Raley and Clay have a book called Gross Out! Animals That Do Disgusting Things. It talks about different kinds of bugs and other creatures who are gross or do gross things. At the back of the book is a recipe for these treats. We thought they looked fun and it became our project for the last day of summer before school started back up. So I rounded up my sous chefs...
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp cocoa
1/4 cup chunky peanut butter
1 1/2 cups oats (not instant)
1/2 cup pretzel sticks (broken into small pieces to look like bones)
1/4 cup coconut flakes (fur) (optional)
Mix the butter, sugar, milk,, and cocoa in a medium saucepan.
Heat the pan on medium high and stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until smooth.
