So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get cooking with Teddy Bears!
- 1 box Duncan Hines Chocolate Brownie Mix
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 large egg
- 2 tsp water
- Peanut halves (can be substituted with banana chips, white chocolate chips, etc.)
- White chocolate kisses or rounds
- Cookie sheet
- Thin metal spatula
- Wire rack
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Next, have the children stick the butter into a microwaveable cup and melt it in the microwave oven.
Then, help the children break an egg into the butter mixture, and stir.
As the children are stirring, have them mix in 2 tsp of water to the egg and butter mixture.
Put the Duncan Hines Chocolate Brownie Mix into a mixing bowl
Using a fork, add the egg and butter to the Duncan Hines mix and keep stirring until the mixture forms into a stiff dough.
When the dough is ready, have the children take a tablespoon of dough and roll it into a cookie ball.
Then, have the children place the cookie ball on a cookie sheet and flatten the cookie ball down just a bit.
After that, have the children press the white chocolate round into the center of the cookie.
Once done, have the children press four peanut halves, split sides down, into the top edge of each cookie, forming the bear claws.
When all the Bear Claw Cookies are ready for baking, bake for 10 minutes or until the edges are set.
Cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheet.
These Bear Claw Cookies are the perfect snack for a classroom Bear-theme unit or a kids Bear-theme birthday party.
Now, all that’s left to do is munch away and eat!
