The 4th of July is just around the corner and we’re all amping up for a celebration! Whether a barbecue or a picnic is in the works, dessert is foremost on my mind and this year I have the cutest, no-bake idea for you with these Marshmallow Bald Eagles! Grab the kids and make a batch of these just in time to celebrate the birth of our great nation.
Marshmallow Bald Eagles
Makes: 1 dozen
Prep: 15 mins
1 cup milk or dark chocolate, melted
12 jumbo marshmallows
1/4 cup vanilla icing
1/2 cup shredded coconut
24 mini chocolate chips
12 whole cashews or yellow/orange candies (like M&Ms or Reeses Pieces)
Melt chocolate chips in 30-second bursts in the mic.
Dip each cookie into the melted chocolate and coat completely.
Pierce each marshmallow with a toothpick, somewhere toward the top.
Cover each marshmallow in icing and dip into a bowl of shredded coconut.
Insert a cashew or candy into the hole for the beak.
Add two mini chocolate chips for eyes.
Set marshmallow head onto a chocolate-covered cookie.
Repeat, then transfer these cuties to the fridge for 15 mins to harden.
