I love these Nutter Butter Easter Chicks. They are a super-cute, semi-homemade treat for your little bunnies' Easter baskets. We had so much fun making these and then of course gobbled them up! Nutter Butter Easter Cookies are simple to prepare and taste delicious. This is a yummy no bake Easter treat!
Do NOT use liquid food coloring for these cookies. You need to use an oil based food coloring (you can purchase at Michael's. I like the Wilton brand). Another option is using the Wilton Candy Melts which is what I used.
