"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
I love this recipe because there is no baking involved. My kids love it (even Ethan, who hates chocolate). You have to be pretty accurate with the measurements, though, because they
can end up too dry or too runny if you don't. Affectionately dubbed "cow dung" because of their finished appearance - not taste!
