Edible Haman for Purim

What you will need:

Wooden skewers
Winkies candies or thin pretzel sticks
3 x 5 inch plastic bags
Pipe cleaners or ribbon
Edible markers
Rice Krispie Treats (recipe follows)
Hamentaschen (for recipe see holiday section or store bought are fine)
Glue gun (use with adult supervision)

Color facial features on the marshmallows (this is an edible Haman so its okay to do angry mean faces if you like)
Cut rice krispie treats in rectangles (these will be for Haman’s body). Take one wooden skewer and push it through the bottom center of the base of one plastic bag. Next skewer the rice krispie treat vertically in the bag so the body has the long side up. Add the marshmallow head to the top of the rice krispie treat and then add the hamentaschen as Haman’s hat on the top of the head.


Gather the plastic bag over the hamentaschen hat and secure with a pipe cleaner or a ribbon.
Now add the arms and the legs. If you use thin pretzel sticks, poke them through the plastic bag and into the rice krispie treat for arms and legs. If you use the winkies, heat up the glue gun and put a small amount of glue on the plastic bag and secure the winkies on the glue for arms and legs.
