      These came out sooooo cute! I made these for my son's 1st grade class for September birthday babies (the school mascot is are the Linder Lions so I thought it worked well). Made exactly as directed except some of the lions had blue or green eyes too. They were a huge hit with kids and teacher alike. Would make again for sure thanks for a unique and easy recipe.

      These were awesome! They went over quite well with my little monkeys. I'd like to come up with something besides coconut though, since no one really likes it. We thought of strips of fondant or a ring of Cheerios. Hey maybe cornflakes? I will have to update again when I've tried these other options.
