This is a fun patriotic kid's project for any patriotic, American holiday. My wonderful cousin Kim sent this recipe over and my boys just had to make them. It was the perfect rainy, summer day to stay indoors and put these together.
A tray of these with some American flags will have your guest's taste buds soaring! Cute for Eagle Scouts too.
- 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
- 6 large marshmallows
- finely shredded coconut
- 6 chocolate covered sandwich cookies (we used Oreo Fudge Creams)
- 6 whole cashews
- black decorator's gel
- Melt chocolate chips according to the package directions. For each bird, drop a large marshmallow into the melted chocolate, using a spatula, coat it well. Remove the marshmallow from the chocolate and roll it in the coconut, leaving one end uncovered. Immediately set the marshmallow, coconut free end down, atop chocolate cookie. Let the chocolate set a bit, then use a toothpick to make a hole in the side of the marshmallow and insert a cashew in the beak. Finally, add black decorator's gel eyes.
