NILLA Flag Bites Recipe


  • 3 oz. red candy coating wafers
  • 1-1/2 tsp. oil, divided
  • 1 oz. blue candy coating wafers
  • 48 NILLA Wafers
  • 1/2 cup ready-to-spread white frosting
  • 1 oz. white candy coating wafers, melted


  • Microwave  red candy wafers and 1 tsp. oil in small microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 min. or until wafers are completely melted, stirring every 30 sec. Repeat in separate bowl with blue candy wafers and remaining oil.
  • Dip  top sides of 20 NILLA Wafers, 1 at a time, in melted red candy wafers; place, dipped sides up, in single layer on parchment-covered baking sheet. Repeat with 4 of the remaining NILLA Wafers and melted blue candy wafers. Let stand 10 min or until firm.
  • Spread  flat (bottom) sides of uncoated wafers with frosting; top with red- and blue-coated wafers, coated sides up, to make 24 wafer sandwiches. Arrange on platter as shown in photo to resemble US flag.
  • Spoon  melted white candy wafers into resealable plastic. Cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag; use to add dots to blue-coated wafers to resemble stars. Use remaining melted white wafers to add stripes. Refrigerate 5 min. or until firm.
