Have you heard about Nutter Butters? It’s a sandwich cookie with a peanut butter filling with just enough peanut butter to satisfy your taste buds. I had some extra Nutter Butters so instead of leaving it as is, I decided to spice it up and dip it chocolate, and made it more festive by adding red and green sprinkles. It was pretty simple and it’s also another great treat to give for Christmas.
To thin out the chocolate, I used 1 tablespoon of shortening for every 12 oz of candy melts. There is an after taste, but it’s not noticeable to the non baker, but it was to me. Honestly I would love to purchase a different ingredient that has no flavor, but I try not to make it a habit to run to the market and get the ingredients. I just like to plan what I purchase. I used to do that all the time and I ended up throwing out many ingredients because it expired or I forgot I had it.
Then I dipped it in chocolate, added the sprinkles, and laid it on wax paper, simple right?
Do you like spicing up your cookies? If so, how?
