These ear wax snacks are a super easy and fun Halloween party snack! I've used peanut butter here, but sunflower butter tastes just as good if you've got any allergies to worry about. :D Many commenters have also mentioned subbing in caramel, which sounds perfect too!

As a bonus, they're a great busy task for tiny hands, so kids can get involved with Halloween party prepping!

Step 1: What You'll Need:

  • smooth peanut butter
  • mini marshmallows
  • lollipop sticks
  • q-tip box for display (optional but neat!)

You should be able to find the lollipop sticks online at the link above or at your local Michael's/Joanns/etc. Most of them come quite long - the ones I had were eight inches long and I cut them into three pieces each using heavy duty kitchen shears.

Another option is to use candy cigarettes - I couldn't find them locally when I did this project, but they would work so well!

Step 2: Make the Snacks

This is really easy! Spoon a few tablespoons of peanut butter into a small bowl and warm it up for 10-20 seconds in the microwave. You don't want it super runny, but just a little easier to spread. :)

Push a mini marshmallow onto each end of the lollipop stick and either dip them in the peanut butter or smooth it on with a butter knife.

Lay them out in a q-tip box if you have one around, or just with a sign calling out what they are so you're sure to gross people out. :D

<p>These are great! You should somehow make them with edible sticks. </p>
<p>Ugh! :)</p>
<p>Chunky peanut butter!</p>
Chunky peanut butter and jelly!
<p>Chunky peanut butter and RED jelly!</p>

<p>it was me, I lost my cookies.</p><p>You guys are gross :D</p>
<p>Imagine all of these ideas lined up on one plate! Would you like some earwax and blood, or a little mold and blood? ;D</p>
<p>Chunky peanut butter and RED jelly and GREEN cotton candy mould!</p>
<p>I would love to freak people out with these! &quot;Hey, come grab an earwax coated Q-tip to eat!&quot; </p>
<p>Everyone was quick to grab a Ear Wax Snack or two&hellip;after being initially sooooo grossed out. Thanks!</p>
<p>Loved your idea so much that we made them today for my 10 year old daughter's Halloween/Birthday/Sleepover. We used Popeye candy sticks (cigarettes) and melted caramels for the &quot;ear wax&quot;. Hope we gross out a few kids tonight ;-)</p><p>Thanks for sharing the great ideas!</p>
<p>make it with pretzel sticks</p>
Where do you get lollipop sticks?
<p>You can normally get them at craft store that have candy making and cake decorating supplies! Otherwise you can get them <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000W5CGR8/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000W5CGR8&linkCode=as2&tag=httpwwwinst0d-20&linkId=GO6BBPEQ544KCIDN" target="_blank">on amazon</a>.</p>
Go to the dollar tree, they'll probably have candy sticks, and they will work fine.
<p>This looks delicious. I would like to try for my cute baby. Thanks for sharing/</p>
I love this idea for lil ones. I used yogurt or white chocolate dipped pretzel sticks. A little safer than sucker sticks. They was a hit with younger kids &quot;No Fear&quot; to say lol! I will use at my Halloween lil1's Halloween party. Thanks much! ~@}~~^~~~
<p>Disgustingly awesome! May have to do this at the school Halloween parties much to the disgust of other mothers. My boys would love it!</p>
<p>Hahaha! Awesome!</p>
<p>these are disgusting, but awesome. way to go. :D</p>
<p>Yeah, finding the candy cigarettes anymore can be difficult simply because many &quot;adults&quot; don't want their kids to have them.</p>
<p>LOL So funny. I love it! </p>
<p>Is anyone actually brave enough to eat those? </p>

<p>You could dip them in chocolate first, then caramel, for a truly filthy-ear look.</p>
<p>Or you could dip in caramel first and sprinkle chocolate shavings as ear hair!</p>
