Hi friends! I’ve been busy making plans for my teenage daughter’s birthday. She wants to keep it pretty simple and invite just a few close friends, but a party’s a party, and I want the girls to have some fun snacks to enjoy. So, the kids and I made these cute flip flop cookies to serve at the party.
These sweet treats are so easy to make, and they would be perfect addition to just about any summer celebration!
Summer is all about casual fun, and what’s more casual than wearing flip flops? Actually, I love flip flops, and I wear them practically all year round, except when it’s super cold out. And in the desert, there aren’t that many snow days!
These treats start out with store bought peanut butter cookies that are dipped in candy coating and embellished with a little more candy. I know that sounds like it may be too sugary, but you get a salty and sweet combination that the kids love. Well, I love them too!
- Nutter Butter cookies
- Candy melts in summer colors
- Twizzler Pull and Peel candy
We found that it was easier to add the candy to the cookies when the coating was starting to firm up but not fully dry. Otherwise, the straps just slid right off.
When the flip flop cookies were done, I arranged them on a plate and added a bunch of Skittles in the middle. One of the kids thought it looked like a beach ball, and I guess it kind of does!
So, if you’re looking for a quick and easy summer treat, you can whip up a bunch of these flip flop cookies in no time at all. But be sure to make as many as you can because they go fast!
Thanks so much for visiting, and have a sunny day!
