DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the Tic Tacs in half to form the chick's beak. Set aside.
  • Melt the candy coating as directed on the package. I use the microwave. If using white candy melts, add enough yellow food coloring to get a bright yellow tint.
  • Dip the Nutter Butter cookies in the melted candy coating, shake off the excess, then lay on the wax paper. Allow the coating to harden, about 10-20 minutes.
  • Pipe eyes on each chick. Add eyebrows or eye lashes if you like -- I think it gives them more personality.
  • Beak: Attach the beak using a bit of melted candy coating.
