Turn Nutter Butter Cookies into these easy-to-make Skull Cookies for Halloween. Each peanut butter cookie is coated in white chocolate and is decorated to look like a creepy skull.
If you are looking for an easy Halloween treat to make for a party, grab a package of Nutter Butter cookies and make these cookie skulls.
The peanut butter sandwich cookies are already skull-shaped so you simply dip them in white chocolate and then draw on a face.
You could even serve the white-chocolate-dipped cookies to your party guests with a food coloring marker and let them decorate the cookies themselves.
