Chocolate Moose the Cookie Way!

Chocolate moose Cookies | The Bearfoot Baker

I don’t get invited to parties a lot but, when I do, I take dessert! I thought I would make a Chocolate Moose to take to a Christmas Party! I am a bit of a prankster sometimes and it gets me into trouble. What goes around comes around so I try to keep that in mind. I don’t think this prank will make anyone want to ants in my bed or anything. What do you think?

Chocolate Moose thebearfootbaker.comWell, what do you expect from a cookie person! Maybe one day I will make a real chocolate moose but for now, this is my kinda moose!

Supplies for Chocolate Moose:

Brown 15 Second Icing
Tan 15 Second Icing
