  • 12 Nutter Butter Cookies
  • 1/4 cup red candy melts
  • 1/2 cup red candy melts or white almond bark
  • 12 red ball sprinkles
  • 24 candy eyes


  • Start by melting your red candy melts in the microwave. Do 20 second intervals stirring between each cycle, until melted.
  • Dip one of the Nutter Butters in the red just the top portion to mimic the Santa hat. Place on a parchment lined tray. Repeat the steps for the rest of the cookies.
  • Allow the chocolate to harden and then melt your white chocolate the same way. Then dip about half of the bottom of the cookie in the white chocolate to mimic the Santa beard.
  • Once you are done dipping cookies, take the remaining white chocolate and place in a piping bag or Ziploc bag. Cut the tip off.
  • Then add tiny dots of white chocolate for eyes, and nose, and add the sprinkle for nose and candy eyes.
  • Let the Santa Nutter Butter Cookies set up, and then enjoy.


Melting Chocolate - If your chocolate is too thick then you can add in a little shortening or coconut oil, around 1/2-1 teaspoon. Stir in with the chocolate.
Candy Nose - You can also use a mini M&M or red hot for the nose. Feel free to even use red candy melts to add a dot if you want.
Making Cookies - You can make as many or few of the cookies as you would like.
