Fun Winter Cookie Pops

By Amanda Formaro 

If you are looking for a fun and easy recipe to do with the kids, try these  deliciously simple Winter Cookie Pops. The kids will smile and giggle while  making these treats, and will have something fun to give to family and friends!

You will need

20 vanilla wafer cookies
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 6-ounce bag white chocolate chips
colored candy sprinkles, red & green combo and red
pull apart licorice whips, cut into 1-1/2" lengths
M&M candies
M&M mini candies
fruit roll ups, cut into 4" lengths
Cake decorating writer gel in green, black, and orange tube of white cake decorator frosting with flower tip
ice cream sticks
wax paper or paper plates


Instructions

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.

Dip cookie pops in the melted chips, covering completely. Roll pops in red  and green sprinkles and lay or stand on waxed paper or paper plates. Place in refrigerator to chill.

Fun Variations

Snowmen
Using a licorice whip, while chocolate is still warm on pop, form headband and position to regular sized M&M candies as ear muffs. Lie pop flat on waxed  paper and let cool. When cool, use black decorator gel for eyes and mouth  and orange for the nose. Gently wrap a fruit roll up around the bottom of the  cookie at the stick.

Santa
While chocolate is still warm, dip top of pop into red sprinkles for Santa's hat.  Lie flat on waxed paper and let cool. When cool, dot top of hat with white  decorator icing using flower tip. Use flower tip and white icing to add his bear  and line the brim of his hat. Use black decorator gel to dot on eyes.

Holly
While chocolate is still warm, position to red mini M&M candies off center in  the chocolate. Let cool. When cool, use green decorator gel to draw on holly  leaves, fill in.

Note: You can tint the melted chocolate with food coloring, or leave the chocolate white and use different colored sprinkles. Decorate with any other candies you wish,  or leave some plain. 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 to dip the cookies  in chocolate and roll in sprinkles, then remove the stick and put on wax paper or paper plates, then chill.

Here's what your kids will be doing when these yummy treats are finished! This  recipe was adapted from Penny Warner's Cookie Pops available in the Kid's Party  Cookbook http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/067157373X/thefamilycorne02
