Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1742 large ants (if they are small, use 2,044)
  • 3 cups melted chocolate

Directions

  1. Catch ants at a picnic site and keep them in a glass jar to which you have added a teaspoon of sugar to keep them happy.
  2. (Unhappy ants are liable to go sour before processing.) At home, pick up each ant with tweezers and remove entrails with a small, very sharp knife edge.
  3. This will take about 400 hours.
  4. If you are in a hurry, eliminate this step; you'll never know the difference.
  5. Dip each ant into melted chocolate and place to drain on waxed paper.
  6. If any of them are still able to crawl off the paper, let them go-- be a good sport!
