 NUTTER BUTTER GHOST COOKIES

One of the great things that I love about these Ghost cookies is that you can use this recipe for any type of creations you and your kids want to create with store-bought Nutter Butter cookies! You can change up the candy coating and use a different color, different sprinkles, you can use edible food safe markers to make super cool designs!


  
WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE NEEDED TO MAKE THESE GHOST COOKIES?

To make these Ghost cookies, all you need is candy coating (white), Nutter Butter peanut butter cookies, and either miniature semisweet chocolate chips OR large black sprinkles for the eyes. For our cookies, I used the black sprinkles since we already had those in our Pantry.

CAN YOU USE CANDY BARK TO MAKE THE NUTTER BUTTER GHOSTS?

Yes, you can either use white candy bark or white candy melts. It doesn’t matter. Both will work well.

HOW DO I MELT THE CANDY MELTS?

You can either melt them in the microwave following the directions on the back of the bag or you can use a double boiler to melt them. The more I use candy melts, I prefer to use a double boiler system.

HOW DO I KNOW I OVERHEATED THE CANDY COATING?

When it starts to clump up. You want the coating to be smooth and glossy.
