My Mum came over yesterday to watch Mads for an hour, and she casually reminded me that Thanksgiving is just around the corner.
Me: Oooh! What can I bring?? Do you need anything?
Mum: Uhhh, there's already going to be lots of food. Why don't you just pick up one of those cheese ball things at Walmart?
Me: I could make one.
Mum: No! Oh no, you don't have to do that, they're real cheap at Walmart.
I'll pick up her stupid cheese ball from Walmart, but dammit I'm going to make something too. I've spent the whole morning looking up Thanksgiving recipes. I figured I would bring some kind of hors d'oeuvre to compliment my Walmart ball of cheese, since themes make me happy. Spinach dip had too many ingredients, pumpkin dip was too easy, and antipasto platters just don't involve enough cooking for me. I've settled on stuffed mushrooms because I really like mushrooms, and hell, how can you screw up a mushroom stuffed with random junk? We'll see how it goes.
While I was doing my easy food search, I came across a post on Babycenter for Vagina Candies. I thought it was a typo, until I saw the picture.
Preheat your oven to 350
1. Upwrap your Rolos. Place pretzels on baking sheet. Top with a Rolo.
2. Bake in oven for 3-5 minutes, until the chocolate just begins to melt. The Rolo should be soft but not completely melted.
3. Remove from oven, place on cooling rack and immediately squish the chocolate with a nut. Watch the caramel oooze out. YUM!
