These are my favorite go-to treat for summer parties, beach parties, luau’s, barbecues or anytime I need a quick cute and easy dessert. They are so easy to make and the Flip Flop Nutter Butters just turn out so dang cute! I also really like making the edible sand for underneath the Nutter Butter Flip Flop Cookies. It is so much fun to see people trying to guess what it is made of. I have to say I have yet to have anyone guess correctly.

How to make Flip Flop Cookie Nutter Butter
I used the pre-filled Cupcake Icing canisters that come with the icing tips. I used the waffle weave tip to make the straps of the flip-flops and the star for the flower on top. You can also use cute flower sprinkles and decorations for these. I found some great flowers around Easter so I bought a few extra containers to have on hand all summer when I make these.
When using the cans of premade icing make sure and test them out on a paper towel or napkin first. The first few times I went to use them they squirted all over the place. It took a few tries to get them to come out evenly. I try to keep lots of paper towels and napkins on hand since the bright colors of the icing can stain your fingers.
How to make Edible Sand
One of my favorite ways to serve these super cute Easy Flip Flop Nutter Butter Cookies is on a bed of edible sand. I wanted to display the Flip Flop Nutter Butters in a really cute way for the party. I made sand out of Rice Krispies Cereal and Brown Sugar. I used my Bullet Blender to break the Rice Krispies and Brown Sugar into fine grains and spread them over my platter. Pulse the cereal mixture a few times so you get all different textures in the sand. This helps make it look even more realistic.
This edible sand would work great for cake decorating too!
