We were inspired by Bakerella and her incredible "Cake Pops"! Have you seen what she does??
One of her recipes were to make cookie pops so we tried them for a bake sale this Easter.
This recipe is so simple. Just a package of Nutter Butter Cookies. Place in a food processor and chop them till crumbly.
Roll the dough into round balls or shaped eggs. Dip lollipop sticks into melted chocolate then push through the bottom of each shape. Use styrofoam to stand the pops up. Refrigerate.
Melt dipping chocolate and dip the chilled pops in chocolate and then add sprinkles or leave them plain.
We dipped them in Ghirardelli white chocolate, little bit of sprinkles and then stood them up in a basket.
That's it! It is important to purchase melting chocolate that will be light and runny when melted. Some of our chocolate was thick and it was difficult to dip...but for the first time making them...I think we did pretty great! I found this site at CakeCentral.com where they address this issue and suggest using shortening. I will definitely try that next time!
