Look what I found! Have you ever seen this book?
Its SO incredibly cute!
The Pigeon finds a Hot Dog is an adorable children's story about sharing. The author, Mo Willems, has six Emmy Awards for his writing on Sesame Street. I adore this quirky book so much that it inspired me to make pigeons for this week's Sweet Sunday Snack.
*I will admit: this little confectionery adventure did not turn out like I imagined it would, but its still pretty cute... and it tastes good.
To make these happy hot dog loving pigeons, I melted Rolos in the microwave for feet and popped in two pretzel legs.
Then I dipped the other ends of the pretzels in chocolate to attach them to Peep bodies.
First, I tried to use a dot of cream cheese frosting for the big eyes, but it melted.
So I found these big candy eyes made by Wilton for cake decorating, and they look pretty good: much better than the melted frosting.
Now all this little guy needs is a hot dog...
