Have you been asked to bring a moose themed snack to your children’s school? Perhaps your children are enamored with moose and you want to surprise them with an afterschool treat. Either way, you may want to consider whipping up one of the following edibles:
If you want to give the kids a treat that is sure to make them giggle, I’d recommend filling decorative snack bags with homemade moose poop. The poop is nothing more than carob coated raisins. In order to assemble the snack, you’ll need resealable plastic bags, moose poop stickers and carob coated raisins. The bags are often available for purchase through discount and major grocery stores. You can make the stickers yourself by utilizing the moose clip art available on the Classroom Clipart website. Of course you’ll also need a packet of sticker paper and access to a computer. Instructions for making basic stickers should be posted on the sticker paper’s packaging. The carob coated raisins should be available for purchase through specialty retailers like Sweet as Fudge. Once you have all of those items on hand, slap a homemade moose poop sticker onto the snack bag. Then fill the bag with the carob coated raisins. That’s all that there is to it.
Carob Coated Antlers
Speaking of carob, you may want to think about making moose antlers with various sized pretzel rods. All you need to do is melt the carob chips in a double boiler. Next, dip the pretzels into it. Once the pretzels are coated with carob, place them onto a sheet of waxed paper in the shape of moose antlers. I typically use one large pretzel rod for the base of the moose’s antler. Then I’ll attach pretzel nuggets to one side of the rod with melted carob. Afterward, I’ll place the pretzels into the refrigerator until the carob hardens. On average, it will take 10 minutes or less for that to occur. Once the carob hardens, remove the moose antlers from the fridge and give them to the kids.
Apple Butter Moose
Moose shaped toast slathered with apple butter would make cute and tasty snacks too. In order to make the animal inspired treats, you’ll need to purchase a moose cookie cutter and a jar of apple butter. You can typically purchase the cookie cutters through specialty stores and the apple butter at the supermarket. When you’re ready to make the snack, use the cutter to make moose shaped pieces of bread. Then toast the bread and cover each piece with apple butter.
Do your children like gummy fruits? If so, you may want to invest in a box of Froose. They are moose shaped gummy candies that come in various flavors. You can generally purchase a box of the treats through specialty stores. Flavors to consider utilizing are tropical blend and berry blast.
Lastly, you could always serve the kids a moose shaped veggie pizza. After all, moose are known to eat plants. If you have never made veggie pizza before, you can find recipes for various versions of the dish posted on the Eating Well website. To make the dish, just follow the recipe of your choice and use a moose shaped cookie cutter to make the pizza’s crust.
