With Shark Week upon us, it's time to get into the spirit of things with some festive shark-inspired eats and drinks. No need to wait for a Shark Week party when you can have your own any day of the week! Check out the following recipes that are perfect for your gathering.

Waves of Fun Cookie

This adorable Waves of Fun Cookie from Betty Crocker is perfect to make with kids, and you can add as many gummy sharks as you desire. You'll need standard recipes like sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla, flour, blue decorating gel, and white frosting, with little add-ons such as striped gum, gummy rings candy, licorice, fruit snack roll, cookies, and grahams. It takes a little over an hour from start-to-finish, including cool down time.

Watermelon Shark Carving

The Watermelon Shark Carving would make a fantastic centerpiece for a Shark Week party, and it's a lot easier to do than it looks. Of course, you'll need a watermelon, but for this recipe, you'll also need any round fruit as well as Swedish Fish. The tools you'll need are a large knife and spoon, a vegetable peeler, dry erase marker, and a small utility knife. Depending on your carving skills, it will take less than an hour to complete.

Shark Fin Cupcakes

These Shark Fin Cupcakes are absolutely adorable, and are ideal for a party, to send to school with your kids, or even to just make for your family and friends. All you have to do is bake up a batch of chocolate cupcakes, top it with white frosting that's colored with blue food coloring, and use Oreo cookies to make the fins. Super easy to make!

Shark Attack Punch

While the Shark Attack Punch doesn't include alcohol, you can always add it in if you're making this drink recipe for adults. The kid-friendly version includes Blue Hawaiian Punch, Sparkling Pear Juice, and gummy sharks. Should you so choose, you can also add in grenadine to give the appearance of blood.. For the adult version, just throw in your favorite clear alcohol.

Happy Shark Week!
