Nutter Butter Frankenstein Cookies

Hi friends! Are you ready for another Halloween cookie? I’m telling you, these candy dipped cookies are addicting! After a not-so-successful attempt at Zombie cookies, these Frankenstein Cookies were calling to me.

Frankenstein Cookies

These were so much easier than the Zombies, but still had their challenges. I’d like to think in time, my decorating skills will improve. Hey, at least I’m learning!

These Frankenstein Cookies start with bright green Candy melts!

Melt them in a glass bowl according to the directions on the package. They will look like this when you take them out of the microwave, but once you start stirring them they will melt and become smooth and dippable!

Using two forks, I dipped the cookies into the candy melts and covered them completely. When they’re covered, gently tap the forks on the side of the bowl to let the excess drip off. This will work much better if the candy melts are very warm. When you’re done, place the coated cookies on parchment or wax paper to dry.

Now comes the fun part! Let’s give these cookies some character!

The noses are candy-coated mini M&M’s. Next time, I would pipe a nose. Dipping the tiny little M&M’s was a pain! Ahhh well, I learned, right? The hair was made from black candy melts.

Nutter Butter Frankenstein Cookies

Cute and totally customizable Frankenstein Cookies to make with the kids (or grandkids!)

  • 12 Nutter Butter Cookies
  • 12 oz bag Bright Green Vanilla flavored Wilton Candy Melts
  • 12 oz bag Black Wilton Candy Melts
  • 24 Candy eyeballs

Line a large baking sheet or workspace with parchment paper and set aside.

Place 6 oz bright green candy melts in a medium, microwave safe bowl.

Melt on 50% power for 1 minute, then stir. Return to microwave for 30 second intervals until candy is completely melted and smooth.

Using a fork, carefully dip cookies into the candy melts and with a small spatula cover the entire cookie on all sides. Tap the fork lightly against the side of the bowl to get rid of excess coating before placing the cookie on parchment paper to set. Repeat with remaining cookies.

If you are working in a cold kitchen, or this process takes too long, the candy melts will begin to harden. If this happens, simply return the bowl to the microwave for 30 seconds or more to warm them up again.

Once the cookies are cooled, melt the black candy melts in a microwave safe bowl or in a Wilton Candy Decorating Bag. Pipe hair, nose and mouth on your cookies. Be creative! Give the Frankenstein cookies some character!

Use a bit of extra candy melts to adhere the candy eye balls to your Frankenstein cookies

Allow cookies to harden completely before serving.

Store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to three days.
