No Bake Marshmallow Lamb Cookies

While flipping through a magazine a while back, I saw some really cute lamb cookies made with meringue.  I am quite aware of my shortcomings in the kitchen, and so I know that meringue is something that I should never even think about baking...so I felt a little sad that the cute little cookies were not in my future until last weekend, when I was looking through the pantry and spotted some graham crackers and mini marshmallows.
Hello, lamb cookies....
No bake "anything" is the perfect match for me!

All the ingredients were already in my kitchen:

*Graham Crackers
*Mini Marshmallows
*1 T Confectioners Sugar (and a drop of milk to make icing)
*Blueberry Craisins (although raisins should work fine)
*Black edible pen



To get the shape below, cut the graham cracker gently in a sawing motion with a serrated knife


The icing acts like glue so that the marshmallows stick to the graham cracker
Fill the graham cracker with the marshmallows...in terms of number or order...whatever works is my style, I just made sure the marshmallows slightly overlapped the edge.


Microwave for approximately 10 seconds on high...the marshmallows should be just slightly puffed up and look like this...


Gently push the marshmallows together and flatten slightly...
Becareful because they could be very hot.
Add your blueberry craisin and draw in an eye and maybe a smile :)



The kids absolutely loved these and thought that the blueberry craisin was a perfect complement to the overall taste.  However, after eating about three of them, one of my children remarked:  "Mom, these are SO GOOD...what are they?  Little Fishies?

So much for my little spring lambs...but I guess at least they tasted good ;)

  20. I love the story about your kids thinking these were fishes, but honestly they do look like lambs to me! I think these are a great idea for Easter, and kids could help with them too (except the bit when the marshmallows are hot of course). They also sound very yummy too. Thank you for sharing your Lamb Cookies with The Hearth and Soul Blog Hop.

  39. I love the little lambs! Perhaps some pretzel-stick legs would have helped make them look more like lambs.
