Nutter Butter Polar Bear Cookies

Who doesn’t love to make cute animals out of food?! I know I do!! One of my absolute favorite cookies is a Nutter Butter. I remember when I was little, my grandma use to always bring me a pack home when she got off work. One of the many memories that made my childhood wonderful. Anywho, I have been enjoying this fabulous cookie for a long time. I always look at them and think how they would make sure a cute animal, which one I’m not sure, but it would be super cute. Then I chop off the “head” and that idea goes away.

Now that I am older and have kids of my own, we always love to make fun crafts and recipes and if they can help, that makes the recipe even more awesome. Well, my youngest has the same fascination with this delicious cookie as I do. She came up to me one day and said ” Moma, these look just like a polar bear”.  At that moment, my childhood flashed before my eyes!! That was the animal I always thought these cookies looked like! With that being said, we went off to the kitchen to start developing our cute little polar bears! This cookie is perfect for kids parties, gatherings, or just to have on family night.
