Recipe For Your Next Trailer Park Party


Because I've been so busy at work lately that it has carried over to home, I've lacked my usual blogenergy. This morning, I resort to stealing Alena's recipe idea, which wasn't even her own idea but Harpy's. Still, I'm doing it with more flair...I saw this recipe years ago at Jolene's and have never hosted the proper event at which to serve them. Maybe a white trash party for my 45th? That gives Biggy over a year to plan it.

Catbox Cookies (Choose either chocolate or gingerbread)

Chocolate ingredients:
1/2 cup honey
2/3 cup (1 and 1/3 stick) butter, margarine, or lard
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla or peppermint extract
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
Grape-Nuts™ cereal

Gingerbread ingredients:
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup molasses
2/3 cup (1 and 1/3 stick) butter, margarine, or lard
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla or peppermint extract
2 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
Spices (ginger, cinnamon, cloves) to taste (suggest with 1/2 tsp each)
Grape-Nuts™ cereal

Mix-ins (to your level of tolerance):
Coconut Tapeworms
Chocolate Chips
Butterscotch Chips
Peanut Butter Chips
Cooked Spagetti or Ramen noodles Roundworms
Corn
Peanuts
M & Ms
Shrimp Chips Styrofoam packing

Microwave the honey till it bubbles(about 1 minute). Add the butter, (I've been told using lard makes for a more realistic texture and softer cookie) and the molasses, if any. Add the egg, mix well, then mix in all the other stuff. add mix-ins of your choice to some or all of the batter.

Chill 1 hour in the freezer or several hours in the fridge. Roll dough logs of random length and the diameter of cat poop. Roll logs in Grape-Nuts and bake at 350 degrees till done (maybe 20 minutes.

Serve in a disposable cat litter box on a bed of grapenuts, with a cat litter scoop. Improved effects can be achieved by decorating the box and scoop with melted chocolate or pudding. The contributor has heard that "mixing brown sugar with the Grape-Nuts sweetens up the cookie a bit while still looking truly hideous."

Bah. This is just pretend white trash. If you want to have "real" white trash food, you fry Spam in a skillet and serve it with cold pork n' beans and biscuits made in the same drinking glass grandma keeps her teeth in to soak overnight. Those are called "cathead" biscuits by the way.

I LOVE litter box cakes....yummmy. Unfortunately, having 2 cats and 2 step-cats, sometimes it is a bit to close to the reality that is my cat-poop-scooping life.

I hate to put a damper on this creative idea, but I have to offer a warning against using a cat litter box and litter scoop. These items are not made of food-grade plastic. Please see the following link. The original post suggests lining the box with an approved food-grade plastic and using the scoop for decoration only - not to serve with.
