Nutter Butter Pea Pods

I confess … I’m a dork.  I know that I’m dorky because my sons have told me so … more than once!  Son #2 recently confirmed this fact … after I told him about this idea …

Peas be my Valentine

I thought that I was being cute and clever … it was just my dorkiness showing, once again … so I’ve been told.

Valentine’s Day is the perfect time for dorky little sayings … isn’t it?  I can’t be the only person that believes this … just read some Valentine’s Day cards!

This is what you will need …

Nutter Butter Peas

I wanted a lighter color of green candy, so I started with white and added green until I got the color I wanted.  Ratio – 2 parts white candy to 1 part green candy …

020  021

Note – 1 pound of candy will cover about 15 cookies.

Start by working on parchment paper or waxed paper …

Nutter Butter Valentine's Day

  1. Dip the Nutter Butter Cookie in melted green candy, tapping off all excess candy.  Lay on parchment.
  2. Add M&M’s and heart.  Chill for a few minutes.
  3. Use melted green candy (in squeeze bottle or pastry bag) to create “pea pod” opening … let candy harden up.
  4. Use edible marker to draw eyes and mouth on “peas”.
  5. Draw “pea” vines (green candy) on plate if desired ;)

We are like 2 peas in a pod

The good news … Son#2 is trying to come up with some different ideas using Nutter Butter cookies.  I think he is trying to save me from my own dorkiness ;)

I ♥ your comments!

P.S.  Regarding my previous project “Valentine Pretzels/Heartzels”  … I found an alternative for the Heartzels and posted the info on the Heartzels page.

  4. Dinaz says:

    If you are a dork, I think dorks are awesome!!! These are just too cute for words. And would work beautifully for a baby shower as well!!! Keep up the dorkiness!!!!!

    I think that was a very cute idea and I don’t think it was dorky at all

  6. Tavette says:

    Thanks for mentioning how many cookies you can cover with 1 lb. chocolate. Takes the guessing out of it for us.

    Dinaz mentioned using the pea pods for a Baby shower….you could sit the Nutter Butters in a vertical position and decorate them (using the technique you did to make it look like an open pod to now look like a blanket) Whala……a new baby wrapped in a blanket.

    Valentines – decorate the Nutter Butters to look like a giant set of lips.

    We shall await your photos (of these ideas – should you accept the challenge :) as you’re Her Majesty of the Nutter Butters.

  7. Come on, Brenda, we’re parents. We’re gonna be dorky, no matter what. The question is, did the boy eat them?

    I also am somewhat dorky as well, cause I think these are cute and very clever. Guess we are all in good company anyway. :}
