You only need a few things to make these little Spring Chick Nutter Butters and, they only take a few steps! Way easy recipe!
Here is the list:
- Nutter Butter Cookies (Of Course, but you can always opt for homemade or go nut-free with Pepperidge Farm Milano Cookies!)

Making these Spring Chick Nutter Butters come to live is almost as easy as reading this post. Here is how you do it:
- Line a sheet pan with wax paper.
- Heat the yellow candy melts until melted. If it is too thick, add 1 tbs of coconut oil or vegetable shortening. DO NOT ADD WATER.
- Drop the cookies one at a time, into the melted candy and turn them so they are evenly coated. I like to use this candy dipper to fish the out.
- Lay them on the lined sheet pan and shower them in your sprinkles! You’ll want to do this pretty quick, before the candy sets.
- Gently add the candy eyes, beak, wings and feet. (If you feel like you are pushing too hard, a toothpick or tweezers may help.
- And, repeat!
- Let them set and store them in an airtight container of your choice!
This a fun recipe to with kids. It is also a fun way to celebrate Spring. Think about how cute these Spring Chicks would look popping out of those plastic eggs on Easter!
