    Ear exudate? Cartoon cerumen? (That’s Latin for ear wax, doncha know.)

    Do I need to say any more?

    Shrek's Dirty Q-Tips for Halloween on Shockingly DeliciousHow about if I assure you that these were the hit of the 5th grade Halloween party last year, and that more than one kid narrowed his eyes and gave me a slightly sickened sidelong glance.

    Whose mother was so creepy to have brought Shrek’s ear wax?

    Recipe: Shrek’s Dirty Q-Tips for Halloween

    Summary:  What’s inside Shrek’s ears? Disgusting troll ear wax that will delight and gross out Halloween party guests! Shrek’s Dirty Q-Tips make delicious snacks! 


    • 1 box original Q-Tips
    • 1 bag mini marshmallows
    • 1 bag white chocolate chips
    • Green food coloring (I used the dry kind)


    1. Line a baking sheet or plate with waxed paper. Set aside.
    2. Insert a mini marshmallow onto each end of a Q-Tip. Push them on enough so they adhere, but not so much they start to resemble barbells. (You know what I mean?)
    3. Melt some chocolate chips in a little bowl in the microwave, and stir in a drop or pinch of food coloring. Make the color suit your idea of what Shrek’s ear exudate might look like.
    4. Swirl each marshmallow end into the green chocolate and coat the marshmallow thickly.
    5. Place each gory green Q-Tip on the waxed paper and allow to dry and harden. When hard, move to a serving platter. Put the rest of the box of Q-Tips on the platter, to give people the idea of what you’re doing here.
    6. Be sure to affix a creepy sign so they know how clever you are.Shrek's Dirty Q-Tips for Halloween on Shockingly Delicious
    7. Enjoy your new reputation as the sickest mom out there!
