  4. Place onto your baking sheet and add two yellow M&M’s towards to top for eyes.
  5. Transfer to the freezer for 10 minutes when all your Nutter Butters are covered.
  6. While the Grinch cookies are setting melt a cup of the cocoa melts in the microwave on 50% power for 2-3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.

  7. Remove Grinch cookies from the freezer.

Recipe Notes

If you don't want to use a decorating bag you can purchase food decorator pens and draw the face on that way.

A 16 ounce package of Nutter Butter cookies should have around 32 cookies inside.
