Muffin Tin Monday The Desert

The Desert Muffin Tin

My 14 year old niece requested a muffin tin meal. They are now popular among my niece and nephews. They love my bento lunches and muffin tin lunches provide “something different” for lunches at home.

Top Row:

  • Camel Animal Crackers
  • Chocolate turtle (I melted chocolate, placed in ziplock bag, cut corner, piped into turtle shape, and put in the freezer until I made the lunch) on sand (graham cracker crumbs)
  • Palm trees (flour tortilla with food coloring, baked in oven until crisp and lightly browned) in sand (couscous)

Bottom Row:

  • Cactus (asparagus) on sand (cashews)
  • Water at the oasis (blueberries)
  • Pyramid (onigiri with corn and shredded cheddar)

    I love your palm trees in the couscous sand and the turtle sounds yummy. The only thing I could think of for sand was the graham cracker crumbs. And you pyramid is so cute, but I have to ask, what is onigiri?

  4. You totally rocked the desert theme. Love the little turtle! 🙂

    Very attractive theme! Kids love to see a variety of stuff on their plate or rather muffin pan as it breaks the monotony. Nice colours and shapes.

      Thank you! I only make muffin tins lunches when there is a theme that interests me so the niece and nephews argue over who will get one. I do try to make it even who gets them.

    I’ve really missed the Muffin Tin Monday theme — so I’m trying to visit others and see if we can bring some Muffin Tin Moments and gather together and share ideas. I have a link-up and button on my blog and hope that you will join us! I’ve really enjoyed looking at all your creative muffin tin creations.
