    Units: US | Metric

    • 1742 large ants (if they are small, use 2,044)
    • 3 cups melted chocolate


    1. 1
      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.
    2. 2
      (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.
    3. 3
      This will take about 400 hours.
    4. 4
      If you are in a hurry, eliminate this step; you'll never know the difference.
    5. 5
      Dip each ant into melted chocolate and place to drain on waxed paper.
    6. 6
      If any of them are still able to crawl off the paper, let them go-- be a good sport!

      Hey everybody, chocolate-covered Ants are very good...they taste like chocolate-covered raisins! I wouldn't have the patience to clean 'em, but remember the chocolate-covered raisin bit the next time you're at the concession stand at the movies!
