Still need ideas for those Nutter Butters?


Today I have two more freakin’ adorable and easy Halloweenie cookies using Nutter Butters. What would be more fun than a platter full of Ghost and Eyeball Cookies as well as these Witch Finger and Goblin Feet cookies brought to a Halloween party or dropped by the neighbor’s?

Like the cookies of yesterday, these start with Nutter Butter Peanut Butter Cookies dipped in candy melts. Here are a few of my tips to help you make your cookies turn out boo-tiful!


• Melt candy melts or almond bark according to package directions, making sure chocolate is completely melted before dipping cookies.

• Dip one side of the cookie first. Shake the cookie slightly to make sure melted chocolate covers the entire cookie. Place cookie, chocolate side up, on waxed paper. Let chocolate harden and repeat dipping process on opposite side. Place cookie back on wax paper to set up. Using finger spread melted candy melts over place where fingers were.

• Hard candies, nuts, etc. will stick to the cookie better when it chocolate is slightly hardened but not set.

• For one (16 ounce) package Nutter Butter cookies, use two (14 ounce) bags candy melts or one (24 ounce) package almond bark or melting chocolate.


Now go make yourself some spooky cookies!
