Nutter Butters are one of my all-time favorite cookies. I know it may not be so popular these days since it has peanuts in the ingredients. If someone you know has nut allergies you could replace this cookie with a regular sandwich cookie to be safe.

In this no-bake recipe wear going to use a premade sandwich cookie and dip it into chocolate and use icing to draw a baby chick. You can also use candy eyes for the eyes and coated candies like M& M’s for the beak. In this recipe we just used icing.
