When you’re in a pinch with the kids, no-bake desserts can be the solution! These No-Bake Sheep Animal Cookies are super easy and fun to make!
No-Bake Sheep Grahams
These adorable No-Bake Sheep Grahams are a great recipe for little lunch boxes, kid parties, school snack, or fans of Shaun the Sheep! Children will love these as quick no-bake treats or no-bake desserts and want to share them with their friends!
When you think of homemade animal crackers or cookie recipes, it may immediately bring to mind the standard box of circus animals. The ones that you could bake at home with all purpose flour, vanilla extract, and more, that would end up in different animal shapes. Well, this homemade version is a little bit different and WAY easier.
These animal crackers make for a great treat. There is no pulling out the hand mixer, using a rolling pin, or sitting around waiting for the bake time to finish. This easy recipe calls for ingredients that you can keep in your cupboards and pull out any time.
This easy animal cracker recipe is a fun way for teaching your child about the letter “S” (or “L” for lamb), doing an edible craft that will leave you with something for snack time, or just trying out different cookies from your regular animal cracker recipe.
In addition to children’s events, these would be fun for baby showers or a birthday party. Add a few rainbow sprinkles and you’ve got party sheep!
- If you can’t find candy melts, you can use three dark chocolate chips or a chocolate chunk. Slice the chocolate chunk to look like the candy melt nose.
- Once you slice all of the ingredients for these no-bake snacks, you can let all of your young chefs put them together. Even the littlest children can help and they’re a great way to get the whole family involved in a fun activity.
No-Bake Sheep Animal Cookies Recipe
How To Make:
Clear off a work surface that you can sit at in the kitchen or at the dining room table.
Cut a large handful of mini marshmallows in half using the kitchen scissors and set aside. You want a small size marshmallow that is even smaller than the mini.
Frost each graham cracker square with white frosting. I use a knife or spoon to spread it on, but you can also put the frosting in a plastic bag and cut off the tip if you’d prefer to frost that way.
If you want to make your sheep a “black sheep” or a “brown sheep,” you could add a little food coloring to the frosting before spreading it onto each cracker.
Use some kitchen scissors to gently snip the edges of the black candy melts making almost a triangle shape. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but as close as you can. Place the triangle on the graham cracker to form the sheep’s head.
Use a toothpick or fork tine to add a small dab of frosting (your “glue”) to the back of the sheep’s eyes. Place the eyes on the sheep’s head (as shown in photos).
Lastly, take the halved mini marshmallows and place them around the sheep’s head as shown in the photos. Voila! Sheep Grahams!
For storage, keep these on a plate, cookie sheet, or wire rack and cover them in plastic wrap. You can also keep them in an airtight container, but be sure that they are at room temperature or in the refrigerator or your frosted animal cookies could melt.
What Can I Do If I Don’t Have Frosting For These Animal Cookies?
If you don’t have frosting on hand and don’t want to run to the grocery store, take some white chocolate chips and melt them in a medium bowl in the microwave in 30 second increments until they are melted.
You can use the melted white chocolate as your “glue,” but I highly recommend placing them on prepared baking sheets with pieces of parchment paper or wax paper to allow them to cool.
Because the chips will be warm, they could potentially soften your graham crackers. Keeping them on the paper will allow them to stay sturdy while they dry.
If you don’t have white chips or frosting, consider using peanut butter instead. Either way, these no-bake cookies will satisfy any sweet tooth.
Can I Use Large Marshmallows If I Don’t Have Small Marshmallows?
Yes! Take a large marshmallow and a pair of kitchen shears. Slice your regular marshmallow into about twelve pieces.
Place each small marshmallow on the graham crackers to create your little guys and you’re good to go. You’ll want to do this for each of the sheep heads.
