4th of July Recipes

The 4th of July will be here before we know it.  I got my Family Fun magazine yesterday, which showed lots of neat 4th of July crafts and recipes.  I thought I would share a few with you today.

Edible Eagles (for a picture of the eagles, click the Family Fun link here.)

1/4 cup of white chocolate chips
6 large marshmallows
Finely shredded coconut
Chocolate sandwich cookie (we used a chocolate-covered Oreo)
6 Cashews
Black decorators' gel

Melt 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips according to the package directions. For each bird, drop a large marshmallow into the melted chocolate, using a spatula to coat it well. Remove the marshmallow from the chocolate and roll it in finely shredded coconut, leaving one end uncovered.

Immediately set the marshmallow, coconut free end down, atop a chocolate sandwich cookie. Let the chocolate set a bit, then use a toothpick to make a hole in the side of the marshmallow and insert a cashew for a beak.  Finally, add black decorators' gel eyes.

Family Fun also has an eagle handprint t-shirt.  Here's the link for the directions:
