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 a basic almond bark, you may be able to duplicate these colors on your own.

Directions for Harvest Indian Corn Cookies
4. Hold the lollipop sticks Nutter Butters over the melted yellow chocolate, dip the cookie in and let any excess drip off and set back onto the parchment paper.
5. Place 3 vertical rows of brown, yellow and orange M&M’s vertically onto the yellow chocolate covered Nutter Butters, rotating colors and transfer to the freezer for 15 minutes to harden.
6. In a small microwave-safe bowl, heat 1 cup of your green candy melts on 50% power for 2-3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Pour into a decorating bag and cut a tiny tip off the end of the bag.
7. Use your decorating bag of green candy melts to draw green leaf like shapes to look like the husk of the corn on a piece of parchment paper. Transfer to the freezer for 5 minutes to harden.
8. Carefully peel your husk leaves off and add a dab of melted chocolate onto the bottom of husk leaf and carefully press onto the back of the Nutter Butter and let harden.
