Nutter Butter Flip Flops!!!!

Posted on

 

These just make me smile!!  I’ve seen several versions of these recently on blogs and in stores and I had to try them- talk about quick and easy!  I have no idea who originally came up with this – but kudos in the creativity department!!!  Love ‘em!

INGREDIENTS: (printer friendly recipe)

  • One package of Nutter Butter Cookies (32 cookies)
  • 6 ounces each of Wiltons candy melts in 4 fun colors: Yellow Orange
    Blue Purple
  • Candy Flowers (I found mine at Michael’s Arts and Crafts)

DIRECTIONS:

  • Melt 7oz. (1/2 a bag) of each color of candy in 4 separate bowls in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between.
  • Dip one cookie at a time in the candy melts, covering it completely and then lifting it with a fork and tapping excess melted chocolate off.  Set on parchment paper to harden.


 

 

 

 

  • Spoon remainder of each color into small ziplock bags and clip a corner.  Using a contrasting color, carefully pipe a flip flop “strap” on each cookie.  
  • Add a candy flower or other candy decoration to strap before it hardens.
  • ENJOY!!!

My thoughts:  Quick easy and fun.  I’d love to serve them on brown sugar “sand” sometime…. Be sure you get the vanilla flavored chips– tastes just like white chocolate- even though its comes in such pretty colors.  The final result tastes a little like a Butterfingers (I think…)    Happy Summer to YOU!  -r

  10. I gave these a try this weekend for my daughter’s graduation party ~ in honor of their “beach week” after graduation … I didn’t have very good luck with the chocolate ~ it seemed too thick … it didn’t “run” off the cookies after dipping so I had to scrape some off each time with a spoon…they came out very cute in the end, but were not quick and easy as yours were, apparently!! Everyone at the party loved them and I’m getting really sweet comments on FB! Thanks so much for sharing such a cute idea!

    • Oh I’m so glad you gave them a try:). One of my coworkers said it was hard dipping at first but got easier as she practiced. There is definitely a technique- but these hard cookies are a great thing to practice with. I used a long-tined fork and tap it on the edge of the bowl until a lot of the chocolate drips through the tines and leaves just the coated cookie. Tell your daughter congratulations!!!!! I wish I had a beach week coming!!!!:)

      • even in your pictures here, your chocolate seems much thinner than mine got after melting!! nothing dripped. ever! and I made 7 different colors, I think…by the time I got to the 7th color, there were only 2 “pairs” instead of 4!!! =)

  15. These are so cute and perfect for Hawaii, where everyone wears flip flops all the time (well, actually they call them slippers, not flip flops). I’m going to have to make these for our next party!
