Ingredients

For the Cookies and Caramel Filling:

  • 18 Trefoil Girl Scout Cookies or your favorite cookies
  • 9 pieces caramel candies (unwrapped)
  • 9 lollipop sticks

For the Candy Coating:

  • 6 tablespoons candy sprinkles
  • 6 ounces of vanilla candy coating about 3 squares of Almond Bark

Instructions

For the Cookies and Caramel Filling:

  • 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. 
  • Set one caramel (unwrapped) on top of each cookie on the plate. Try to put the caramel right in the middle of the cookie.
  • Transfer 3 or 4 of the cookies with the caramel candy on them to a smaller plate that is safe to put 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 carefully 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 of the cookie up.  Gently push the middle part of the top cookie down to make a “caramel sandwich cookie”. Make sure that the caramel is warm enough so that both the bottome and top cookies are sticking to it. 
  • Repeat this process for the remaining cookies.

For the Candy Coating:

  • Add the candy coating to a microwave safe small bowl.  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 (one cookie pop at a time) in it making sure the entire cookie is covered.
  • Hold the cookie by the stick upside down over the candy coating bowl so that the excess coating drips off. 
  • Right after dipping the cookie pop in the coating, dip it in the candy sprinkles.  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. The candy sprinkles need to be added right after dipping the cookie in the coating so that the sprinkles stick nicely to all sides of the cookie pop.  
  • Then carefully put the cookie pop stick side down in a small drinking glass or mug to let the candy coating cool and set.   
  • Repeat the candy coating process for the remaining cookies.  Reheat the candy coating that's in the bowl as needed.
  • Serve after the candy coating is set (about 15 minutes).

Notes

TIP

  1. Right after dipping the cookie pop in the coating, dip it in the candy sprinkles.  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.  The candy sprinkles need to be added right after dipping the cookie in the coating so that the sprinkles stick nicely to all sides of the cookie pop.
