Thanksgiving Nutter Butter Cookies
Tina Reason, Tallahassee Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner
Stephanie Beckingham, Big Bend Homeless Coalition
6 Nutter Butters
6 Mini Nutter Butters
1/2 cup Dark Cocoa Candy Melting Chips
18 pieces of Candy Corn for feathers
3 pieces of Candy Corn with white and yellow removed
12 Candy Eyes
Cut 3 trimmed pieces of Orange candy corn in half lengthwise to make 6 beaks.
Heat Dark Cocoa Candy Chips by microwaving for 30 seconds stirring and repeating until melted. Allow to cool for 2-3 minutes.
Dip Nutter Butter in melted candy.
Carefully remove from candy and let excess drip off.
Lay cookie on wax paper. Use spoon to smooth any finger spots.
Place Mini Nutter Butter on bottom half to make head.
Press 3 pieces of candy corn into top to make feathers.
Carefully place a little melted candy on back side and place 2 Candy eyes.
Carefully place a little melted candy on back side and place beak.
Immediately place in refrigerator for 10 minutes to set candy mix.
Nutter Butters (the mini kind), Hershey’s Kisses, and mini chocolate chips.
Just use a dab of frosting to attach a Kiss to each cookie:
And then pop a little chocolate chip on the top. You can also use regular sized chips, or peanut butter chips here, I just happen to like how the mini’s look. You can also use a mini Nilla Wafer instead of a Nutter Butter (great option if you’ve got nut allergies at your house), I like the Nutter Butters because they have that cute criss-cross pattern on top.
