Nutter Butter Reindeer


These cute Reindeer Nutter Butter cookies are a super easy way to make a festive treat for the holidays. We made these the other day and handed them out to all the neighbors. Everyone kept remarking at how they were too cute to eat.

It only took me a few minutes to make them. I made them during naptime and by the time my boys woke up, they were ready to eat! I got the eyes and the melting chocolate at Michaels and the other three items at the grocery store.
