There are so many things going on this time of year and we love to create short cuts with making fun treats. We thought it would be cute to make penguins from York peppermint patties. We love how they turned out and they were so easy to make! No frosting involved!!
We used York peppermint patties, yellow Starburst, edible eyes, lollipop sticks, and red ribbon.
We just cut a penguin shape out of our peppermint patty with a knife...almost like a heart shape. We attached a thin red ribbon on the top of the lollipop stick and wrapped it around the stick to look like a candy cane. We pushed the patty onto the stick. We put 1 Starburst in the microwave on high for 8 seconds. Just roll it out with a rolling pin or press with your fingers. Cut out the beak and feet with a knife. Just press the beak and feet in the white cut out part of the patty. Press the edible eyes on and that is it! Everything will stick perfectly!
Here is my 8 year old with his Peppermint Penguin Pop!
