Sugar Aunts: Penguin Themed Snacks

Penguin Themed Snacks

We've been on a Penguin kick around here lately.  We took out a bunch of Penguin themed books from the library recently and have been having fun playing penguin games, making penguin snacks, and even penguin learning!  Watch this space for more penguin fun, coming soon!
These Penguin snacks were just the thing we needed one day when the temps were sooooo cold outside that we felt like penguins at preschool pick-up!  Our penguin snacks were the perfect ending to a frigidly cold day.  And, slightly owl-like, I think they would make a great owl treat too ;)

Start with a little melted milk chocolate (I just used a chocolate bar broken up into pieces) and melted white candy melts, in two separate bowls.  Try not to dip your finger in and sneak a little when the kids aren't watching...

Dip round crackers 3/4 of the way in the melted white chocolate.  Let this harden in the fridge.  Or just put it outside on the porch like I did in the single-digit temps.  The chocolate will harden in a flash!

You'll need to make sure the white chocolate is hardened before you dip the crackers again in the ilk chocolate.  Otherwise, you'll get a mix of the two chocolates.  Once the white chocolate is hardened, dip each side and the very top of the penguins in milk chocolate.  Big Sister helped with the dipping part.  She enjoyed helping to make sure the crackers were covered "just right"!

Run outside and put the cookie sheet on your porch to let the milk chocolate harden.  Or just throw it in your fridge for a while.

Pour out a handful of sprinkles and admire their prettiness.  Pull out a few of the orange ones.  You'll need them for the Penguin's feet and beaks.

I found these candy eyeballs on super clearance after Halloween and knew they would come in handy. Stick the orange sprinkles and candy eyes onto the penguins with a bit of the left over melted chocolate.  Pulling out the correct amount of orange sprinkles and eyes was a great job for Big Sister and Little Guy.  They made sure we had enough for each penguin.  And only snuck a few. ;)

Your penguins/owls are done!

Enjoy your penguin treats! Little Guy sure did!
