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
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!

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!
Super cute! Such a great idea!
Oh no! We did not have this problem. We just cut the top off with a knife very carefully. If you already bought everything and it's not working for you maybe you could just add white frosting on the top. That would look good!
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.
Oh my goodness…these guys are outrageously adorable! So glad I was your "neighbor" at the Too Cute Tuesday linky at Funky Polkadot Giraffe!
