Flip Flop Cookies!

These are Flip Flop Cookies I made last summer for the BOCES classroom I worked in as an aide. They'd be great for a child's summer birthday party. If you frosted them with red, white, and blue, they would also be good for a 4th of July picnic!

  • Vienna Cookies
  • Frosting
  • Food Coloring
  • Gummie worms
Note about ingredients: The bulk section gummie worms are better than the pre-packaged ones. They are thicker and hold their shape better. Also, the regular white canned frosting is better than the "fluffy" canned frosting. Fluffy kind is not stiff enough to hold the gummie worms up.

Split gummy worms down the center (Pampered Chef kitchen scissors are a wonderful tool!) Kitchen shears work best, but carefully using a sharp knife may work as well. (Be sure not to split it completely in half! It still needs to be together at one end!)

Color your white frosting by mixing in food coloring. (I chose blue.)

Frost the top of a Vienna Cookie with the colored frosting. Then place the gummie worm on the frosted cookie and arrange to look like flip flop straps. The frosting should act as "glue" to stick it on. Repeat for the second "flip flop".

You are "supposed" to serve the cookies on graham cracker crumbs so it looks like "sand". (Waste of good graham crackers I thought though!)
