  • 12 Nutter Butter cookies
  • 1/2 cup Yellow Candy Melting Chips
  • 3-4 Orange Starburst
  • 24 Mini Chocolate Chips


  • Cut Starburst into 3 rectangular strips (1/4" x 3/4")
  • Cut each of those in half, creating 6 - 1/4" x 3/8" rectangles.
  • Now cut each of those diagonally creating 12 triangles for beaks.
  • You are going to repeat this process on the other 2 Starbursts to create 24 triangles that you will make 2 cuts in each and separate to make toes on the feet.
  • Set beaks and feet aside.
  • Heat Yellow Candy Chips by microwaving for 30 seconds stirring and repeating until melted. Allow to cool for 2-3 minutes.
  • Lay cookie in melted candy and spoon mixture over cookie to coat completely.
  • Carefully remove from candy so the cookie doesn't come apart, and let excess candy drip off.
  • Lay cookie on wax paper.
  • Place mini chocolate chips for eyes.
  • Place beaks and feet.
  • Refrigerate to set chocolate.
