Nutter Butter Babies (Baby Shower)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Kathy

Next time you throw a baby shower, you have to make these adorable little gems. I made them in pink and blue, but neutral colors like green and yellow would work.

Super cute cookies!! On my first batch, I trimmed off the pointy tips of the wafers to be used for faces (so they would lay flat) then painted all of them before I started dipping. And, I only dipped one side of the cookies. On the second batch, I decided to use the pointy side of wafers, using the little nub as the nose. Even went a little crazy with the "paint" on a few of them, adding some nostrils and hair!! Thanks for sharing such a fun idea for a baby shower. Will try to upload my photos. :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 ounces pink candy melts (I used white candy melts with pink food coloring)
  • 4 ounces blue candy melts
  • 16 round white chocolate candy melts, unmelted (faces)
  • black decorating gel (and a fine-tipped paint brush)
  • 16 Nutter Butter sandwich cookies
  • wax paper


  1. In a small dish, microwave (50% power) the pink candy melts. Don't over cook. If you do, add a small bit of vegetable shortening.
  2. Pink Babies: Dip 8 Nutter Butter cookies into the pink candy, the place on wax paper to set up. Before the candy shell hardens, press a round white candy melt into the upper section of the cookie, creating the baby's face. Allow to harden.
  3. Blue Babies: Repeat the above directions. Allow to harden.
  4. When the candy coating has hardened, squirt a little bit of black decorating gel onto the wax paper. Using a fine-tipped paint brush, draw the baby's eyes, nose, and mouth on the white candy melt. You can also create those features by piping icing, but I find it easier to draw them.
  5. Allow to harden, then serve.
