A Creative Snack Bowl

I recently found this recipe on Food Network.  It's a snack bowl formed out of snack mix.  They call it Super Bowl.  I think it's clever and a really neat idea.  And . . . it's edible.

2 large egg whites
2 Tbsp water
6 cups snack mix (such as Chex Mix or Asian rice cracker mix)

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  Beat the egg whites and 2 Tbsp water in a large bowl with a mixer until slightly stiff peaks form.  Add the snack mix and toss until evenly coated.  

Generously coat a 3-quart ovenproof bowl with cooking spray and place the snack mix in it.  Crumple a large sheet of foil and mold it into a bowl shape about 1/3 the size of the 3-quart bowl.  Coat the outside of the foil bowl with cooking spray and press into the snack mix to make a well in the middle, forming the snack mix into a bowl shape.  

Place the bowl with the foil in the oven and bake until the snack mix sets - 30 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let cool slightly (about 5 minutes).  Carefully remove the foil.  Cool 30 more minutes, invert the edible bowl onto a plate and cool completely.  Fill with your choice of snack mix.
