Nutter Butter Santa Cookies

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm not a baker. However, I do like giving cute edible gifts or bringing a tray of fun little treats to a party.  That's why I loved making these Santa cookies for the holidays last year.  (I got the idea when a friend had posted a similar version on her Facebook page using red colored sugar for the hat, but I decided to go with red melting chocolate on the hat and add some coconut on the beard.) 

They're perfect for a Christmas party, but require no baking and use all store bought ingredients  (My kind of baked good!)  

Here's what you need:

  • Nutter Butter Cookies (could also use Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies, Vienna Fingers, or other oval-shaped cookie)
  • White melting chocolate disks
  • Red melting chocolate disks
  • White Chocolate chips
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Cinnamon Red Hots candies
  • coconut flakes (or plain white sprinkles)

Here's what to do:

 1.  Dip each end of your Nutter Butter into the melted white chocolate.   I have this Wilton Electric Melting Pot and I love it ~ makes it super easy to melt your chocolate disks and then keep the melted chocolate the right temperature for dipping (even if you get slowed down by helping kids!)  

NOTE: If you're making a bunch of these, I'd recommend dipping no more than 8-10 at a time so the chocolate doesn't harden before you can sprinkle on the coconut.

2.  While the white chocolate is still "wet", sprinkle some coconut flakes on the bottom part for Santa's beard.

Top and bottom dipped in white chocolate and Santa's coconut beard in place.

3.  Let the white chocolate cool and harden while you melt your red chocolate disks.  Then quickly dip part of the top in the red melted chocolate, leaving part of the white showing.  

4. While the red is still "wet", press a white chocolate chip on the side to make the pom-pom on the end of Santa's hat.

With the hats and beards done, he's ready for the final touches.

5.  Using a bit of melted chocolate or frosting, add two mini chocolate chips for eyes and the cinnamon red hot for a nose.  ( I just used a toothpick to add a tiny bit of melted chocolate then attached the eyes and nose)

That's it!  Super cute and super easy (but lots of fun and very festive!).
