We came up with these adorable monkeys for my 5 year old preschool class. We used mini chocolate moon pies, vanilla wafers, mini vanilla wafers, mini chocolate chips, edible eye balls, chocolate cookie frosting, and lollipop sticks.
We attached our regular sized vanilla wafers to the moon pie with chocolate frosting for the nose. We attached the mini wafers with the frosting for the ears. We cut the wafer on the edge just a bit to give it a straight edge. We attached our edible eye balls with the frosting. We then attached our mini chocolate chips for the nostrils and piped on the mouth with the frosting. Pop it on a stick and there you go!
The kids fell in love with these and I fell in love with how easy they are! These are great to transfer to parties, etc… They hold up very well and you can do lots of them without spending several hours to do it!
