  • 8 ½ cups Fruity Pebbles cereal or other colorful puffed rice cereal

4. Nutter Butter Chicks

Ingredients:

  • 16 Nutter Butter sandwich cookies
  • 12 ounces yellow candy melts or 12 ounces white chocolate candy melts, with
  • yellow food coloring (must be an oil-based coloring)

  • black decorating gel (eyes) or icing (eyes)
  • wax paper

Directions:

  1. Cut the Tic Tacs in half to form the chick’s beak. Set aside.
  2. Melt the candy coating as directed on the package. I use the microwave. If using white candy melts, add enough yellow food coloring to get a bright yellow tint.
  3. Dip the Nutter Butter cookies in the melted candy coating, shake off the excess, then lay on the wax paper. Allow the coating to harden, about 10-20 minutes.
  4. Pipe eyes on each chick. Add eyebrows or eye lashes if you like — it gives them more personality.
