Don’t judge. Just don’t.
Half a bag of marshmallows and way too many chocolate chips later, I have six psychotic looking hedgehogs…. or maybe brown snails. Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer anyone? The one on the left reminds me of one of the Simpsons.
Whatever. Apparently they still taste good.
These looked a heck of a lot cuter on the website where I found the recipe. My candy eyes and red noses give the hedgies an… interesting look. The one on the right isn’t too bad, though. A little flat, but I’ll take it. This was a spur of the moment idea, so I didn’t have all the ingrediants I needed. See those little chocolate sprinkles on top? Appreciate them, ’cause I WORKED for those suckers.
I picked every single one of them out of that bottle of Halloween sprinkles. Don’t worry, I washed my hands.
These will definitely be made again sometime. Hopefully I’ll remember to buy a bottle of brown sprinkles beforehand, and forgo the candy eyes.
I made these in honor of my former teacher’s pet hedgehog, Sir Wedgebert. A hedgehog as a pet? So cool!
