Nutter Butter Snowman Snacks

If you have kiddos in school, you more than likely have more than one Christmas party to attend this week. That also means you more than likely need to take some sort of yummy treat too. I know some parents would much rather be the plate/cup/napkin bringers, but I LOVE to bring something fun and yummy for the kiddos to enjoy...even if it is way harder than just picking up some cups:) So if you're like me and crazily think that bringing cute treats for your kiddo's class is fun, then try out these {oh so adorable and really not that hard to make} Nutter Butter Snowman Snacks.
 My inspiration for these cuties came from Pinterest {surprise, surprise}. Here's a link to my pin and a link to the blog post {My Pretty Purse} where the pin is from:)
 Start by dipping your Nutter Butter in white candy coating aka almond bark. I used a toothpick stuck in between the two cookie pieces to dip them {though it didn't work every time because the toothpick slipped out or the cookie broke}. While the candy coating is still wet add two M&M's for buttons, mini chocolate chips for eyes and a smile, and an orange tic tac for the nose. They are SUPER cute this way, but to make them even cuter add some earmuffs too! I did the earmuffs the same way I did with my Simple Snowman Snacks last year....curl up the Pull n Peel and place them in the freezer to harden {this helps them keep their shape while the coating dries} then place the Pull n Peel on the snowman's head with two M&Ms on either side.
SUPER cute and really not that hard to make...though a little time consuming with all the small candy pieces. If you are concerned about nut allergies, you can use any other oval shaped cookie in place of the Nutter Butter.
What kind of fun treats are you making for your kiddos this year?
Pin It!

There are so many cute things you can make with nutter butters. I so wish Buddy wasn't allergic to peanuts. :-(

We are actually doing a Christmas breakfast with the kindergarten class this year. So that limits the fun Christmas treat we can bring in but lucky for me Trey has snack next week so I might have to bring these.
Thanks for the idea. Have a great day.

How cute! My kids love Nutter Butter cookies. I'm baking all weekend with my mom and the kids. Zoe wants to do her gingerbread men:)

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I'm always surprised you are allowed to take homemade treats to school. We are only allowed to bring store-bought things due to health safety reasons.

Anyways, these are super cute!

I really do need to check out Pinterest...I still have not joined...gasp. These are simply adorable and will be a huge hit. I hope to get some treats made this weekend...probably something simple like rice crispy treats.
