How to Make Fun Little Fox Cookies with Video
Have you ever seen an adorable little fox? I honestly think adorable isn’t a strong enough word because these creatures are so dang cute they steal your heart instantly. They’ll also steal your chickens but thats not what were going to talk about today. When you imagine a fox, think about the cute little nose, the orange and white fluffy tails and don’t even get me started on those big orange eyes. Doesn’t it make you want to make fun little fox cookies right now? Well grab some butter and let’s get started!
Our fox isn’t going to have big orange eyes but I think you’ll like it almost as much as the real thing. Maybe not but I can promise you these fox cookies will taste way better than a real fox. Not that I would ever eat a real fox but you know what I mean.

The few times I’ve seen them I just stand still and stare as if I’ve seen something magical because the truth is they are. They have a grace about them thats difficult to describe. Remember to eat some fun little fox cookies while you look for them!
I love them!!! I never thought I’d want to make fox cookies but you have inspired me to try!
I hope you do make them Kathy! If ya do, send me a picture! 😉
You’re right, Lisa. Your cookies and real foxes are stinkin’ adorable! We were lucky enough to have a mama fox live in our yard for a while, but she has since moved on and we saw her earlier this summer with a little one following her. We may not always “see” her, but we “hear” her quite often….no mistaking the call of a fox…sounds like a woman screaming. A little unnerving until you realize that it’s just a fox. 🙂
Awe! A baby fox Janis!!! They are adorable! Have you ever thought of making baby fox cookies?
Cute, cute, cute!
I made these! They don’t look as professional as yours, obviously, but they turned out super cute! I added little Santa hats to make them Christmas-y. I hope they help me win my cookie exchange competition!
I’m so happy you made them!!!! Can I see a picture?
