Spaghetti tacos? Of course! It doesn’t get much more kid friendly than that! When I was a child, “kid friendly” meant a smaller portion of what Mom & Dad were having. Not today though. There seems to be an entire sub culture of recipes geared at just the young (not usually just the young at heart).
Just because they are young, doesn’t mean they can’t eat healthy. Spaghetti tacos at our house feature whole wheat spaghetti, ground corn taco shells, and fresh tomato sauce. And cheese of course. Lots of cheese. Watch for a new Kid Friendly recipe every Wacky Wednesday. Same bat channel, same bat time. Or something like that.
OAE (Oh, and enjoy)
24 Oreo Double Stuff cookies
12 miniature peanut butter cups
12 malted milk balls
1 cup candy corn
4 ounces chocolate frosting
4 ounces white frosting
red food coloring
Place one Oreo cookie as the base. Put one teaspoon of chocolate frosting on top.
Place one small peanut butter cup on it’s side so that the top and bottom are perpendicular to the base — and stuck in the frosting. Place a teaspoon of chocolate frosting on the top(widest part) of the p-butter cup.
For the second cookie. Stick some candy corn into the Oreo ‘stuff’ along one edge for the feathers — pointy side down. They should fan out around the edge. If you have trouble doing this, you can help them stick with some white frosting.
Place this second Oreo cookie (the tail) on it’s edge and sticking to a dab of brown frosting on the back of the peanut butter cup.
Place a dab of chocolate frosting on top of the peanut butter up (for the head). Place a malted milk ball on top for the head.
Take a small amount of the white frosting in a separate dish. Mix in red food coloring.
Use a toothpick with the white and red colors to place eyes, and wattle. You can pinch off the small pointy top of a candy corn and dip it in brown frosting for the beak.
Your turkey is complete!
