Nutter Butter Santa cookies

straw (4 of 4)This cookie adds a jolly spirit to your christmas cookie platters, but making them can be time consuming . . . make sure you have plenty of time if you want to tackle these.

1 package of Nutter Butter cookies (for body)
1 bag of white chocolate chips (for hat& beard)
red sugar sprinkles (for hat)
red cinnamon dots (for nose)
candy balls or sprinkles (for eyes)

straw (1 of 1)

straw (1 of 1)-2

Set aside 1 chocolate chip for each nutter butter cookie (it will be the pom pom on the tip of santa’s hat)
Melt the remaining bag in the microwave with about 1/2 T coconut oil or crisco (follow melting recipe on the back of the bag)
Dip the top of a cookie into the chocolate and place on wax paper.
While the chocolate is still wet, add sprinkles across the top, leaving a white strip at the bottom for the brim of the hat.
Place a chocolate chip on the right hand  lower corner of the hat.
Using a chopstick or a wooden skewer, dab melted chocolate onto the face for eyes and nose and put candy in place.
When the hat has dried, lift the saints up, and dip sideways into the melted chocolate to form his beard.

I like how each santa has its own face and expression.
