Tasty Turds

Fresh from the toilet, these tasty turds look so lifelike, they’ll turn your stomach. This gross Halloween recipe is easy to make and eat… that is, once you make yourself take the first bite.

These turds are actually Rice Krispie Treats or popcorn balls.

1 recipe Rice Krispy treats or popcorn balls, still hot and unshaped
12 oz. semisweet chocolate
2 tbsp. shortening
1 small pkg. candy corns
wooden skewers (optional)


1. With a knife, remove the red and orange sections from candy corns, leaving only the yellow “corn” tops.
Yellow M&Ms can be used in place of the yellow candy corn tops, but as they are uniformly round they won’t give the same, well… “undigested corn” appearance. Yuck. ‘Nuff said.

2. Prepare Rice Krispy treats or popcorn balls recipe as directed. (Rice Krispy treats are easier to shape).

3. Instead of shaping into balls or pressing into a pan, form the treats into oblong “turd” shapes. Let cool to set.

4. In a double boiler or in the microwave, melt together chocolate and shortening, stirring until well combined.

5. Using a wooden skewer (or a fork), skewer each “turd” treat and dip into warm chocolate.

6. Set on wax paper. While still warm, press 3-4 candy corn tops into chocolate.

7. Repeat. Let cool to set.
