    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 32

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    • 12 ounces chocolate-flavored candy coating, cut in pieces
    • 1 (1 lb) package Nutter Butter sandwich cookies (cream-filled peanut butter sandwich cookie)
    • 64 tiny pretzel twists
    • 4 teaspoons miniature M&M baking bits

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Line cookies sheets with waxed paper. In small pan, melt chocolate coating over low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth.
    2. 2
      For each cookie bug, hold one cookie with tongs; dip entire top and sides in coating, letting excess drip off. Place cookie, coated side up, on cookie sheets.
    3. 3
      Cut pretzels into curved pieces for the legs. Dip one end of each leg piece in coating; place 3 legs on each side of cookie body.
    4. 4
      Cut 2 short pieces for antennae. Dip one end of each antennae piece in coating and place on top of cookie. Place 2 chocolate baking bits behind antennae for eyes. Let stand until coating is set before storing, about 10 minutes.
