I'm Eating Eagle For The 4th Of July - What Are you Serving?

This 4th of July holiday I've decided to change things up a bit. No burgers, hot dogs or ribs. Anyone canI'm Eating An Eagle For The 4th Of July - What Are you Serving? offer those. Instead, my guests are going to be served something a bit more exotic... Bald Eagles!

Send your family's taste buds soaring with a nest of these bald eagle treats. To make half a dozen, follow the recipe below. 

Edible Bald Eagles


  • 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips
  • 6 large marshmallows
  • Finely shredded coconut
  • Chocolate sandwich cookie (we used a chocolate-covered Oreo)
  • 6 Cashews
  • Black decorators' gel 


  1. Melt 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips according to the package directions.
  2. For each bird, drop a large marshmallow into the melted chocolate chips, using a spatula to coat it well.
  3. Remove the marshmallow from the white chocolate and roll it in finely shredded coconut, leaving one end uncovered.
  4. Immediately set the marshmallow, coconut free end down, atop a chocolate sandwich cookie.
  5. Let the chocolate set a bit, then use a toothpick to make a hole in the side of the marshmallow and insert a cashew for a beak.
  6. Finally, add black decorators' gel eyes.

Have a happy and safe Fourth of July!

Those eagle heads are so great!  They would be a huge hit at a big gathering, plus a fun thing to make with a group of kids.  But no time this year... so I'm sticking with Apple Pie & French Vanilla.  Happy 4th!
