DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • (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.
  • This will take about 400 hours.
  • If you are in a hurry, eliminate this step; you'll never know the difference.
  • Dip each ant into melted chocolate and place to drain on waxed paper.
  • If any of them are still able to crawl off the paper, let them go-- be a good sport!
