Bald Eagle Cookie Bar

This is a quick decorating idea I came up with that looks like a Bald Eagle! It was actually serendipitious. I was experimenting and thought I was going to make a snowman, but the mini M&M I used really looked like a beak and it really looks like a cute Bald Eagle. Haha! :)

I used an Easy Sugar Cookie Bar recipe from upstateramblings.com as the base. Check out that post.

What I used (per Bald Eagle):

- Cookie bar (~3" x 1")

- White chocolate (melted)

- 1 orange mini M&M (beak)

- Black gel food coloring (eyes)

(Note: You could try melted dark chocolate for the eyes, but it may harden while you are painting.)

- Toothpick

You could try another flavor if you would like or store bought wafer cookies or Milanos or other cookies of a rectangular or oval shape. Or maybe even a chocolate bar for the body of the Bald Eagle.

Melt chocolate on double boiler or in the microwave on 50% power / defrost setting in 30-second or 15-second intervals.

Cover or dip about ~1" or so of the cookie with white chocolate.

I put a little gel food coloring on some parchment paper (like a painter's palette). :)

I use a toothpick as a little paintbrush to make the eyes. Then I put the orange mini M&M on sideways as a beak. :)

Then just put in the fridge to set and harden for at least 15 min. That's it!

So cute! Give it a try! We are good at this!
