My kids have always been fascinated with ocean creatures. We routinely watch Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, and have always enjoyed ocean life. We made these cute “Under the Sea” Cookies that are just as fun to make as they are to eat. Seriously. I mean, you get to eat chocolate rocks! My kids were elated. Rocks! They look like the real thing but they’re chocolate!

*You can find 2 of our favorite recipes for Sugar Cookies here- Copycat Swig Sugar Cookies and Super Soft Sugar Cookies. I used a Krusteaz mix {Butter Sugar Cookies} because I love how they taste and they’re super simple to make! No need to roll and cut, just scoop them out with a small cookie scoop and back them.

Speaking of ocean life! I took this fun photo at a local aquarium that encourages kids to touch and experience the sea life they feature. It’s a fun place and we tend to visit a few times a year. This is my middle son saying hello to a cute sting ray. I don’t know a lot about sting rays, but the variety they have here are so comical! They come several inches out of the water (hoping to be fed something tasty, I’m sure!) and don’t seem to mind the kids at all.
