Recipe Tips

Jazz it UpTo add bodies to the cats' heads, prepare recipe as directed. Melt additional 1/3 cup black candy coating wafers as directed; spread onto tops of 12 additional NUTTER BUTTER Cookies. Let stand 5 min. or until firm. Cut 12-inch-long piece of black string licorice into 12 (1-inch) lengths. Insert one end of each licorice piece into filling in each of the cookies. Dip tops of 48 mini chocolate-coated candies in remaining melted candy melts. Place, dipped sides up and in 12 groups of 4 candies each, on parchment-covered baking sheet. Top with cookies. Let stand 5 min. Stand each cat head on its side and place at end of each cat body.
