Race Car Cookies

My kids attend AWANA every week and really have a great time learning Bible verses.  Once a year, the kids have the option to participate in a Pine Car Derby Race.  Most of the kids opt-in and create fantastic cars.  A snack is always served on race night.  In the past we’ve served either hot dogs, popcorn or cookies.

Racecar Cookies for Awana or Cub Scouts

I received the Berenstain Bears Country Cookbook after the race – but I found these adorable Race Car Cookies on page 90.  I am definitely making them for next year’s derby race!


You’ll Need:

  • Nutter Butter Bars
  • Mini Twix (or whatever little square candy you’d like to use)
  • Spree Candies
  • Chocolate Frosting



  • Unwrap Nutter Butter Bars, Twix and Spree Candies
  • Fill a sandwich-sized Ziploc with about ½ a cup of chocolate frosting, seal and snip a tiny triangle off one bottom corner.
  • Turn a Nutter Butter on its side and put a pea-sized dot of frosting about half an inch from the top and bottom.  Push one Spree candy on each dot.  Do the same thing to the other side of the ‘car’.
  • ‘Glue’ the Twix candy to the top of the car by applying a bit of frosting to the Twix and pressing it onto the Nutter Butter bar.
  • Make as many Race Car Cookies as you’d like.
  • Serve and ENJOY!

Racing Cookies

Would you make Race Car Cookies?



  1. So adorable Sara!!! Love these and will have to make them soon!

  2. Any idea on a nut-free substitute?

  3. Saw those but Twix and M&M’s are not nut safe 🙁

  4. Our grocery store has chocolate covered caramels – those might work in place of the Twix on top of these cars.

  5. Janet W. says:

    That is the cutest! My grandsons would love to make these and would REALLY enjoy eating them!

  6. Julie Wood says:

    These are so cute and my nephew would love to make these when he comes over! I will have to get the items so he can make these and we can eat them!

  7. Birdiebee says:
