Shortbread Cookie Pops
- 18 Trefoil Girl Scout Cookies (or your favorite cookies)
- 9 pieces of Caramel Candies
- 9 Lollipop Sticks
- 6 tablespoons of Candy Decorations
- 6 ounces of Vanilla Candy Coating (about 3 squares of Almond Bark)
- 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 them 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 of the cookie 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. 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 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. 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).
