Cookie & Candy Penguins
30 mins (prep 30)
8 ingredients
6 servings
Last year, I prepared Perky Penguins and thought they were too cute for a winter season treat, especially for little kids and kids-at-heart. However, I found them to be a bit time consuming with the multiple drying times needed. After making and enjoying Oreo Cookie Turkeys for Thanksgiving this year, I made some changes to the penguins to make them quicker to make - I got all six done in about 30 minutes. As an added bonus, for small crowds like mine, they now use more of the same ingredients as the turkeys, so I can actually use up those ingredients between Thanksgiving and Christmas... after getting the candy corn on sale after Halloween! The shorter work time also helps to prevent the marshmallows from drying out.
