Dr. Seuss Green Eggs and Ham Cookies...Easy!


We came up with these Green Eggs and Ham Cookies today to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss this week!  We wanted to come up with something very easy to make for class parties or just a quick Dr. Seuss snack to make the kids for a fun after school treat!

Green Eggs and Ham Cookies

Any cookie recipe or pre-made cookie mix (we like Pillsbury)
White Cookie Frosting (we like Betty Crocker)
Green & Vanilla Tootsie Rolls
Black Edible Marker (Wilton)

Frost the cookies with the white frosting.  Place a vanilla Tootsie Roll in the microwave for 7 seconds.  Cut it in  half using kitchen scissors. Then cut off 2 very small pieces for the end of the ham and set aside.  Flatten out the 2 vanilla Tootsie Rolls into a egg shape.  Microwave the green Tootsie Roll for 7 seconds and cut off the end. Shape the cut off end piece and shape it into a small circle. Place in the middle of the Tootsie egg.  Shape the rest of the green Tootsie Roll into a ham. Press the small vanilla pieces that you reserved in the middle on the end to look like bone.  We used black edible marker on the outside for the details.

“I do not like green eggs and ham I do not like them Sam-I-Am.”


Super easy right?!!  My boys loved these and I am sure your kids will too!!

  2. What a cute idea! The idea of real Green Eggs and Ham is a bit unsettling. Cookies are the way to go. Thanks so much for sharing! Have a wonderful day!
