York Peppermint Patty Penguin Pops!

These York Peppermint Patty Penguin Pops take minutes to make & kids love them!

There are so many things going on this time of year and we love to create short cuts with making fun treats. We thought it would be cute to make penguins from York peppermint patties. We love how they turned out and they were so easy to make! No frosting involved!!

Peppermint Penguin Pops

York peppermint patties
Yellow Starburst
Edible Eyes
Lollipop Sticks
Decorative Straws

We just cut a penguin shape out of our peppermint patty with a knife…almost like a heart shape. We attached a thin red ribbon on the top of the lollipop stick and wrapped it around the stick to look like a candy cane. We pushed the patty onto the stick. We put 1 Starburst in the microwave on high for 8 seconds. Just roll it out with a rolling pin or press with your fingers. Cut out the beak and feet with a knife. Just press the beak and feet in the white cut out part of the patty. Press the edible eyes on and that is it! Everything will stick perfectly!

Here is my 8 year old with his Peppermint Penguin Pop!

these are darling my niece is obssesed with penguins right now I'd love it if you would add them to my What We Wore and Made link party over at

Super cute!

I am almost crying right now trying to do these with my daughter and son for their classes tomorrow. When I cut the chocolate, it just breaks into tiny pieces and when I try to scoop it out, it's just mushing into the white stuff and making a tan, mushy, bumpy face for the penguin. I'm stopping while I'm ahead and going on to my other treats with more realistic goals.

Super cute! Such a great idea!

so cute!!

Thanks for linking up, I featured this post in my wrap up

Have a Merry Christmas!

What a great idea, I have been looking for cute penguin themed food. The GS Cookie theme animal for 2012 is a penguin and to kick off our cookie sale, I am going to make these for my scouts or maybe let them make them at our Jan campout. We alway camp just before the sale starts, we earn the cookie badges and do activities to prepare to have the best cookie sale. Plus the penguin goes with a winter camp theme too! Thanks for the idea!
