Make Your Own Edible 'Alien' Eggs


Just like the Queen Mama Alien used to make! No need to fertilize, these bite-sized delights are easy to make and even easier to eat, if you can control your gag reflex.

Like the real thing, the eggs have outer "shells" that peel away to uncover the delightfully gooey horrors inside. But unlike the real thing, they are cruelty-free (no baby Facehuggers) and totally vegan.

Quite delicious, the recipe comes from the ladies of Slash & Dine:

12 oz dried figs
4 oz almond paste
3 tbsp almonds
1/4 cup candied orange peel
Agave or honey

Chop almonds and peel in food processor. Add almond paste and pulse a few times. Remove from food processor and use your hands to mix the paste with the almonds and peel.
Trim stems from top of figs. Cut a cross in each fig, but do cut through the bottom.
Fill each fig with about 1 tsp of the almond paste. Press the fig back into shape around the paste.

Warning: May cause a gut-busting sensation if too many are ingested.
