Halloween Cookie Pops

cookie pops

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.

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.

Happy Halloween!
