Boiled Egg Snack for Kids: Naked Mole Rats

Since Halloween is around the corner, I wanted to come up with something out of the ordinary
and yet still a little bit disturbing for your kids!!

Boil some eggs, grab some ham and whip up some “so ugly, they’re cute” naked mole rats!!


~ Boiled Eggs ~ Ham ~ Cream Cheese ~ Olives ~ Almond Slices ~

Actual Naked Mole Rat:

Not so attractive….and yet he was SO cute on Kim Possible.

SEE???  Super cute!!!

To make the Naked Mole Rat, boil some eggs.
Once they are cooked, peeled, dried, and cooled, cut them in half.

Take slices of ham and cut them in half. {depending on the size}
They should be big enough to cover the egg.

Lay ham on a piece of plastic wrap with the egg on top:

Pull plastic wrap up so the ham is covering the egg and twist tightly.

Set them in fridge for an hr or so for the ham to take shape.

Unwrap them and set them on a plate.  I had to pat mine dry because the ham was still wet.  Roll tiny balls of cream cheese for the eyes and then press tiny pieces of olive into the center.  A tiny piece of olive is used for his nose.  Stick two almond slices into the ham/egg for the teeth.  Cut a tiny strip of ham for the upper lip.

Assort on platter and serve.

        THAT’S what that thing was on Kim Possible!?! I never thought about it before. These are so creative and definitely icky. Kids will love them! I remember when Discover magazine did their April Fool’s prank one year on discovering hot-head naked mole rats under antarctic ice. The rats had some sort of head focusing feature on their head that melted ice and allowed them to burrow. Hilarious. I will never get that fake picture out of my mind. =)
