We cooked our potatoes in the microwave, but this is a recipe that you could use left-over boiled potatoes for as well. Our little hedgehog can be set on a bed of clipped chives and served with a little bowl of Ranch dressing or melted cheese for dipping.

You'll need:

  • Small potatoes
  • Slivered almonds
  • Raisins
  • Cream cheese
  • Dried black-eyed peas
  • A little adult help


  • Kitchen Shears or scissors
  • A tooth pick
  • A serving plate
  1. Cook the potatoes in the microwave until soft. Let them cool.
  2. Decide which end of the potato is going to be the face of your hedgehog.
  3. Starting at the opposite end, arrange the slivered almonds as spines along the hedgehog's back. Leave an area clear for the face.
  4. Cut a raisin in half and use a little cream cheese to stick it on for the nose.
  5. Select two black-eyed peas for the eyes. A dab of cream cheese on each will work like edible glue.
  6. Put Happy the Hedgehog on a plate. You can arrange chopped chives for grass. Remember to remove the black-eyed peas before you start to eat.
  7. How cute!
