Nutter Butter Santa Claus Cookies

Sophie has an Activity Days cookie exchange coming up, so this evening we made these cookies for it. Honestly it's more decorating than "making", but it's a very fun cookie to do with kids. Sophie loved dipping the cookies in the chocolate and putting the little faces on.

Nutter Butter Santa Claus Cookies

2 bags white chocolate chips (12 oz each)
1 pkg. (1 lb.) Nutter Butter sandwich cookies
red colored sugar
1 bag mini chocolate chips
32 red hot candies

Pour the chips from one bag of white chocolate chips into a bowl and microwave for 35 seconds. Stir and microwave for another 35 seconds. Repeat until chips are completely melted. Dip one end of each cookie into the melted chocolate, allowing excess to drip off. Place on wax paper. For santa's hat, sprinkle red sugar on the top part of chocolate. Press one vanilla chip into the center of the hat for a pom pom, let stand until set.

Dip other end of each cookie into melted chocolate for beard, leaving the center of the cookie uncovered. Place on wire racks. With a dab of melted chocolate, attach mini chocolate chips for eyes and a red-hot for nose. Place on waxed paper until set. Makes 32 cookies.
