       Title: CHOCOLATE COVERED ANTS
  Categories: Snacks, Desserts
       Yield: 6 servings
  
    1742 lg Ants, (if they are sm.,
            -use 2,044)
       3 c  Melted chocolate
  
   Catch ants at a picnic site and keep them in a glass jar to which you
   have added a teaspoon of sugar to keep them happy.  (Unhappy ants are
   liable to go sour before processing.)  At home, pick up each ant with
   tweezers and remove entrails with a small, very sharp knife edge.
   This will take about 400 hours.  If you are in a hurry, eliminate
   this step; you'll never know the difference. Dip each ant into melted
   chocolate and place to drain on waxed paper.  If any of them are
   still able to crawl off the paper, let them go -- be a good sport!!
