Nutter Butter Reindeer
Featured Pinch Tips Video
- one package nutter butter cookies
- chocolate almond bark
- red hot candies (or can use red cookie icing)
- candy eyes (or can use white and black cookie icing)
- broken pretzels
1Melt the chocolate almond bark in a double boiler or microwave.
2Dip each cookie into the melted almond bark. Do one at a time tapping cookie to get the excess almond bark to drip off. Put onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
3After dipping a few cookies at a time put broken pretzels on the top of the dipped cookies to resemble antlers. Next put two candy eyes not quite halfway down in the cookie. Finally put a Red Hot candy at the bottom of the cookie for the nose. Continue dipping and decorating the cookies. You can make a few at a time or make an entire package. I bought my candy eyes at Walmart and had just enough candy eyes in each package to decorate an entire package of cookies. I did half a package of Reindeer and the other half I made Santa's.
4As I posted in the ingredients, you can make eyes and the nose using cookie icing. I have a lot of Christmas goodies to make so it was just easier for me to use the already made ones.
