The original idea for these cookies came from Family Fun – but I don’t remember them dipping the cookies in chocolate.
We started out by adding a bit of Peanut Butter to the inside of a nutter butter cookie so there is room to fit a popsicle stick inside. Then we dipped the cookie on a stick in melted chocolate chips, which turned out to be a whole lot harder than it sounds – the sticks kept falling out and mom and dad had to take over.
We put the chocolate covered cookies on foil and let the kids decorate, then stuck them in the fridge to harden up a bit. While taking the reindeer off the foil we had some antler malfunctions, as you can see above.
The original idea also called for a dot of white frosting topped with mini chocolate chips for eyes, but we just used what we had. 🙂
