Food Glorious Food - Cat in the Hat Hats

I may not eat green eggs and ham. But I will eat sweets. It's part of who I am.

Did you know that Dr. Seuss' birthday was March 2nd. Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

My son's pre-k class is celebrating Dr. Seuss all month and on his snack day this week I chose to incorporate the Dr. Seuss theme.
I found the idea for this snack at Jill's site, Meet the Dubiens. She is so, so clever.

I did prepare my Cat Hats a bit differently then Jill. But both ways are quite easy. And it was amazing 
how excited the kids were about these sweet treats.

To make, first dip the bottom third of your marshmallow into water. Then swirl into the red sugar.

Let the marshmallow set while you dip and sugar your other marshmallows.

Now, dip the top third of your marshmallow in the water and swirl this end in the sugar.
Aaahhh, stripes.

Remove one chocolate cookie side from an Oreo. Gently scrape the creamy middle with a fork.
I found that this helps the frosting and marshmallow adhere to the cookie better.

Spread on a little smear of frosting. Plop on your decorated marshmallow.

And look what you have. A whole slew of Cat Hats.
Pretty darn cute!

Thanks for a great idea Jill!
