    6                    Egg whites
    1       c            Sugar
                         Red food coloring
                         Pink or red cake crystals
    2       sm           Bowls
            lg           Mixing bowl
                         Parchment paper
                         Cookie sheet
                         Popsickle sticks
   With an adult’s help, position an oven rack on the lowest shelf, and
 preheat oven to 2ooF.      Separate the whites from the yolks of the eggs
 into two small bowls.   Make sure there are no yolks in the bowl of whites.
 Rapidly beat the eggs until they form stiff peaks. Slowly stir   spoonfuls
 of sugar into the whites and continue to beat until the   entire cup of
 sugar has been added. the whites should now form stiff,   shiny peaks. Add
 tow to three drops of red food coloring      Place a sheet of parchment
 paper on a cookie sheet.      To form tongues: Spoon about 3 tablespoons of
 meringue in the shape   of a tongue onto the parchment paper. Tongues should
 be the length of   the popsicle sticks. Press a popsicle stick gently into
 the center of   the tongue, leaving about 2 of stick hanging o      Bake
 about 3 hours or until tongues are completely dry to the touch.   Allow to
 cool completely before carefully lifting them off the paper.   Makes about
 12 little lickers.      Sicko serving suggestion: To serve coated tongues,
 use a toothpick to   spread a thin layer of mucus (marshmallow topping) down
 the length of   the lickers.      From the Book: Gross Grub by Cheryl Porter
