to brown. Remove from oven and let cool about 1 minute.

Carefully sprinkle mold on top of hot pizzas. Allow pies to coolslightly before you slip on a lab coat and serve. Serves 6 peakedpatients.
