Girl Scout Cookie Pops

Here is a super simple, super fun, and ultra super delicious recipe for you.

Maybe it’s more of an idea rather than a recipe because you can use any type of cookie that you like.

I used Girl Scout Trefoil cookies because I had them on hand but these cookie pops would be delicious with chocolate chip or sugar cookies….or even Lorna Doone cookies.  YUM.

The best part of this recipe idea is that you can customize it!

These can be made into DIY wedding or party favors.

And they would be soooo pretty as a gift wrapped in cellophane with a ribbon.

These cookie pops would also be adorable as a bouquet using Styrofoam as a base in a non-see-through-type vase. 

Or…you can just eat them all yourself!  Why not, you deserve it!

Just don’t be like me and drop the little decorative candies all over the kitchen counter…..then on the kitchen floor…..then walk on them with your bare feet and track them through the house.

There’s nothing like those little tiny decorative non pareil candy balls stuck to the bottom of your feet.  It’s very glamorous if you ask me.

Let’s check out the ingredients:

Here’s how to make it.

For the Cookies and Caramel:

On a large plate,

lay 9 cookies front side down so that the flat part of the cookie is facing up.

Set aside the remaining 9 cookies.

Then unwrap each of the caramel candies and set one on top of each cookie on the plate.

Try to put the caramel right in the middle of the cookie.

Next, transfer about 3 or 4 of the cookies with the caramel candy on to a smaller plate that can go in the microwave.

Heat the caramel (along with the cookie it’s sitting on) for about 20 seconds in the microwave.

The idea is to heat the caramel just enough so it’s soft to the touch but not runny. 

Remove from the microwave and poke a lollipop stick in the middle of the caramel. 

Poke the lollipop stick into one of the sides of the caramel rather than through the top of the caramel. 

Then,

take one of the remaining cookies that was previously set aside, and lay it on top of the warm caramel with the decorative side up.

Next,

gently push the top cookie down to make a “caramel sandwich cookie”.

Make sure that the caramel is warm enough so that both cookies are sticking to it.

If the cookies aren’t sticking to the caramel,

just pop the cookie with the caramel on top of it back into the microwave for about 10 seconds.

Or it may take a few seconds longer to get the caramel soft.

Just be careful not to get the caramel too hot or it will turn into caramel soup.

Repeat this process for the remaining cookies.

For the Candy Coating:

Add the candy coating to a small bowl that can go in the microwave.

Heat the candy coating in the microwave for 30 second bursts until it’s melted, making sure to stir after each 30 second interval.

Once the candy coating is melted,

dip the cookies in the coating making sure the entire cookie is covered.

Hold the cookie by the stick upside down over the bowl so that the excess coating drips off.

Next, dip the coated cookie pop in your favorite candy topping.

Use your fingers or a spoon to put the candy toppings all around the candy coating so the cookie pop is completely covered with candies.

Then carefully put the cookie pop stick side down in a small drinking glass or mug to let the candy coating cool and set.

Serve after the candy coating is set (about 15 minutes).

Enjoy!

Kids will have fun making these….

….and eating them too.

Such a pretty bouquet of cookie pops….

Super delish.

    This is a delicious idea. These would make a terrific gift, but I would have to keep a few for myself-yum! Now my mind is reeling from thinking about all the cookie varieties and fillings you could do. However, shortbread is a great pic to start off with.
    Glad I stopped in to see this. Have a great day!

      Hi Tina, I know what you mean. There are so many other ways to get the cookies to stick together with other types of fillings. Other types of topping too. Have a great day!

      Hi There, they sure would! With a little food coloring, the white chocolate could be turned into a theme color too. So many ways to customize these. Thank you for stopping by!
