Quick and Easy Halloween Treats - Nutter Butter Skulls

dipping fork or kitchen fork
parchment paper lined baking sheet that fits into your freezer
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?

I LOVE these!! I have used Nutter Butters to make ghosts...but I never would have thought to do skulls! Great idea, thank you so much for sharing!!

Very cute and creative!
i love all these ideas just wish that canada wasnt nut free , leaves parents limited ..school, karate class, brownies all are nut free ....is there any other cookies with this shape out there for us in canada

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.
Love these Beth! And the little faces you drew are adorable!! 🙂
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!
