- Mamo-Grahams shopping list
- This is actually very easy to put together, and, yes, inexpensive too, using potatoes as a base. One option for the, er, fleshy part of the Mammo-Grahams was making them out of marzipan, but that could get very pricy very quickly. So I based them on a recipe for potato candy I found in Paula Deen’s dessert cookbook from The Lady and Sons; it’s normally used to make Easter egg shapes. To make about a dozen, depending on, uh, cup size: shopping list
- potato Candy: shopping list
- 2 medium potatoes shopping list
- 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, chopped shopping list
- 2 16 ounce boxes powdered sugar shopping list
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or almond, actually, if you really wanted faux-marzipan) shopping list
- 2-3 tablespoons peanut butter shopping list
- 1-2 tablespoons cocoa powder shopping list
- Other Mammo-Graham materials: shopping list
- 6 regular graham cracker rectangles, each broken into 2 squares (I personally now go with these gluten-free grahams from Kinnickinnick) shopping list
- 6 chocolate graham cracker rectangles, each broken into 2 squares shopping list
- about 1/4 cup milk chocolate chips shopping list
- about a dozen pink M&Ms, preferably both plain and peanut shopping list
How to make it
- Boil the potatoes just until soft. Drain, mash, and measure 1/2 cup out into a mixing bowl. Make a small snack of the excess with some sour cream and chives, I say. Add butter into mixing bowl, mix in thoroughly, and let cool completely(very important). Add sugar and vanilla/almond extract, knead until smooth.
- Roll some of the dough into various ball sizes. Then add the peanut butter and knead thoroughly again – you may want to make a few different ‘complexions’, so you can add it in in increments, make a couple more balls, and repeat. Follow the same process with the cocoa, adding incrementally to represent different complexions!
- Now gently squeeze each ball between a pair of graham crackers. Melt the chocolate chips (either in a microwave in 30 second increments or in a double boiler). Transfer to a ziploc bag, cut off the corner (as small as you can manage) and pipe some nice zigzaggy flourishes on top of each sandwich. Finally, complete each mammary with its own M&M nipple, using shades of pink and tan and brown as you please.
