Now that we have finished up our Thanksgiving celebrations (read: ate way too much delicious food), Christmas is in full swing at my house. We’ve already trimmed the tree and put our Christmas lights on the house. Our Homeowner’s Association only allows you to decorate one month before the holiday, so my husband was determined to get the most enjoyment out of our lights and outdoor decor as possible! 🙂
Holidays have been so fun this year because Sophia is finally at an age where she is old enough to participate and be excited about all of the fun festivities. One of my personal favorite traditions this time of year is decorating cookies with the girls. I’ve long since accepted the fact that I will never be a professional cookie decorator, so I’m always looking for out of the box ideas that don’t require perfect piping skills to make cookie decorating fun. What’s more fun than decorating with a ton of sprinkles? These no-bake Nutter Butter Christmas Light Cookies were a big hit with the girls!
- 16oz package of Nutter Butter Cookies
- 8oz of vanilla candy coating (or almond bark)
- silver sprinkles
- colorful sprinkles (such as red, blue, green, and yellow)
Head to Walmart and get your ingredients. I found Nutter Butter cookies in the cookie aisle, on the middle shelf. Don’t forget to grab the Nutter Butter coupon before you shop.
Melt candy coating according to package. I recommend heating in the microwave in 30 second intervals until melted. Be sure to stir well between heating; do not over melt. Dip only the top of each Nutter Butter cookie in the melted candy. Place on a piece of parchment paper and immediately cover in silver sprinkles. Work quickly because the candy coating sets up and begins to harden immediately.
After all of the tops have been decorated, and allowed to dry, shake off any excess sprinkles. Next, dip the bottom half of each cookie into the melted candy. Set on parchment paper and immediately cover in colored sprinkles, again working quickly.
Allow the cookies to dry. Once the white coating has fully set, gently shake off any excess sprinkles. These would be super cute packaged up as giftable homemade treats.
