If you’re like me and have a large extended family (and friends we consider family), buying expensive Christmas gifts for every single person on our list is out of the question. However, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to create an awesome holiday experience or to show the special people in your life that they’re loved.
One of our favorite, affordable gifts is the gift of food: over the years my husband has baked cookies, cheesecake bars, and even made chocolate covered strawberries. I’ve been on a chocolate-dipping kick this Fall, and continuing with this easy (and delicious) idea, I decided to make Nutter Butter snowmen cookies. Since it is still football season, and my family LOVES to cheer on our favorite team, Lilu and I dressed up our snowmen with football helmets and the team colors of blue and gold.
This is such an easy “recipe,” which is why it is perfect to do with the kids. I handled all the chocolate-melting, but Lilu was more than capable of dipping and decorating on her own, and had a blast doing so!
Here’s what you need to make Nutter Butter Snowmen Football Players:
- 16oz package NUTTER BUTTER Cookies
- White melting chocolate
- Dark melting chocolate
- Decorating Icing
Start by preparing the white melting chocolate according to the directions on the package. (An adult should do this part; make sure to use a microwave-safe bowl (if using the microwave) and to handle with caution as it could be hot.)
I then made a small bowl of melted dark chocolate. We dipped the top of the snowmen (make sure the white chocolate is dry) to make their old-school style football helmets. We used a toothpick dipped in chocolate for the detail work on the face mask.
Decorating icing in blue and gold allowed us to add our team colors and initials to our Nutter Butter Snowmen. The finished product was adorable and tasted amazing (of course we had to do a taste test!)
