aka. Anna Cookie Pops

Phew! I’ve prepared a fair share of cakepops so far. Not all made it to my blog though. Anyway most, naaa, all of them have been beautifully soft and moist inside. So, I tried something new (at least for me) – Chocolate Cookie Pops to get a little bit more crunch in there. And since a little princess girl wanted special Frozen themed Cakepops, I turned them into Anna Cookie Pops.

Lots of Chocolate Cookie Pops aka. Anna Cookie Pops

Most of you might already know what cookie pops are. But cookie pops come in different forms and variations:

  1. There is an easy-peasy and pretty lazy cookie pop recipe where you need sandwich cookies. Just stick a lollipop stick in between (right there where the cream is). You could even dip it into chocolate and add some sprinkles on top. Bada bing! There is your lazy cookie pop.
  2. For the next one prepare your favorite cookie recipe and right before you want to bake them, you can stick a lollipop stick into the dough balls.
  3. The last variation is similar to the already well-known cakepops. You just need cookie crumbs instead of cake crumbs and less butter.

The chocolate cookie pops belong to the latter ones. Take your favorite brand of chocolate cookies or chocolate chip cookies. I recommend buying lots of them. Just in case you might feel a craving for some cookies.  Crumble them and mix them with a bit of butter and a little bit more chocolatey cream cheese (Psst! In Germany, we have a brand that offers ready made chocolate cream cheese. But you can prepare it on your own with cream cheese and sweetened cocoa powder).  You have a wonderful firm dough to shape a few cookie mountains.

Instructions
  1. Beat the butter until frothy. Gradually add the chocolatey cream cheese until well combined.
  2. Crumble the chocolate cookies with the help of a food processor (or put them into a zipper bag and use a rolling pin) and mix them with the cream cheese mixture. The dough should already be perfect enough to shape into little mountains.
  3. Put the cookie pops into the fridge for at least 30 minutes and start melting the Candy Melts in a pot over boiling water (alternatively: melt the white chocolate, mix it with blue food colouring and add coconut oil to dilute it)
  4. Dip the blunt tip of the skewer into the chocolate and stick it into the top of the cookie pops (stick it as deep as possible). Put them into the fridge for another 15 minutes.
  5. Prepare a bowl of sugar sprinkles (or your homemade blue sugar) and, if neccessary, melt the chocolate again. Dip the cookie pops into the chocolate until everything is covered. If the chocolate stops dripping, coat it with the sugar decoration.
  6. Keep the cookie pops in the fridge if you don't want to eat them right away.
Recipe Notes

And to make the chocolate  cookie pops a real success baking story, I have a few more tips for you:

  1. I use the dull ends of the skewers to prevent the little kiddies from injuring themselves while eating those cookie pops. Furthermore, I used pliers to blunt the sharp points.
  2. If you plan on using homemade coloured sugar, just check out these videos:
  3. I have a last advice for sugar coating your cookie pops. Of course, you can roll the cookie pops right in the bowl with sugar but if the chocolate is still dripping a bit, the sugar will turn into a lumpy mess. Instead prepare a piece of tinfoil or parchment paper, hold the cookie pop right over it and start spinning it slowly while sprinkling it with sugar.
