  • 2 cups white candy melts
  • 1 cup light cocoa candy melts
  • 10 Nutter Butters
  • 5 graham crackers
  • 10 candy corn
  • 1/4 cup frosted mini wheats


  • In a small microwave-safe bowl, heat 2 cups of the white candy melts on 50% power for 3-4 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted and smooth. 
  • In another small microwave-safe bowl, heat 1 cup of the light cocoa candy melts on 50% power for 3-4 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted and smooth.
  • Dip a Nutter Butter in the melted white chocolate and use a spoon to fully coat, letting any excess drip off back to the bowl. Place coated cookies in a single layer on a parchment-lined work surface.
  • Place a piece of candy corn with the point facing down towards the bottom center of the nutter butter.
  • Break a couple pieces of graham cracker into a small rectangle and into a smaller square. Apply a little dab of melted chocolate on the back of the smaller piece of graham cracker and gently stick onto the larger rectangle to resemble a hat.
  • Carefully set the graham cracker “hat” onto the top of the Nutter Butter.
  • Break apart small pieces of frosted mini-wheats and stick on the front sides of the hat.
  • Freeze the cookies for about 10 minutes or until set.
  • Fill the decorating bag with melted cocoa candy melts and use to draw “eyes” below the hat, a wavy smile under the candy corn nose, and a line across the graham cracker hat.
  • Refrigerate for about 5 minutes or until cookies are set.
