Bed for Corduroy



My son loves the book Corduroy. We read it every night, sometimes twice! So, today we tried to make a cozy (and yummy) bed for our admired bear friend.
I melted bakers white chocolate in the microwave. Then, I spooned a little into another spoon and placed the bear in the center of the chocolate. I used a butter knife to spread a thin layer of chocolate over the body of the bear. Finally, we rolled the bottom portion of the spoon in some colorful sprinkles.


His favorite line from the book, "Rows and rows of beds". We were at a department store and came around the corner to see, well... rows and rows of beds... He was thrilled and wanted to find the button on the bed like Corduroy. 


Eventually, our sweet bedtime friend was consumed, along with his cozy bed and colorful blanket. Wow, was he yummy!
