These little Nutter Butter Easter Chicks are just so adorable. I whipped them up in no time this morning. The kiddos have seen all of the Easter Novelties released at the stores this past weekend and I guess I teased them a bit with my Homemade Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs. They all decided it was time to break out the Easter Decor and their Easter Baskets. I know, a bit early eh? ha ha! I figured I would surprise them with these cute little Nutter Butter Cookie Easter Chicks for their afternoon snack today. If you are needing a cute, quick and easy treat idea for Easter, these Nutter Butter Easter Chicks would be a great idea. I am thinking they are just too cute and will go well on our Easter Dessert Table too!
Nutter Butter Easter Chicks
I had picked up some spring colored chocolate melting chips at Michael’s yesterday with my 50% off Coupon and my additional 25% Off entire purchase coupon. I scored some serious deals. So I had the yellow chocolates on hand. I also had some leftover Starbursts from Halloween (I know, yikes! I checked the date and they were all good) that I figured would work great for the little chicks beaks and feet.
12 Nutter Butter cookies
1/2 cup Yellow Candy Melting Chips
3-4 Orange Starburst
24 Mini Chocolate Chips
Cut Starburst into 3 rectangular strips (1/4″ x 3/4″)
Cut each of those in half, creating 6 – 1/4″ x 3/8″ rectangles.
Now cut each of those diagonally creating 12 triangles for beaks.
You are going to repeat this process on the other 2 Starbursts to create 24 triangles that you will make 2 cuts in each and separate to make toes on the feet.
Set beaks and feet aside.
Heat Yellow Candy Chips by microwaving for 30 seconds stirring and repeating until melted. Allow to cool for 2-3 minutes.
Lay cookie in melted candy and spoon mixture over cookie to coat completely.
Carefully remove from candy so the cookie doesn’t come apart, and let excess candy drip off.
Lay cookie on wax paper.
Place mini chocolate chips for eyes.
Place beaks and feet.
Refrigerate to set chocolate.
