Our Little Peanut Baby Shower Cookie Pops: The no bake perfect dessert or party favor for a peanut themed baby shower.
By grinding up nutter butter cookies and adding cream cheese you get a nice peanut butter flavor with a creamy center. Creating these fun pops for a baby shower was so much fun. I also made some Sweet Peanut Baby Shower Party Favors to go with the theme. What’s great about these pops is they can also be made for a circus party or an animal party.
