How gross, right??? And how completely fantastic at the same time, right???

I wish I could take credit for this brilliant idea, but no. Paul found it. Oh, internet…you silly, wacky place. You’re awesome.

So, he showed it to me, and I literally made them 20 minutes later – I just happened to have the Q-Tip box for pictures. Fate, I say. 

I also had the mini marshmallows. Of course. I did not have butterscotch chips, but there was unopened Biscoff spread in my pantry that was given to me months ago. I figured it would work fine. Um…fine is an understatement. Have you ever had it? Good lord. Friends, it’s cookie butter spread. And the container is now empty.

These swabs are too easy and so much fun. And worth hearing the kids say “Eeeew!!” Or Trevor, “Mommy, is this what real earwax tastes like?”

It’s just so wrong. I love Halloween.

Edible Earwax on a Swab (for Halloween)
Makes as many or as few as you want!

What you need
• Mini marshmallows
• Biscoff spread*
• 4 inch lollipop sticks

Poke a mini marshmallow on the end of each lollipop stick and then dab some biscoff spread around the tops of each one. That’s it!

*You could also use melted butterscotch chips, or any nut butter (such as peanut, sunflower, almond, or cashew.)

Only vaguely related: I am yet to try cookie butter because I am terrified that I’ll never stop eating it.

(They should make an ecard about that.)

I’m not sure whether to gag or kiss you. I think I’ll go with the latter.
