Scarecrow nutter butters are the cutest fall treat. Easy to make for a crowd to place on a dessert platter at Thanksgiving. Super adorable to add to a Fall charcuterie board.
Make these with just a few ingredients. Shredded wheat, Nutter Butters, Ghirardelli’s white chocolate, candy corn, candy eyes, and graham crackers. Some orange candy melts and Wilton’s sparkle gel as well.
Firstly melt the white chocolate wafers as directed on the bag. Dip the nutter butters into the white chocolate and place onto a sheet of freezer paper with the shiny side up.
Parchment paper will work as well. Secondly, quickly start to add the candy eyes and the candy corn nose. Add the graham cracker for the hat. Place the shredded wheat along side the hat.
The idea is anything that needs to stick and stay needs to be placed before the chocolate dries. Get the eyes, nose, hat, and hair onto the scarecrow.
Draw on the mouth of the scarecrow cookies with black sparkle gel. Thirdly using some candy melts place a second piece of graham cracker onto the hat.
Let the scarecrow nutter butters dry before serving. The scarecrow cookies are really perfect for Thanksgiving. Serve them up with fruit and vegetables with seasonal colors.
I do my best not to stack these when serving as the gel likes to not dry fully. Additionally, I make these the same day or one day ahead for best results.
