This is a very simple snack. I like cute food, but I am certainly not one of those people who can make elaborate and beautiful foods. I like to keep it simple!
I began by using a circle cookie cutter to cut a piece of bread. You could also use a glass to cut the circle shape.
I covered that circle with tiny trapeze all natural marshmallow creme. It's like Fluff, but from Whole Foods.
Then I cut another circle out of bread, covered that in chocolate hazelnut spread (like Nutella) and cut the circle in half to make wings.
A peppermint patty became the head, and I used icing to make the eyes, beak, and feet.
Penguin Day by Victoria Winteringham is a fun picture book that follows a colony of penguins from dawn to dusk. We especially like the silly illustrations of penguins doing laundry, bathing, and making art!!!
