Now you may be wondering why I am making ladybug snacks in October – aren’t they more suited to a spring theme? Well I’d agree with you other than for a new release of a special gift edition of Ladybug Girl! Are you familiar with the Ladybug Girl books? Thanks to Penguin Young Readers we’ve been reading many of them, like Ladybug Girl and BingoLadybug Girl and Bumblebee BoyLadybug Girl and the Best Ever PlaydateLadybug Girl and the Big Snow (would make a great Christmas present), Ladybug Girl and the Bug SquadLadybug Girl and the Dress-Up Dilemma (perfect for Halloween!!), Ladybug Girl at the Beach and finally the new Ladybug Girl: The Super Fun Edition.

These well written books are beautifully illustrated and tell a gentle story with a simple message. My son absolutely loves the fact that LadyBug Girl’s dog is called Bingo: we bought two puppies a few months ago and F named one of them Bingo!! So Ladybug Girl and Bingo is one of his favorites, as is Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy because he often pretends to be a bee!

The Super Fun Edition comes with punch-out paper dolls of Lulu (Ladybug Girl) and Bingo, and 30 reusable stickers for dressing them up! The jacket of the book also opens up into a giant poster which I think is an inspired idea!

To celebrate all things Ladybug Girl – I decided to make some ladybug cookies! I’ll confess that these aren’t the healthiest treats in the world, but they *are* super cute! To make these cookies I used:

Ladybug Oreo TreatsMelt the red candy according to the package instructions. Using the spoon, dip each Oreo into the melted candy, shake off the excess, then place it carefully on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper.Ladybug Oreo Treats

While the candy is still wet, place chocolate chips for the spots.Ladybug Oreo Treats

When the red candy coating has dried, add the head and wing division line with a black icing gel pen. I accidentally bought a sparkly pen! Ladybug Oreo Treats

I had originally intended to add edible googly eyes (these lovely ones that have eyelashes!!!) but in fact they were too big and the cookies looked cuter without them. Plus these snacks probably didn’t need any extra sugar!
