Cookie Pops

This is another project inspired by Leigh.  She made the cutest cookie pops for Christmas…and (with her permission) I took the idea for Valentine’s Day.  I used Oreo cookies, candy melts, Wilton lollipop sticks, and various sprinkle-y goodies.  I carefully opened each cookie (do what you may for the ones that break!) and hollowed out a space for the stick with a drinking straw.  Then I put the cookie back together, with the stick inside, and dipped the cookie into melted candy melts.  While they were wet, I used the sprinkle-y goodies to decorate them including the nonpareils heart I made (see below).  After they were dry, I covered the cookie pops with little bags and tied them off with twist ties.

I printed off a sheet of hearts on my printer and put a layer of wax paper on top of the printer sheet.  Using red candy melts, I piped the candy onto the wax paper to fill in each heart.  While they were still wet, I sprinkled red non-pareils all over the hearts.  I got the idea when Bridget over at Bake at 350 showed us how to do monograms.  When the hearts were dry, I carefully peeled them off the wax paper and onto the wet cookie pop coating.  It’s a super cute idea for Valentine’s Day, but I could totally see this for just about any holiday.  I think I’ll try piping some green shamrocks…

  1. Dear Domesticated Lady –

    I tried to make these over the weekend for a bridal shower, but every time I put the Oreos back together they broke. The sticks were too thick for the filling. What size sticks did you use? Or did you use Double Stuff Oreos? Where did you get the sticks?

    Thanks!

  2. Oh no! Let me see if I can remember…I think I got the lollipop sticks either from the Wilton department in Walmart or the cookie sticks from the Wilton department at Michael’s. I think I might have used the double stuffed Oreos and I scooped out a little place for the stick with a straw. Then I used the candy melts to secure the stick and a little extra drizzled on the creme to stick the cookie back on. I hope that helps. I did break quite a few cookies, though….had to eat them :)

  3. I made these once for my son’s birthday and also had the problem of cracked cookies. Fortunaltely, when you dip them, the cracks aren’t visible. I used the lollipop sticks made by Wilton. Next time, I may flatten the end that goes into the cookie and hopefully that will prevent breakage. I love the little heart you made from non-pareils!

  4. Ahhhhh I should’ve tried this before I needed them. The Wilton cookie sticks are too wide and the cookie won’t close. I think I might need double stuffed :(

    I was thinking of making these as Thank You favours for a baby shower and had 2 questions for you.
    1) Could you not just stick a straw in the stuffing and pull the stuffing out, rather then opening the cookies?
    2) Are candy melts the same as the coloured melting chocolate wafers?

    Thanks!

  7. what kind of candy melts did you use

    I’ve made these but instead of lollipop sticks I used popsicle/craft sticks. Worked great. Then I wrapped a piece of floral foam with tissue paper and carefully pushed them into the foam so they stood up.
