National Dessert Day

   By CLOSETOHOME  Oct 20, 2011

After seeing the Spooky Claws in this month's  Family Fun Magazine I wanted to give them a try.  We never buy Nutter Butters so this was a fun excuse to have them in the house.  This is a great treat for a party, as long as peanuts are not a problem.



I purchased the bright green Wilton Chocolate Wafers since I thought they would be more Halloween like.  If you already have the dark green wafers from another project you could just add some white chocolate to lighten it up.


#1 Claws

We started by dipping the entire cookie but it was getting a little messy.  The majoirty of the cookies were just dipped to cover the top and sides.

Before they can dry add cashew pieces for the claws.  I did not have whole cashews but had some cashew pieces in my freezer so I just had to sift through them to find the right looking ones.


#2 Ghosts

I also thought Nutter butters were perfect for ghosts too.  I just dipped the cookies into melted white chocolate and added some eyes with wilton cookie icers.  I also tried some with chocolate chips to see how they turn out.   Think they work but love the other ones.


#3 Tombstones

Next my daughter suggested we make tombstones.   Made some with white but had some black food paste so I added it to the melted chocolate and came out with the grey tombstones.


Had some leftover eyes from the Scaredy Cat Brownies so I made an alien.  These would have been cute in the green if I had any left over.





Who would have thought so many cookies could have come out of just one store bought cookie.  Have fun with it, let the kids get creative too.


Push a lollipop stick into the cookies before the chocolate melts and make them into an edible centerpiece!!  Did not think of that until I started writing this post.  A platter of them will be just as pleasing to your goblins this Halloween.
