If you are looking for a fun and easy recipe to do with the kids, try these deliciously simple Valentine Cookie Pops. The kids will smile and giggle while making these treats, and will have something fun to give to family, friends, and classmates!
You will need:
20 vanilla wafer cookies 1/2 cup peanut butter 1 6-ounce bag white chocolate chips 1 6-ounce bag semi sweet chocolate chips colored candy sprinkles, red & white pink and red gummy or sour patch bears Cake decorating writer gel in green, pink, red, black, and white 1 tube each of white, red, and pinkcake decorator frosting with flower tip red food coloring ice cream or lollipopsticks wax paper or paper plates
Spread peanut butter onto the flat side of the cookies. Place an ice cream stick into the peanut butter on half the cookies. Top with another cookie so the stick is sandwiched between the two cookies.
Melt chocolate chips in the microwave, one minute, then in 20 second increments, stirring until smooth. Before melting, seperate the white chips into two bowls. After melting, add a few drops of red food coloring to one of the bowls of white chips to make pink chocolate.
Dip cookie pops in the melted chips, covering completely. Roll pops in red and white sprinkles and lay or stand on waxed paper or paper plates. Place in refrigerator to chill.
Alternating between white chocolate, pink chocolate and semi sweet, drizzle melted chocolate over the cookie to create a cool look!
Write fun Valentine shorts on plain pops such as “Love” or “Hug”. Add agummy bear.
Use the decorator geltodraw on hearts and hearts with arrows.
Using the flower tip, pipe on pink flowers with cake decorator icing. Use green gel to add stems and leaves to the bouquet. Note: Another variation is to use vanilla or chocolate frosting instead of peanut butter for the filling.
These can also be made without sticks. Use one stick to be able todip the cookies in chocolate and roll insprinkles, then remove the stick and put onwax paper or paper plates, then chill. This recipe was adapted from Penny Warner’s Cookie Pops available inthe Kid’s Party Cookbook .
