These little Nutter Butter Chicks are the cutest chicks around:) Fill your Easter basket with them or set up a fun-filled assembly line for the kids to have a creative afternoon. Tasty crafts are some of our favorites here at Smart School House, and these little cookies don’t disappoint. We are simply SO excited for Easter this year!
Nutter Butter Chicks
Aren’t these chicks adorable?! Made with Nutter Butter cookies, which are already hard to resist. Plus, these are very easy to make. This is a great Easter activity for the kids! Here is our TikTok video of us making them:
To make them, we used CandiQuik, which is simply chocolate made for melting. You can also use yellow candy melts. We happened to have the vanilla CandiQuick and yellow food coloring on hand. Additionally, you will need Nutter Butter cookies, Reese’s Pieces, and Peanut M&Ms. I used round black sprinkles for the eyes, but I also think that black gel icing would work too! The Nutter Butter Chick’s hair is also made with sprinkles.
Simply dip, decorate, and dry. I only dip 1/2 of the cookie in the melted chocolate so that it doesn’t overwhelm the taste of the Nutter Butter. Plus, it’s less messy (bonus!). As a tip: have all of your supplies and sprinkles set out in front of you and organized because the melted chocolate does harden quickly. Work over wax paper for the little chicks to dry without sticking.
