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.
Most of you might already know what cookie pops are. But cookie pops come in different forms and variations:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
Go on! You can find the specifics in the recipe below:
Of course, you can use whatever chocolate you want and decorate it with other things. But to make these chocolate cookie pops look like princess Anna, you need this template.
With this in mind,
All is well that ends with a cookie!
