UNDER THE SEA COOKIES

My kids have always been fascinated with ocean creatures, so when we found out the movie Finding Dory hits theaters tomorrow, then Discovery Channel’s Shark Week is 10 days later, well, that calls for some celebrating! We made these cute “Under the Sea” Cookies that are just as fun to make as they are to eat. Seriously. I mean, you get to eat chocolate rocks! My kids were elated. Rocks! They look like the real thing but they’re chocolate! Enjoy.

Under the Sea Fish Cookies ~ Shark Cookies - Butter With A Side of BreadUnder the Sea Cookies

  • Sugar cookies, baked  and cooled*
  • vanilla buttercream frosting, colored blue
  • chocolate rocks
  • Swedish fish/ blue shark gummy candies
  • Dory fish candy {I found ours at Michael’s craft store}
  • 1 crushed graham cracker

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting: Whisk ½ cup butter with an electric mixer for 1 minute. Add 3 cups of powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time. Add in 1 tsp vanilla and 2 TBSP milk. Mix until smooth. I added 20 drops of blue food coloring.

Spread frosting on cooled cookies. Arrange a few chocolate rocks near the bottom. Sprinkle a little crushed graham cracker over and around the rocks, trying to stick to the bottom of the cookie. Place 1 shark gummy and/or Swedish fish on each cookie, as well as a Dory fish candy and a few other tiny fishy candies.

That’s it! Enjoy your under the sea dessert!

I used a Krusteaz mix {Butter Sugar Cookies} because I love how they taste and they’re super simple to make! No need to roll and cut, just scoop them out with a small cookie scoop and back them.
