Dinosaur Snacks: A Yummy (and Icky) Treat!

I found this idea in an issue of the Mailbox magazine from, umm...1992!! 

These dino snacks are a fun treat!  My girls ate this up (literally and figuratively).  They really believed I was mixing up these "dinosaur" ingredients!!  Make sure to say things like "Let's mix the dirt in with the crushed bones!"  Your kiddos will love it! 

4 tablespoons cocoa (DIRT)
2 cups sugar (CRUSHED BONES)
1 stick margarine or butter (FAT)
1/2 cup milk colored with green food coloring (SWAMP WATER)
1 cup peanut butter (DEAD BUGS)
3 cups oatmeal (DRIED GRASS)

1)  Boil DIRT, CRUSHED BONES, FAT, and SWAMP WATER.  Let boil for 1 minute.  Add DEAD BUGS and DEAD GRASS.  Stir.

2)  Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper.  Allow to cool. 

Yes, these are just no-bake cookies, so you can substitute your favorite recipe!
