Having a beach or pool party? These would be a really fun dessert to have, or the guests could maybe get in on the fun and help to make them. It appears that it would work with any oval shaped cookie that you like. You can make them with thin or thicker straps.

Sweet Sandals
Ingredients:
Oval-shaped cookies (we used Nabisco Cameos and Pepperidge Farm Milanos)
Frosting
Sour gummy worms
Rope licorice
Gummy candy

Instructions
To make a pair, frost two oval-shaped cookies or use a toothpick to dab frosting on each cookie where the straps will be attached.

For wide straps, snip the rounded ends from a sour gummy worm, cut it in half, and slice each half lengthwise, leaving one end intact. For thin straps, cut rope licorice into four 1-3/4 pieces, cut one end of each piece on an angle, and pinch together the pointed ends to form two pairs.

Press the straps, connected ends first, into the frosting. Use more frosting to add gummy candy jewels. Let the cookies set for 20 minutes. Serve them on a dish towel spread on a beach of graham cracker crumbs.
