The Lorax Nutter Butter Cookies

The Lorax Nutter Butter Cookies

We’ve been reading Dr. Seuss books to our son since he was a baby. Now, one of his favorite books is The Lorax. To celebrate Dr. Seuss’ Birthday this year, I made these The Lorax Nutter Butter Cookies featuring Andrew’s favorite character.

These would be perfect to take to school for Read Across America Day on March 3rd, the day after Dr. Seuss’ Birthday. They’re really easy to make — you just need a few ingredients  and very little skill. The hardest part was drawing the mustaches, but with some practice, I was able to draw them easily.

Nutter Butter Cookies
Yellow Candy Melts
Orange Candy Melts
Candy Eyes
Orange Mini M&Ms (or other candy)
Wax Paper


Melt the orange candy melts according to package directions.

Dip each Nutter Butter in the orange candy melts until fully coated, then tap on the side of the bowl to remove excess.

Set on wax paper and add candy eyes and an orange M&M for the nose. Allow the candy to harden.

Meanwhile, melt the yellow candy melts according to package directions, and add to a piping bag fitted with a small tip (I used a #2 tip).

On the wax paper, draw the shape of large mustaches with the yellow candy melts and fill them in. Do the same for eyebrows for each eye. Allow to harden completely.

Peel the eyebrows and mustaches from the wax paper and use a toothpick to add a dab of orange candy melts to the back of the eyebrows and mustaches. Attach them to the front of each marshmallow pop. Allow to harden and serve as desired.

NOTE: The mustaches and eyebrows are *very* delicate. Handle with care!
