Frozen Themed Olaf Nutter Butter Cookies Recipe

There is just no denying the cuteness of these adorable Olaf Nutter Butter Cookies!

No matter how many years have passed since the movie Frozen was introduced to us all, our hearts still melt over the cute and adorable Olaf! These Olaf Nutter Butter Cookies are no exception and are the perfect holiday treat!

To be completely honest…nutter butter cookies on their own taste amazing. But, when you combine that flavor with the goofy grin of Olaf they are truly out of this world adorable.

Almost too adorable to eat…almost. (I’m certain we’ll find a way to overcome!)

Have a holiday cookie decorating day and don’t forget to add these cute cookies to your menu. Not only are they fun, but they also require no baking which is a total win in my book!

All you have to worry about is buying the cookies and the needed decorating items from the store, and you and your little ones are well on your way to creating these cute and adorable cookies.

The next time that it snows or someone in your house gets a hankering to watch the movie “Frozen”, make up a batch of these cute cookies to go right along with it!

How to Make These Halloween Snacks:

Line a baking sheet with waxed or parchment paper.

Melt chocolate chips in the microwave in 20-second increments, mixing after each, until smooth.

Add to a piping bag with a writing tip or simply use a plastic sandwich bag and snip a small edge off.

To make sure chocolate will stick to the brooms, add a small dot of chocolate to the paper then add the end of the pretzel stick on top to secure.

Start squeezing the bag in a back-and-forth motion at the end of the pretzel stick, forming the straw/bristles of the broom.  Then decorate your bristles with your favorite Halloween colored sprinkles.

Summer Fun Afternoon Tips

Creating the Perfect Summer Afternoon

The summer is dwindling down here in Florida, the kids only have 3 weeks left of school break and we are trying to cram in as much family fun as possible in before the first school bell rings.  One of our favorite things to do is to ride our bikes as a family to one of the local playgrounds.  We have such amazing bike trails here in Tampa Bay that a nice bike ride followed by a picnic and some time on the swings is a perfect way to spend an afternoon.
