‘Tis the season for festive holiday treats and I’ve got an adorably easy tutorial for you! Grab some Nutter Butter cookies, we’re turning them into Rudolph reindeer treats for Christmas. I love working with Nutter Butter cookies because there’s no baking involved and the shape can be transformed into so many fun things, like Nutter Butter turkeys or snowmen! The possibilities are endless and you might just see a couple more Nutter Butter holiday ideas from me this season. I made this batch for a birthday, but I plan on making a second batch of reindeer for all the teachers and staff at my son’s school. They’d also make a great co-worker gift, just bag them up individually and add a ribbon. Easy, delicious and creative!

Step 1: Head to Walmart and get your ingredients. I found Nutter Butter cookies in the cookie aisle, on the top shelf. Don’t forget to grab the Nutter Butter coupon before you shop.

Step 2: Melt chocolate according to package. I recommend heating in the microwave in 30 second intervals, mixing in between until melted. Do not over melt. Dip Nutter Butter cookies in melted chocolate, using a fork and gently tapping excess chocolate off. Place on a piece of parchment paper.
