October is Breast Cancer Awareness month! If you’re looking for a fun treat to make in honor of this month, check out these cute and clever no-bake Mammo-Grahams! Inspired by the cookies created by Apron Strings, I’ve made my version using marzipan which can easily be made from almond paste found in the baking aisle of the grocery store.
(Marzipan recipe from foodnetwook.com)
7 oz package of Almond Paste
1 and 3/4 cups Powdered Sugar
2 Tablespoons Light Corn Syrup
1 sleeve graham crackers
Gummy Worms (Red Hots or pink M&M’s could also work!)
Pink Decorating Icing for ribbon
Combine almond paste and 1 cup of the powdered sugar using an electric mixer. Once combined, add the remainder of the powdered sugar and continue mixing. Mix in the corn syrup until you get a crumb-like mixture. Knead on a flat surface until dough forms. Divide dough into seven balls. Press ball onto half a graham cracker and add the tip of a gummy worm to one side. Cover with other half of graham cracker and draw a ribbon with pink icing on top of cracker. Makes about 7 treats.
