- 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips
- 6 large marshmallows
- Finely shredded coconut
- Chocolate sandwich cookie (we used a mini moon pie. Chocolate sandwich cookies dipped in melted chocolate would work well, too)
- 6 cashews
For each bird, drop a large marshmallow into the melted chocolate, using a spatula to coat it well. Remove the marshmallow from the chocolate and roll it in finely shredded coconut, leaving one end uncovered. Immediately set the marshmallow, coconut free end down, atop a mini Moon Pie. Let the chocolate set a bit, and then use a toothpick to make a hole in the side of the marshmallow and insert a cashew for a beak. Finally, add black decorators' gel eyes. Makes half a dozen.
