I was going to make chick cupcakes, but 5 year olds and cupcakes are messy. I felt sorry for the teacher and just made chick cookies in order to alleviate some of the mess.
I simply frosted some sugar cookies and covered them with yellow, dyed, sweetened, shredded coconut. I put on two chocolate chips for eyes and added orange gummy candies cut into beaks. Easy and cute!
The kids in the class were a little slow to dig in, and I finally realized, when one boy spoke up, they thought I had put shredded cheese on the cookies! I wouldn't eat that either!
They finally ate the cookies once I promised them I did not use cheese.
Happy birthday, Carter and baby chicks!
