Nutter Butter Flip Flop Cookies

Omgosh, I finally get to sit done and write a blog post!! I just got a new job and last week on Sunday was my birthday. :) :) :) Things have been going very well. Once everything has settled down for me I'll be able to update more often. Until then I'll be updating ever Sunday (don't hold me to that)!

Today I have a simple (so very simple) recipe. Nutter Butter Flip Flop Cookies! It's a yummy treat and again, so very easy to make!

You will need:
1 package of Nutter Butters
2 Packages of White Chocolate Chips 
Zip lock bags (or piping bags/tools)
Vegetable Shortening
Parchment Paper
Sprinkles or any other editable decorations (colored frosting or candies)
2 Baking Sheets

You want to create/prep a "drying" station". Which will be baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Make sure you clear some room in your fridge too.

Remove the cookies from the packaging to get them ready for the chocolate. I ended up creating about 50+ cookies with this recipe. 

You can either microwave your chocolate, 30 seconds at a time, till it becomes a liquid OR you can melt it over the stove. I prefer melting it over the stove so the mixture doesn't harden on me. I do not own a fancy double boiler. What I did was put water into a bigger pot. I inserted a smaller pot into the water. With the smaller pot I melted the chocolate.

If the chocolate mixture becomes to thick you can add vegetable shortening to thin it out. It's a simple trick that helps alot!
I didn't get a photo of this but once the mixture is good to go, drop the cookie into the chocolate. Use a fork to fish out the cookie. Placed the chocolate covered cookie on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Once you've filled your sheet with yummy chocolate covered cookies its time to decorate the cookies with whatever you want (my favorite part)! I used red and blue sprinkles for a 4th of July theme. :) In the decoration process, add some melted chocolate into ziplock bag making sure to stuff all the chocolate to one corner. Once sealed cut a small tip of the corner of the bag. Use the ziplock bag as a piping bag to create the "strips" of the flip flops!

Once decorated, place in the fridge over night to harden.

And this is my finished creation!! You can get super creative with this by either coloring the chocolate, using different shaped sprinkles, or  using colored chocolate to make the strips. It's very fun and so simple and they also taste great! It's like eating a Butterfinger and not having to deal with it sticking to your teeth, haha!
