Christmas Cookie Pops

I know, I know I have been rather lax this last few weeks in posting. Christmas preperations are finally catching up with me and I still haven't wrapped a single present!

I have been making some simple treats for guests though and these cookie pops have been a hit.

They are super simple and easy to do and can be whipped up in less than an hour, you can make as many or as few as you like.

For this particular recipe I used a packet of chocolate chip cookies but you could use anything you fancy really. Add the cookies to a mixer and blend until a fine crumb, add in some cream cheese (add in a little at a time) until it becomes a smooth paste.

Take about a teaspoon of the mix and roll into a ball, place on some greaseproof paper on a baking tray and repeat using up all of the mixture.

You then need to melt your chocolate or if you can find in a local baking suppies shop candy melts, I find candy melts better because they can be reheated and you don't have to worry about it burning in the microwave.

Dip your cake pop stick into the chocolate to get about 1cm worth of choc on the end and then place into the top of your cookie mix ball, repeat this with all of the balls and then place into the fridge to cool.

Once they have hardened you can start to cover them in the chocolate, dip in the chocolate and then turn round until fully coated. Gently tap on the side of the bowl until the excess has dropped off add sprinkles if desired, then stand up to dry.

If you have some polystyrene then you can use this to stand them up in, otherwise a cup or glass can be used. And then you are done, the perfect size for children and pretty enough to give as a gift.
