Mammo-Grahams (Breast Cancer Awareness Treat)

Mammo-Grahama Recipe by Hip2Save

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.

Mammo-Graham Cookies

(Marzipan recipe from foodnetwook.com)

Ingredients:

For Marzipan:
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
How to make marzipan Mammo-grahams

Directions:
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.

    Lina & Colin,
    As I look at the photo my first thought was I don’t have the gummy worm part anymore, bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction in Jan 2010. My invasive breast cancer was found on a routine mammogram. I’m still here today due to early detection and treatment so I wanted to chime in and let you know that no matter how this has been received by various posts above, you have accomplished your goal, you have made each person think. I urge each of you to think and get those mammograms and thanks Lina and Colin for the post.

    You can’t of course please everyone but it does promote awareness. Before I became a RN, I was a nutritionist, counseling in the hospitals and that was my first reaction here, the ingredients were far from healthful. But I choose my battles and think the awareness wins out. I was alarmed seeing vagina cookies in my Facebook feed one day, and on and on–penis cakes, ugh–some peps think that’s hilarious. The people I work with and for would be offended by things like that and perhaps this, so I try to be sensitive, but again, everyone will have a different opinion.

    I don’t think I’ll be making them, but i thank you for the reminder on mammograms and breast health! ( and thanks for the chuckle)

  4. Crystal

    Collin, thank you for sharing this! Love all the reactions! This truly has opened up a discussion and reminded everyone about breast cancer awareness!

    Thank you for raising awareness! My own family has been greatly impacted by breast cancer. For those women who are of child baring age, it’s rarely talked about but there is something that you can do to significantly reduce your risk of breast cancer (and reduce your child’s risk as well). Breastfeeding is one of two “lifestyle factors” that is associated with “convincing decreased risk” of breast cancer for all women (family history or not) — exercise is the other.

    but wait! they stick that lovely silver bead (lead?) on your nipples to mark the center….so you could stick one of those silver BB’s candies on the gummy worm and this would look right! By the way, that sticker thing is the most painful part of the whole test, removing it! OUCH!

    omg, just saw this post…absolutely hilarious! whatever it takes to make people laugh and not forget this important test! reminds me of something funny – – a few months ago, there was a car next to me at a red light. they were clearly trying to get my attention, laughing and pointing to the bumper sticker of the car in front of them that said “I LOVE BOOBIES”. they clearly hadn’t seen this before, and probably didn’t understand it ALSO was a funny breast cancer thing. i will never forget the look of shock and laughter on their faces! much like my face when seeing this post. thanks for the laughter – go get your tests done, girls 😉

      That really isn’t funny for a lot of breast cancer patients or survivors, considering that most of them will have part or all of their breasts removed. Those surgeries are stressful enough without “jokes” that are more interested in an already oversexualized body part than their lives. My cousin had a very painful and drawn out battle with breast cancer and it’s very upsetting to see people who don’t have any idea about the effects of breast cancer going around saying “Save the tatas!” This is the only cancer I’ve ever seen people try to “joke” about in such an inappropriately sexual way.

      • meg

        I’m sorry but you are the one that is making this “sexual”! And I and a lot of people certainly do know the effects of breast cancer! No one is making fun of or trying to be sexual! So stop assuming you know what everyone else is thinking. People handle things differently. Life is short…laugh a little.

      • Tanya

        Lynn, I have to agree with Meg on this. I have 2 friends and both love the “Save The Ta Tas” and “I Love Boobies” tshirts, bumper stickers etc. They have both said it is great to see those supporting the cause, even if they don’t understand what people are going through those supporting are always very sincere. Its a horrible disease that is changing womans lives forever, young and old. People need to be aware, reminded that life is precious and this disease can take over and one of us. Think Pink, is the best support we as women could ever have. As for it being sexual, really???? Not one person I know buys, wears, supports and of this just because its boobies !! They do it because they CARE!!!

    Wish there was a more comfortable way to do these, why are we still squishing ourselves….it’s 2014! You would think there would be a better way.
    Lina, next, do a rectal/anal cancer cookie of some sort, why not?

  9. Laura

    Kind of a late post, and I’m not sure if anyone has mentioned this or not yet, but here goes… Younger ladies, please be aware that mammograms are not suited for younger breasts, because our breast tissue is too dense. Currently, I am 22 and roughly two years ago, I found a lump and then was informed that I would need to undergo a breast ultrasound instead of a mammogram because of the density of my breast tissue. Luckily, it’s a fibroadenoma – a benign tumor, but I still have to monitor it in case it grows in size. Anyway, just a little tidbit of info to keep in mind for you younger ladies out there!

  10. Joy

    How could this be tweaked for male breast cancer? Let’s not forget the other gender. My father is a survivor for 6 years now with a mastectomy of one of his breast. What’s out there to help him stay strong and survive while raising awareness?
