Pearly Bites

may include

IMG_0256

This idea was borrowed and tested from the August FamilyFun Magazine’s Treat Of The Month.  The sweet “under the sea style snacks”  are perfect to serve up at beached themed parties, picnics, or summer gatherings.  The cute “Pearly Bites” are not the most nutritional snack to let your children devour, but they are fun to make and the kids love them.

The ingredients you will need to make each oyster  are pink frosting, small round wafer cookies, yogurt-covered raisins, white frosting, toothpick, and food coloring for adding the pupils.

To prepare, spread a layer of pink frosting (I used Pillsbury Whipped Supreme Strawberry Frosting) to the bottom of the small wafer cookie, then press a yogurt-covered raisin on the top toward the edge.  Place another cookie as shown, making sure one edge is in the frosting to hold it together.  Dab on the white frosting for the eyes.  Next, use a toothpick dipped in the food coloring to add the pupils.

    Hi! The recipes here are great. Thanks for having this site. I found your site while looking for another one on about.com. I don’t have time to read everything right now, but I have bookmarked this site and will come back very soon to see what’s new. I love reading about cooking, it is my favorite past-time. I can’t wait to try them out on my family. They think I’m crazy (and maybe they are right lol) when they see me at work in the kitchen. Click here if you’d like to check out my site. Thanks again – great site!
