Green and Speckled Frog Cookies

My oldest son’s teacher asked me if I would provide some cookies for the Frog Class on their last day of school (she knows I like to do crafty things).  A quick internet search turned up these instructions from Kraft for creating a frog from an Oreo.  I modified the idea a little bit using Golden Oreos (the vanilla variety) and dipping them in green icing.  I also used a flat pretzel chip for the legs and added a tongue made from a cut-up fruit roll up.  These were a visual hit with the various adults at the school but the kids’ reactions were mixed.  Some found them too messy and (believe it or not) too sweet.  One of the teachers suggested substituting a vanilla wafer for the Oreo and I do think that would be an improvement.  The fruit roll up wanted to stick everywhere but on the cookie so I would use a less sticky type next time.  These could be a cute addition to a frog- or princess-themed party (you know, kiss the frog).
