Alphabet Snack: “M” is for Mongoose

A Mongoose is a weasel-like carnivore famous for its ability to defeat deadly cobra snakes!


~ Bread ~ Sugar ~ Cinnamon ~ Raisins ~



1. Using round part of piece of bread for ears, trim bread to make a rounder shape. Spread with a bit of butter, if desired.

2. Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture (make sure it is cinnamon-y enough to be medium brown) lightly over bread.

3. Cut a circle out of a piece of paper or paper towel, then cut in half. Place semi-circles on cheeks of mongoose. Place a spoon between ears.

4. Sprinkle white sugar over, lightly. Place raisins for eyes and mouth. (I used a craisin for the nose.)

5. Place in toaster oven on broil, or under broiler in your oven for 2-5 minutes, or until sugar is crystallized. Be sure to watch it to avoid burning!

About the Mongoose:

  • Mongoose are famous for being able to defeat deadly king cobra snakes, but they don’t like to eat them.
