St. Agnes Cheerios lambs

It's completely okay to giggle at these lambs- we aren't professional chefs here in momma's kitchen. We had fun making them though, and they do taste very very good. Agnes means lamb...yes yes, we all know that Shannon...okay that was for the non-Catholics.

Do what you would do to make some Rice Krispie treats- except with Cheerios. I used whole grain- there healthy- yea like that matters. You also need Almond Bark, pretzels, toothpicks and yogurt covered raisins.

 plops of lamb's bodies

Make some legs with white chocolate and pretzels.

 I think depending on how big your Lambs' body is, your pretzel legs will need to be broken in half.  They will break in half on the cookie sheet anyway just because they stick to the cookie sheet while they dry.

Make a lamb body (we sprayed out hands with PAM) to keep the melted marshmallow from sticking to us.

Shove their poor little broken lamby pretzel legs into the body.  I know some of you would be worried about "oh they aren't the same length, they won't stand."  They do, all mine stood up, so don't feel bad if they aren't perfect, especially since you probably will be working with a 6, 5 and 2 year old. Squeeze that ball of goo back together if it feels loose, it will stick.

Last take the tooth pick (you may need to cut it down) and shove a white yogurt covered raisin on the end. Then push that sucker into the body of the lamb.

You could take this further and make eyes for them- I was ready to be done with them. We dripped the rest of the melted white chocolate across their backs. You could roll them in the white chocolate or coconut, whatever you have!

Sancta Agnes, Ora Pro Nobis!
