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)!
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.
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.
