Harvest Indian Corn Cookies

We start these cookies with your classic Nutter Butters cookie.  You can choose a similar generic version if you prefer, just make sure it has the same shape.  To create the colored coating, we prefer using Wilton brand candy melts.  They offer the best quality and consistency when melted for dipping or decorating.  If you are good with food color and basic almond bark, you may be able to duplicate these colors on your own.

This recipe fits into our 25 Easy Fall Entertaining Ideas perfectly!  Check out the other ideas listed here to create a dessert table for your harvest party that will be great for everyone.

Ingredients for Indian Corn Harvest Cookies:
