So you may or may not know that I have a slight obsession with Penguins 🐧
Okay so that may be a slight understatement…you know it’s bad when your team at work buy you a penguin encounter and penguin jewellery for your birthday – best gifts EVER by the way!
So when I saw this idea on Pinterest I just could not resist. The only thing is they are way too cute to eat!
Fun and easy to make and a perfect recipe for the children to get involved. A delicious treat on their own or use them to decorate your favourite cupcake recipe. I made them for my Oreo Peanut Butter Cupcakes, check out the recipe here.
You will need…
A pack of Oreos
80g Icing sugar
Orange sugar paste
Dark food colouring
How to assemble…
First start with a plain Oreo
Mix the icing sugar with approx. 4-5 tsps of water until you have a thick but spreadable consistency. Spread the icing on the bottom half of the Oreo in a cashew like shape.
Now take a small piece of the orange sugar paste and flatten it out. Using a knife cut a small triangle shape. Place the triangle in the centre bottom of the Oreo.
Finally dip the end of the cocktail stick into the food colouring (you’ll only need a tiny bit) and add two eyes.
Now isn’t that the cutest sweet treat EVER!
