Flip Flop Cookies presents these cookies that are not only adorable there is NO baking involved:


1 Box Graham Cracker Crumbs

2 packages oblong cookies, such as Pepperidge Farms Milano cookies

1 Tub vanilla frosting

Neon food coloring

Licorice Sticks (in a variety of colors)



1. Scatter graham cracker crums on a large platter (for sand)

2.  Divide vanilla frosting into bowls.  Use food coloring to create bright colors.

3. Ice the cookies.  Cut licorie sticks into half lenghtwise, then into 1-inch strips.

4. Arrange the licorice on the cookies into a “V” shape to resemble the straps of flip-flops.    Where the licorice sticks meet, top with a gumdrop, using a dab of frosting to get them to stick.
