How to make Nutter Butter Santa Cookies

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
Put 3 squares of almond bark in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring after each until completely melted. 
Dip one end of each cookie into the melted almond bark covering a little less than half of the cookie. 
Place on baking sheet. Repeat for all the cookies.
Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until almond bark is set. 

Remove from refrigerator when the almond bark is set.
The almond bark in the bowl has probably started to set up a bit as well. Reheat in the microwave in 20 second increments, stirring until completely melted. 
Dip the other half of the cookie in the melted almond bark, then immediately dip the same end into the red sanding sugar. Be sure to leave a little white showing for the hat trim. 

 

Dip a toothpick in black icing and use it to draw a small mouth and dot 2 eyes on each cookie.
Squeeze a white dot of icing on the top or side of the hat. Each hat can be a little different. 
Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until almond bark and icing is set. 

Tips & Tricks

  • If you don’t have almond bark, you can also use white chocolate chips or white candy melts.
  • Instead of drawing the face, use the almond bark as “glue” to adhere miniature chocolate chips for the eyes and a red hot for the nose.
