Quick and easy Halloween Treats – Nutter Butter Skulls

Nutter Butter Skulls

You’ll need:
 
Nutter Butter Cookies
 melted white confectionery coating/candy melts*
black food coloring marker**
 
*If you don’t have experience working with and melting confectionery coating/candy melts, read my Chocolate Making Tips page (here.)
 
**For tips working with food coloring markers, go here
 
Supplies Needed:
 
dipping fork or kitchen fork
parchment paper lined baking sheet that fits into your freezer
 
Instructions:
 
 
Dip a Nutter Butter cookie into the melted white candy coating. Lift it out using a dipping fork or kitchen fork and allow excess candy coating to drip off. Set on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat. Freeze dipped cookies for 5 minutes. Remove from freezer and allow to come to room temperature. 
 
 
Use a black food coloring marker to draw on the features of each skull. Get creative and do some different faces. 
 

Store in an airtight container for several weeks. These will be adorning my dessert table in just a few days at our party. I’m really excited for my friends and family to come celebrate such a fun holiday with us. Are you getting ready for a party too?

    These are great! Love them – Not sure I am talented enough to successfully pull off the dip/freeze/draw combo but I'm willing to give it the old college try! Have everything I need. You have such great ideas!

      Oh, sorry to hear that. You could swap out Pepperide Farm Milanos or any oval cream filled cookies. I know there are some but I'm not sure of brand names. The cookies wont have the "8" shape, but will still work well as skulls.
