Oo these are good! So so good! I’m sure my kids will be well into their teens and I will still be making them kid-friendly treats 🙂
Taking advantage they’re still little enough to enjoy these… and full transparency, my husband and I live for these.
What you’ll need…
• 1 pack of Nutter Butter Cookies
• 1 bag of Reese’s Pieces
• 1 bag of yellow candy melts
• popsicle sticks (straws don’t work as well)
• chocolate ball sprinkles
• orange or pink ball sprinkles for beak.
• parchment paper
How to make these…
First things first- assemble your nutter butter cookies and popsicle sticks. The reason I said straws don’t work as well is because they split the cookie open. Popsicle sticks slide in nicely, keeping everything together.
Slide popsicle at the base of nutter butter, about an inch or so. Do not pierce cookie- just slide into the peanut butter portion.
Once this step is done, set them aside.
Place entire bag of candy melts into a microwave safe mixing bowl and heat for 75 seconds in intervals of 30 seconds, 30 seconds, and 15 seconds.
Pro tip: add 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil & stir to make the chocolate smoother for dipping!
Coat nutter butter cookie pop with the melted chocolate. I like to use a ladle instead of dipping to prevent cookie from sliding off the popsicle stick.
See tutorial video for example.
While chocolate is still wet & tacky, place Reese’s pieces onto cookie. Two orange pieces to resemble feet and two yellow pieces on the sides to resemble wings.
Quickly add eyes by placing two chocolate ball sprinkles and colorful sprinkle for beak.
Pro tip: use tweezers to attach sprinkles!
That’s all it takes to have the yummiest and incredibly adorable spring treat everyone will love!
Let me know if you give it a try 🙂
till next time…
