A toast to the bears

Starboy and I saw these bear toasts on Pinterest, and he demanded some for dinner. This version is peanut butter, bananas, blueberries, and strawberry slices for flowers. Think what a cute hair bow or bow tie those would make! The "plate" is a cutting board. 

I tried using honey to draw a little mouth under the nose, but that just ended up being a big blob of honey. I got no complaints from Starboy, but it didn't add anything visually. I sliced up the remaining banana and froze the slices on a piece of parchment—guess whose mommy gets to have a PB / banana smoothie in the morning?

These bears are really irresistible. You could do them with plain toast, or cinnamon toast as well. I've also used chocolate chips for the eyes. (Dangerous precedent. Do not advise.)

OMG -- A Nutella black bear! Speaking of dangerous.....
