Whether you need 25 little favors for your kid’s End of the School Year party or you want to make some sweet treats for those special teachers in your kid’s life…this tutorial is for you! Who wouldn’t love a cookie dressed up as a flip flop?! I’m using Nutter Butters in my tutorial but you’re welcome to use any other type of cookie that has a similar shape. (Just in case, peanuts are a big no-no at your school.)
Supplies needed to make your own end of the school year flip flop pops:
- Vanilla Flavored Melting Wafers (I used dark green, light blue, and yellow)
- Flip Flop Shaped Cookies (I used Nutter Butter)
- Lollipop Sticks
- Dipping Tools Set
- Clear Treat Bags (3×10)
- Disposable Decorating Bags
- Baker’s Twine
- Free Printable Labels
Step 1: Ok, first things first…you’re going to have to flatten one end of all the lollipop sticks (compare sticks below) so that they will fit better between the cookies. I found that my super heavy marble rolling pin worked amazingly well, but use anything heavy that you have hanging out in your kitchen. (Rolling pin, bowling ball, elephant…) 😀
- 2A. You can dip the cookies until completely covered in the candy coating, place on a rack, and then insert the lollipop stick through the end. Then, add a little bit more of the melted candy over the edge of the cookie to make sure the stick is secure.
- 2B. Separate a cookie, spoon a thin line of candy coating in the center of one side, lay down the stick, and then squeeze the two cookie sides together again. Allow to harden before dipping the whole pop back in the candy to coat completely.
Step 4: Trim the clear treat bags to size, pinch center and then secure with a small piece of Baker’s Twine and free printable Flip Flop Pops labels.
Let the Summertime fun begin!
