I usually make sugar cookies for my kids to take to school on Halloween but this year I am just not feeling it. Decorating sugar cookies is incredibly time consuming and I needed something quick and easy to make that still looked yummy and cute.
I thought about making cake pops but then I remembered that I attempted to make them in the summer for Sofie’s birthday party. While they tasted great they were not aesthetically pleasing. I may have also gotten incredibly angry during the making of said cake pops. The memory of that nightmare is still too fresh so I decided to pass on trying to make them again.
While on Pinterest I spied some cookie pops. Now that I can do. All you need is some Oreo cookies, lollipop sticks, candy melts and some sprinkles. Easy peasy lemon squeezy as Sofie would say.
Halloween Cookie Pops
Melt your candy melts. I melt mine in the microwave in 20 second intervals.
Take your lollipop stick and push it into the side of a cookie
Dip the end of the stick into the candy melts and put it back into the hole in the cookie. Let this harden for a few minutes before you dip your cookie.
Dip your cookie into the candy melts. Let the excess drip off.
Immediately cover with sprinkles.
I cover a cookie sheet in sprinkles and press the cookie into the sprinkles. I find it easier and not as messy.
Let them dry for a few hours or over night
Package in little bags and tie with a cute ribbon
I made 60 of these in 2 hours and that includes packaging them. Sugar cookies would have taken me 6 hours to bake and decorate, and it took me over an hour to make 16 cake pops in the summer. I will definitely be doing these again. They are quick, easy and tasty.
A perfect little snack that the kids can give to all their friends.
