(and 3 other US presidential primary 2012 themed snacks)

Having a few friends over to watch the gripping TV coverage of this year's presidential primaries? And honestly, who isn't? You need some political party snacks!

Whichever nominee you're backing, we've got the perfect snack for you. Read on for full recipes for:
  • Twix Santorum
  • Mitt Hominy (a.k.a. Grit Romney)
  • Fig Newt Gingriches
  • Prawn Pauls
Author's note: It has been suggested that these recipes were designed to somehow poke fun at the fine patriots who are companionably wrestling for control of the Republican Party. Nothing could be further from the truth; this Instructable is a fond tribute rather than an attack. Believe me, the last thing I would want to do is accidentally smear Santorum where all the internet can see. I'm sure there are other sites for that.

Step 1: Twix Santorum

Ingredients 1.jpg

A guilty pleasure, this white and brown sludgy mess might not look appetizing, but it is surprisingly addictive. Imagine s'mores, with added caramel. Mmmm...

Because this recipe uses Twix chocolate bars, you can easily adjust the size of your snack: You can choose how many fingers you want to put in, depending on how full you're feeling. If it's your first time and you're not sure you'll like it, I recommend just using half a finger.

Ingredients:
  • Twix chocolate bars
  • Marshmallow fluff
  • Chocolate Graham crackers

Step 2:

Start by laying out your Graham crackers on a microwave-proof plate. Spread a thin layer of marshmallow fluff over each cracker. Don't go overboard; you only need enough to glue your Twix bits to your crackers. Remember: too much fluff can make your biscuit hard to eat.

Step 3:

Carefully position your fingers. Cut some grooves in them so that all the gooey goodness can leak out.

Now top your candy with a little more fluff.

If i had to pick only one of the above candidates, which one would you recommend?
PenfoldPlant (author)  randofo2 years ago
I would recommend going to a different party entirely.
Right on.

Vote Libertarian.
Definitely Ron Paul.

Ron Paul 2012!!! It's my liberty and I want it now!! Cool cookie ideas!!
sockless2 years ago
I must say that Twix Santorum is disgusting, I see where you got the idea from. However, good work on getting it into Instructables

But you sir, are disgusting, but clever, I would recommend something less gross for you next 'ible.
I think lbrewer has a good idea, make another one called 'O-bacon' for Obama, and make it a kind of bacon wrap.

I can't believe the amount of people in the comments making insults or saying negative things about the author for making snacks based on Republican candidates. The fact that someone bakes a cookie with your face on it is neither a compliment nor an insult. My Mom used to bake cookies shaped like Santa Claus on Christmas, and shaped like St. Patrick on St. Patricks day, does this mean we should be living in fear of threats from the I.R.A because these cookies she baked didn't look EXACTLY like St. Patrick?

What is it that people find so offensive about these cookies? Are they saying anything negative about these political candidates at all? These are just puns on their names really, 'Fig Newton' becomes 'Fig Newton Gingrich', and instead of 'Ron Paul' it's 'Prawn Paul'. It's not like these cookies are inedible or even unappealing, so why should anyone take offence?
Real newts are toxic. The amphibians I mean...

^_^! I like it
Well Done, especially the shrimps. I made the mistake of looking at your pictures, on an empty stomach. They look sehr tasty. (I flunked two years of German in comm. College. Thanks for the recipes and the humor.

Lets see if you can come up with a snack for the left side of the plate with out it falling off the edge. Like a nut bar for the X speaker of the house have it filled with something no can figure out right away. You have to try it to find what it is.

Very funny and clever!

Its a good thing there is no O-Bacan listed - the ham in it would rot everything else.

Now, I'm not saying the above food represents personalities who are the cream of the crop either (pun intended), but at least it would be a tasty meal rather than inducing a case of rot gut in U.S..

I like the idea and flavors of your twin Santorum, however, I can't seem to get Jon Stewart out of my head pointing out the meaning of santorum - or is that what you were going for???
PenfoldPlant (author)  wold6302 years ago
I'm not familiar with Jon Stewart's work, so I'm afraid I don't know what you mean. Are you suggesting there's another definition?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Campaign_for_%22santorum%22_neologism

I found this hilarious.
wold630 Ijsbeer2 years ago
I know! That is exactly what I am talking about.....some of the slang dictionaries have even picked it up not even referring to the man himself! Too funny!
Ijsbeer wold6302 years ago
Not that I was having a bad day or anything, but this made my day when I found out. ;)
I was hoping you wouldn't ask. Just google santorum and see what comes up - other than anything political or about the man himself!
lol... Jon Stewart is a RiOt!!!!! ;-D

Oliver! This is very good. I'm partial to the Fig Newt Gingriches myself, as I think they really capture something spiritual about his creepy face melt. I'd like to nominate the snack versions of these Republicans for President 2012.
Ijsbeer noahw2 years ago
They'd certainly do a better job of presidency than any of the actual Republican candidates.
danny61142 years ago
Great job! I think the Santorum would be tasty s'more or less, forgetting of course the associations.
