We have a thing about making Nutter Butters into other cute seasonal cookies. We have made turkeys, snowmen, and even chicks! This year for a good friend of ours, we decided to try making some penguins!

I gathered the need ingredients: Nutter Butters, white candy melts, black candy melts (could use dark chocolate too), mini M&Ms, and for beaks I went with these awesome Starburst minis (I had no clue these existed, but I am happy I know now)!

I cut the orange Starburst minis diagonally to get two triangular beaks out of each one. Then we started by dipping the Nutter Butters in the white candy melts and adding the eyes and beaks.


After letting them dry, I let the girls break off the extra chocolate from the edges (and eat it).

I had planned on doing the next part, but the girls insisted that they do it, so they did! I melted the black candy melts (which surprisingly don’t have that bad black food coloring flavor) and the girls rolled the edges of each cookie in it. I think next time we will wait and put the eyes on after the black candy melts (and therefore on the black part of the cookie); that way they won’t get half covered with chocolate.

And here are our finished penguins! The girls were thrilled with their creations; each one a unique little cookie made with lots of love!
And our penguin loving friend adored them! Especially the blue eyed ones!

Ashley is classic strong-willed child, she fulfilled her lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian in 2005 only to realize a new dream had formed, having a family with her husband (another strong-willed child).  After much heartache, they were blessed with 2 daughters and a son, who are all proving to be just as spirited as their parents! Though she is still working part-time, she fills her days off with fun activities and lots of learning with her three kids.  And this is where the blog comes in, Life with Moore Babies is where she documents the activities they do and the places they go in hopes that someone might be inspired to do some “fun learning” with their kids. You can find Ashley on Facebook, Pinterest, Google +, and Twitter.

  • These are so adorable! I had no idea mini-starbursts existed either. I love using starburts to make small fondant-like decorations for cakes or cupcakes. Thanks for sharing!

    • They are way better then the big ones too. Softer and much easier to get to!

  • So cute!!! I am obsessed with penguins!! lol

    • They are pretty cute little things! My youngest currently is obsessed too!

    Oh, these are just too cute! Yum!

  • This is a great idea! I've made other animals with the Nutter Butters…but a penguin would go over well in our house! And it's a good excuse to buy more Nutter Butters! Thanks for sharing on Kids in the Kitchen!

    • Definitely good for the Nutter Butter Lovers! Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh, those are so cute!! Thank you for sharing at Sharing Saturday!

  • These are super cute! Thank you for sharing at the After School Link Up this week.

  • Oh my goodness, I wish I had seen these while we were still doing our penguin unit. A couple of weeks ago we made penguin Rice Krispies, but I'm sure the girls would have loved these too. Fortunately I still have 2 young children that will have to go through our MFW curriculum and we will be doing Penguins again.

    I would love if you would stop by and share on my weekly recipe linky, Kids and a Mom in the Kitchen
    Have a great evening.
