Okay,

I made the edible ashtray mix.

The mix in a bowl


Close Up


Here's how to make it yourself. You need:
  • Oreos
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Candy Cigarettes

How to Prepare:
  • I removed the black oreo shells from the creamy filling and put them in a dehydrator (or just bake them on a really low setting for a while). The goal is to get the cookies to crumble into a dry powder instead of the slightly moist cookie they start out as.
  • Then, put the cookies in a mortar and pestle and break them down. Sift them into a bowl.
  • Sift the powdered sugar on top and stir a little. You want patches of black and white here and there.
  • break some candy cigarettes in half and burn the ends with a lighter.
  • Moisten the ends and "put them out" in the ash. The ash should stick to the moistened ends.

My ash-to-butt ratio is a little high but this is my proof-of-concept so I'll tray again a little closer to Halloween.

I haven't done this yet, but I have plans to:

  • Color the ends with food color to make them look more like butts.
  • Actually put it in ashtrays (I'll look at Goodwill)

Enjoy!

hey chuck_t, thats an awesome idea! i have a suggestion though, that would make it a bit easier. instead of buying oreo cookies,removing the filling, dehydrating them, breaking them, and sifting them, why not buy a box of oreo cookie crumbs? precrumbled, already dried, nice small pieces...

seriously though, thats a wicked idea. brings back childhood memories of candy cigarettes!

I hadn't thought of the Oreo pre-boxed crumbs. That's a great idea!

This would be awesome on top of something like pudding maybe, and served at a dinner party where everyone gets their own ashtray. Could you imagine your guests' faces when you served them this after a nice meal?

It'd be great for april fools!
