Moose Farts

Moose Farts. A super easy to prepare, no-bake cookie treat that kids will love and maybe giggle a little at the name too.

Recently, a follower of the RockRecipes Facebook Page messaged me and asked if I had a recipe for Moose Farts! My first reaction was, of course… whaaaaat!!?

Then, suddenly I thought, wait, where have I heard that before. The nagging familiarness finally gave way to a memory of a trip to Gander for an event my daughter was participating in a couple of years ago.

On that weekend in Gander we ate at Rosie’s Diner and Bakery twice. Once for lunch and back again for breakfast the next morning. The diner food we had there was top notch.

From the classic club house sandwich and fries I had for lunch, to the toutons and eggs the next morning. Rosie’s is definitely worth the few minutes off the TCH if you are driving through Gander.

As you enter Rosie’s, there is a small display from their in house bakery with fresh bread, cakes and cookies.  I suddenly remembered looking at one of the display cases with Spouse and there was a hand written sign in front of one of the piles of cookie trays announcing in bold letters “MOOSE FARTS”. So these were a thing after all.

I then made a few discreet enquires with friends in Central, and found fewer degrees of separation than six. With this info I was able to procure a recipe that I was assured was a near facsimile of Rosie’s famous Moose Farts, if not the genuine article itself.

Having never tried Rosie’s Moose Farts, I can make no such declaration. Perhaps someone from Gander who knows them well, will have to try the recipe and give us a definitive opinion.

This no-bake cookie confection could not be easier to make, and would be an ideal snow day project if you have small kids about. I immediately sent the recipe to my nephews Nate & Luke in Edmonton, who are still in Primary School.

I know they will be thrilled to tell everyone at school they made “Moose Farts”. LOL! I can just see their grins now.

Made this recipe with my 5 1/2 year old granddaughter. She loved making them and sharing them with family. We rolled half of the ‘farts’ in Oreo crumbs and we substituted the coconut with rice crispies!

Hairy Moose Droppings - Lord Byron's Kitchen

Thursday 26th of November 2020

[…] Once in a while, one has to let go of all better judgement and take a leap. I did that a few years ago with my Unicorn Poop Cookies. They were a hit and brought loads of traffic to Lord Byron’s Kitchen. Last Christmas, I changed up the recipe a bit and shared Elf Poop Cookies. In an effort to include no bake recipes in this series, I’m going out on a limb and sharing my version of Rock Recipe’s Moose Farts. […]
