Winter Bear Kids Snack

Winter weather got you down? Snow and ice seriously cramping your style (and keeping your kids home from school and stuck in the house all day)? It’s time to take your revenge the elements – sweet revenge, that is. This Winter Bear Kids Snack might not be exactly what you need to combat Mother Nature, but it will certainly go a long way toward keeping those little earth-bound monsters we like to call “children” happy while the storm rages outside…for at least a few minutes.

How to Make a Winter Bear Kids Snack:

For how cute these little bears are, they are super easy to make! Take one of your freshly baked sugar cookies (or one of your freshly store bought ones – I won’t judge you. Much.) and spread that delicious, delicious frosting over the top of it. Coat the frosting with the shredded coconut – hint hint, this is supposed to look like fur. Place a white Necco wafer on top, just slightly off center, wherever you think a nose would probably go. Dab a tiny bit of frosting on the bottom of a mini Reese’s cup and place it on top of the Necco wafer. The candy eyes, obviously, go above the nose where you might usually find a pair of eyes. Stick the mini marshmallows on the top sides of the cookie to make the bear’s ears. And that’s it! Enjoy!
