Recipe: Nutter Butter Football Cookies



  • 1 package Nutter Butter cookies
  • 12 oz chocolate candy melts
  • Wax paper

Royal icing ingredients

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 C powder sugar
  • ½ tsp cream of tartar



  1. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
  2. Tape down the sides and ends of the wax paper to the cookie sheet.
  3. Using a double boiler melt the chocolate melts, stir often until all of the chocolate is melted.
  4. With a fork dip each cookie into the melted chocolate.
  5. If necessary use a spoon to spread the chocolate over the entire cookie both front and back.
  6. Place the dipped chocolate cookies on the lined cookie sheet.
  7. Allow them to dry completely about 20+ minutes.

Royal Icing:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl mixing on medium speed for 4 minutes.
  2. If icing isn’t stiff enough, you’ll want to add 1/4 cup powder sugar until stiff.
  3. Spoon the icing into piping bags using a #2 tip OR a plastic baggie with a corner snipped (make the hole small!).

Add the stitching on the footballs:

  1. Following the examples in the picture above use the icing to make lines on each end of the cookies.
  2. Draw the lines in a curved shape not just a straight line.
  3. In the center of the cookie make a draw a short line and then cross this line with three small lines.
  4. Allow to dry completely.
