Flip Flop Cookies~ a Recipe Revisited!

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.

Acorn Candies

These adorable little acorns are a perfect edible decoration for your fall table!

INGREDIENTS:

  • One bag of Hershey milk chocolate kisses (unwrapped)
  • One bag of mini Nutter Butter cookies
  • 1/4c. (or less) of Wilton Dark Candy Cocoa Melts
  • About 35-40 peanut butter baking chips

 

DIRECTIONS:

  • Melt candy melts in the microwave in 30 second increments until smooth.
  • Dip the base of a kiss in the chocolate, wiping off excess against side of bowl and place on top of a Nutter Butter cookie.
  • Allow chocolate to harden.
  • Repeat this step with the peanut butter chips.  (I found that when you press the chip on the top of the cookie it doesn’t slide off even though it has to sit at an angle.)
  • Allow chocolate to harden and serve!!!!

My thoughts:  What is it with acorn cookies this fall??  I just couldn’t resist trying these and then they were so cute I just had to share them with all of you! 

I always Google my recipe ideas when I try them to see how original I’ve actually been.  When I Googled my last recipe for peanut butter acorn cookies I saw this idea ALL OVER the place and I loved them SO much!  Easy and adorable!!!! *love*
