Nutter Butter Babies (Baby Shower)

Total Time

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.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 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


  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.

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 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!
