FAQ

  • Can I use a different type of cookie? While Nutter Butters offer the classic flavor, other sandwich cookies like Oreos can work in a pinch.
  • How do I store leftovers? Keep Nutter Butter Balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  • Can I freeze them? Yes! Freeze them in a single layer first, then transfer to a freezer-safe container for longer storage.
