Flip Flop Cookies~ a Recipe Revisited!

RR Header

I’m excited to be back for day #2 of our walk down memory lane!  Today’s treat just had to make the list of fun and colorful recipes to revisit.  It’s not only fun and colorful, but the perfect summer treat…

Flip Flop RR card

This recipe was originally published during my first summer of blogging, on June 11, 2011.  It is particularly memorable for me because it was my first photo published on Foodgawker.  If you even knew how hard I was trying at the time to get a photo accepted on that site….oh my.  I’m very competitive and I had about 60 photos rejected before this one.  I was jumping up and down for joy!  I took this photo at my friends Tom and Tina’s house at the lake.  I knew the lighting was perfect that day and I pulled my little point and shoot out to snap some photos.  Tom suggested I try his higher-end camera and Tina popped that pretty orange flower in the background and I learned two things:  1.Staging food is a must in photography and  2. I needed a better camera.

Since that date I’ve had 55 photos accepted on Foodgawker and SO many rejected.  It has been so good for me to have outside judgement on my photography though.  It is making me better.  Will today’s photo be accepted?  I think not.  I’m not happy with the exposure in any of the pictures, but we will see!

These are white chocolate dipped Nutter Butter cookies (in case you were wondering!)  Originally dipped in rainbow colors, these are dipped in patriotic red, white and blue and garnished with a little star sprinkle.  Serving them on brown sugar gives them a beach feel.  These are a perfect summer treat and really easy to make.

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
