Now that Autumn is here, and
the air is crisp wouldn’t it be fun to bake these awesome Hedgehog Cookies with
your kids on Saturday afternoon just before you sit down as a family to watch
some Classic Nickelodeon?
These fun and friendly cookies are brought to you by Ali Fedotowsky-Manno who
baked them on the Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family. They are SOOO adorable,
but do you know why I love them so much? They remind me of my favorite Pinwheel
Cartoon Emily (Emilie) by Domitillede Pressensè. Emily had a pet hedgehog named
Humphrey and I these cookies are as cute as he was.
So, grab your kids, a few
ingredients and make these cute cookies and then turn on some good
old-fashioned, Classic Nickelodeon!

small bowl, cream butter and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Beat

to form a face. Repeat. Place 2 in. apart on a greased baking sheet.

until lightly browned. Let stand 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to
3) In a microwave, melt
chocolate; stir until smooth. Holding a hedgehog cookie by the nose, spoon
chocolate over the back (leave the face uncovered). Allow excess to drip off.
Place on waxed paper; immediately sprinkle crushed toffee onto the wet
chocolate to look like hedgehog spikes.
4) With a toothpick dipped in
chocolate, make two eyes and a dot on the nose. Let stand until set. Store in
an airtight container.
