- 1 (8 ounce) jar Cheez Whiz
- to taste green food coloring
- 25 pretzel sticks
- 1 long handled spoon
- Melt the cheeze whiz in the microwave or on top of the stove, according to directions on the jar.
- Allow the cheese to cool slightly in the jar.
- Using a long handled spoon, carefully stir about three drops of green food coloring into the warm cheese, using just enough to turn the cheese a delicate snot green.
- To form boogers: Dip and twist the tip of each pretzel stick into the cheese, lift out, wait twenty seconds, then dip again.
- When cheese lumps reach an appealingly boogerish size, set pretzels, booger down, onto a sheet of waxed paper.
- Allow finished boogers on a stick to cool at room temperature for ten minutes or until cheese is firm.
- Gently pull boogers off waxed paper and arrange on a serving platter.
- Serves 5 to 6 booger buddies.
- Sicko Serving Suggestion: Place a bowl of chunky red salsa in the center of the platter so that guests can turn plain boogers into bloody ones.
This is the first recipe given a thumbs up by all three of my children. Oh well. I substituted toast cut into oblong shapes (they look more finger like, after all).
I had planned to make a tray of these to take to share with my students in my 7th and 8th grade tutoring sessions. However, after dipping a few pretzels, I found that the cheese doesn't really set up and remains very gooey. Also, the longer the completed pretzels sit, the mushier the cheese covered portion of the pretzel becomes. So...I just provided a bowl of green-tinted cheese (boogers) for the pretzels to be dipped by the students. Everyone thought that it was a cute idea...and it is simple enough in flavor that all of the kids enjoyed it. It made our last day of classes before Halloween a bit more fun.
