Shark-tastic Desserts

Are you tired of my shark referenced puns?!  Well…alls I can say is too bad…YOU will look forward to a whole week of them!  My little man’s shark themed birthday party got off to the right start with these sweet treats.

To top everything off we’ve got some Pinterest-inspired desserts for you and a lil’ bit of a DIY tip as well.  Who doesn’t want to eat these awesome desserts?!  Thanks to Megan & Diane Kile for making them and helping with the dessert set-up!  Couldn’t have asked for better than these fellow crafters!  Feel free to pin away and let’s get this party started!

Make your shark jello with blue jello {of course!}, get some shark gummies, tear open a few cuties, and top that boat with a sail!  Our sails were from the store but you can easily make your own with cute tape {available everywhere} and a toothpick.  Grab some spoons and eat up!

Onto some sun action here.  We got those teddy grahams sunbathing on some brownies sprinkled with graham crackers for sand and lying on those sour tape things and an umbrella to protect them from the sun!  Those slippahs are nutter butters with colored icing and a m&m.  Sooo easy peasy!

Marshmallow fish pops!  So you’ve probably seen many versions of this online and many tutorials and you’re probably wondering, “why didn’t she cover the whole marshmallow in blue chocolate to resemble the ocean?”.  I actually did a test run of these a couple days before the party and covered the entire marshmallow in blue chocolate and I was on a sugar high the rest of the day.  Can you imagine kids eating those all day?  Yup, thought so.  So I covered only half and just went with it.  You will need jumbo marshmallows, crushed graham cracker crust, bag of fishes, blue melting chocolate, and lollipop sticks.  This also works best if you roll the marshmallow into the chocolate rather than dipping it.  I also used vegetable oil to get a runny consistency for the chocolate.  If you’re the type to need an exact tutorial, here is a good blog, See Vanessa Craft.  She has awesome photos too!  I would have them too but most times I’m in too much of a hurry to get them done!

Aren’t these so much fun?  And super easy for you to do with little to no effort for your shark/beach themed party.  And who says you have to have a party to make these?  It’s shark week…make em’ now!
