These super easy leprechaun cookies are the perfect kids craft for Saint Patrick’s Day. Adorable little leprechaun Nutter Butter cookies are as much fun to make as they are to eat! They are no bake and only have 4 ingredients.
Nutter Butter Cookies
1 package of CandiQuick Vanilla
Black decorating gel
Melt the CandiQuick according to package directions. Divide into two bowls. Color one bowl green and one bowl orange adding one drop at a time to your color darkness preference. Dip one side of the Nutter Butter cookie into the orange coating and drag some up the sides of the cookie to make sideburns using a spoon or a toothpick. Dip the other end of the cookie into the green coating to make a hat, covering the top of the sideburns. Place the candy covered cookies onto a piece of wax paper and allow to dry completely, about 20 minutes. Once dry use the gel to draw in a hat brim and a face. For added fun dress your leprechauns up with sprinkles or candy eyes!
