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.
- 113.39 g pink candy melts (I used white candy melts with pink food coloring)
- 113.39 g 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
- 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.
- 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.
- Blue Babies: Repeat the above directions. Allow to harden.
- 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.
- Allow to harden, then serve.
What is cuter than these little nutters? Everyone at the shower loved them, and so did my husband! Thanks for a sweet shower recipe.
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. :)
Super fun and fairly easy! I needed some awesome cookies for a baby boy shower. I mixed the white candy melts with the royal blue (two blue to one white). Altogether I used 20 white and 40 royal blue to coat 1 - 16oz package of Nutter Butters. I also bought bright white for the face, shaved off the melting nub off the top to let it lay flatter. And lastly, I only coated the top of each as the one I did totally coated/dunked seemed a little much. They taste great though, I was surprised. I will definitely not be scared to do this again and now I am familiar with candy melts, who knows what might happen! I'll try to upload a pic. Thanks for the timely and cute recipe!
