Silly Seal Sandwich

Sometimes creating animal art from a sandwich is as simple as cutting up pieces and rearranging them. No fancy or hard-to-find foods are necessary to make this cute seal. You just need a sandwich, a knife and a mini chocolate chip. If you like, set the Arctic scene with some icy blue water and Kix snow.

To make this sandwich, it’s best to start with a “sticky” sandwich, such as peanut butter and jelly (as shown here) or a sandwich with a spread between each layer. That way, the pieces stay together when standing.

Prepare your sandwich, and use a sharp knife to cut the sandwich as shown below. Discard (or eat) the little bit by the seal’s belly. For the front flippers, you may need to trim the pieces so they match each other a bit more.



Stand the seal on a plate, arrange the back flipper at the end and the flippers on the sides.

If desired, make water by cutting a piece of blue Fruit Roll-Up and placing on the plate first. Arrange the seal, and then fill in the rest of the plate with Kix Cereal.
