Nutter Butter Referees

Make the right call with this quick treat for March Madness. Nutter Butter Referees cookies are dipped in white chocolate and dressed up as referees.

Course Dessert
Cuisine American
Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Yield 20 cookies


  • 20 Nutter Butter cookies
  • 4 ounces vanilla candy coating (found at Walmart or craft stores)
  • black frosting
  • edible candy eyes


  1. Melt vanilla candy coating according to package instructions.
  2. Dip the lower half of each Nutter Butter cookie in the coating and place on wax paper to set.
  3. Once the coating has set, draw 4 black vertical lines down the vanilla candy coating. You can use a Wilton #46 tip or you can use a re-sealable plastic bag with the corner cut off.
  4. Adhere the candy eyes with frosting and draw a mouth and hair on each of the referees using a Wilton #2 or a re-sealable plastic bag filled with frosting with the corner cut off.

Recipe Notes

I like using Candiquik coating but you can use whatever vanilla coating or almond bark you can find.
