Did the title catch your attention? It caught mine. Maybe I have a warped sense of humor, or maybe these appealed to me because of personal experience. Growing up in the mountains with my dog, Bandit, left me with a lasting aversion to ticks. Whatever the case, I knew I had to make this recipe.
Yesterday I checked out "The Scout's Outdoor Cookbook" from the library. I don't buy most books I check out, but I'm definitely going to buy this one. There are a TON of great recipes for the outdoors and camping...I can't wait to try more. Anyways, here's the recipe for "Ticks on a Toilet Seat."
Ticks on a Toilet Seat The Scout's Outdoor Cookbook
1. Remove core from apples. (My apple corer also cuts up my entire apple, which I didn't want to do, so I just used a knife.)
2. Cut apples crosswise into slices about 1/4-inch thick to form circles with holes in the middle...sort of like toilet seats!
3. Spread peanut butter on apple slices and then decorate with raisins to look like the "ticks" on the "toilet seats."
Enjoy! My son did.
