Patriotic Themed Treat for the 4th

This is a really fun idea for a 4th of July party or picnic! I just found it and fell in love! It's so cute, and yummy as well! I tried it out to see how well it worked, and the results came out fantastic! This is the recipe for 12 eagles, but it's easy to make more!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup White Chocolate Chips
  • 12 large Marshmallows
  • 12 Cashews
  • 1 package Finely Shredded Coconut
  • 1 tube Black Decorating Gel
  • Chocolate Covered Sandwich Cookies

Instructions

  1. Melt the white chocolate chips as directed. **(Go slower than you think, I always have trouble getting it just right because it gets too hot. If you have trouble, substitute the melted chocolate for white icing)**
  2. Coat a marshmallow with the melted chocolate.
  3. Roll coated marshmallow in the shredded coconut until covered.
  4. Add a little melted chocolate to the top of the sandwich cookie for "glue", and set the coconut ball on top.
  5. Let the chocolate set a bit, and then use a toothpick to make a hole for the cashew beak.
  6. Top off with two eyes using the gel and voila!
