Recipe is just a 'Nutter' sandwich

Posted: Sunday, November 17, 2002

GLENDALE, Calif. (AP) -- It sounds like a recipe only Elvis could love: a peanut butter sandwich with chocolate chips, crispy rice cereal, powdered sugar and dried cherries.

But the ''Chip Chompin Cherry Nutter'' won 7-year-old Emily McComas the grand prize in a ''Got Milk?'' recipe contest.

''This was a very creative and very good-tasting sandwich -- it won hands down,'' said Jeff Manning, executive director of the California Milk Processor Board.

Emily and her family won a trip to New York City, where her sandwich was unveiled at Peanut Butter and Co., a Greenwich Village deli that specializes in peanut butter sandwiches.

Emily's recipe licked more than 100 other entries, including one by her brother. Among the contenders were ''Rainbow in the Clouds,'' which included marshmallow fluff, bananas and M&Ms, and ''Caribbean Nut Butter Sandwich,'' made with banana, shredded coconut and pineapple.

But Emily told the Daily News of Los Angeles that her creation wasn't her favorite way to eat peanut butter.

''My dad is the one that really likes the sandwich,'' she said. ''Everyone is talking about my sandwich, and I'm kind of getting bored with it.''
