When I found out that September 9, 2020 is National Teddy Bear Day, my initial plan was to create a cute teddy bear craft. But the girls just started school and they have been wanting to help me make a new yummy treat, so we decided to create edible teddy bears. Best idea ever.

Looking for a fun activity to do with the kids? These adorable teddy bear cookie treats are easy to make and sure to be a hit!

 

The steps are pretty easy to follow (I’ll write them out in the recipe below). For now, let’s talk about ingredients.

What You’ll Need

You’ll want to purchase some sort of chocolate covered cookies. I chose fudge covered OREOs and fudge covered Nutter Butter, because those are a favorite around here. Just slice them in half (per the steps photo), through the cream center. For the ears, I used the mini fudge covered OREO’s. They were the perfect size once I chopped those in half. 

For the nose, I used white chocolate melts. You will find that they have a little peak on the top. I just shaved each peak off with a knife which left a flat surface to add the m&m. Speaking of m&m’s, I accidentally bought the fun size pack and wound up having to open up 7 or 8 fun sized pack because there were literally no brown m&m’s in any of the bags. What’s up with that? 

For the eyes, I used these adorable candy eyeballs that I had on hand from various other projects. My youngest LOVES them and looks forward to us creating things like this because she can’t wait to eat the eyes. 

And finally, you’ll want to stick each on with some melted white chocolate melts. You only need 3 or 4. I stick them in a tiny microwave safe bowl and heat them for 30 seconds. I stir with a toothpick and use the toothpick to apply the melted chocolate like glue. It helps to stick each piece together. If it starts to harden, just stick it back in the microwave for 15-20 seconds again.

Want Your Teddy Bears on a Stick?

While we were making these adorable little Teddy Bear cookie treats, Super Dad suggested that we put them on sticks so that it’s easier for the kids to carry. Honestly, I usually tend to brush off his ideas, but this time I was impressed. Luckily I had 6 popsicle sticks in my craft bin so we made half on a stick and half off. 

My 7 year old preferred the stick, so if you are making this for the younger ones, that might be the way to go. Though the sticks are totally optional! If you do decide to put your Teddy Bear cookies on a stick, you’ll want to do that after you stick on the ears. I just put a little bit of melted chocolate on the back and front of the top of the stick and stuck it inside before I put the top of the bear’s head on. Worked perfectly!

How to Make Teddy Bear Cookie Treats


  • Author: Heather l The Super Mom Life

Description

Adorable little teddy bear treats that you can make out of cookies and candies. Your kids will love them! Perfect for National Teddy Bear Day.



Instructions

  • Cut the larger cookies through the creamy center. You’ll wind up with 2 round pieces. The flat piece will be the back and the rounded top part of the cookie will be your Teddy Bear’s face.
  • Cut the mini cookies in half so that you wind up with two semi-circles. These will be your ears.
  • Take 3-4 white chocolate melts and put them in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir with a toothpick.
  • Using the toothpick, add the melted white chocolate to the back of each ear. Stick to the top of the flatter cookie circle.
  • Add melted white chocolate to the bottom of the same circle. You can also add some to the very bottom of the ears. You’ll want melted chocolate in the spots where the top piece meets the bottom piece. This will ensure that the cookie stays together.
  • If you are adding a stick, add some the melted white chocolate to the top of the stick (in the back). Press the stick down into the cream center of the cookie. You can also add some melted chocolate to the top part of the stick that will come in contact with the top of your cookie.
  • Press the top piece onto the ears and bottom of the cookie. It will be at a bit of a slant.
  • If your white chocolate melts have a peak on the top, shave that off with a knife so that it has a flat surface. Using melted white chocolate, stick the white chocolate melt to the bottom center of the Teddy Bear’s face.
  • Using melted white chocolate, stick an m&m to the white chocolate. This is your Teddy Bear’s nose.
  • Using melted white chocolate, stick the two candy eyes on top of the white chocolate piece.

These teddy bear cookie treats are super easy to make and are seriously the cutest! The kids will love them!
