These chocolate dipped cookie pops are perfect for Valentine’s Day or any special occasion because you can customize the chocolate and sprinkles used. You could also get super fancy and use the specialty flavored chocolate sandwich cookies. Mint filled would be perfect for Christmas.
These are a fun little no bake treat that with some supervision are easy enough that your children, or in my case nieces and nephews, could make. Another fabulous thing about these are you can control how many you make. If you don’t need more than a dozen or so use the 6 ounces of chocolate chips and if you want more use a whole bag.
Chocolate Dipped Cookie Pops
- 1 package chocolate or vanilla sandwich cookies. I do not recommend the double filled kind. I speak from experience here.
- 6 to 12 ounces chocolate chips. I used white in this batch but regular would work as well
- 1-2 Tablespoons shortening. You need it to be sure that the chocolate is thin enough to easily coat the cookies
- Cake pop or lollipop sticks.
- Colored sugar sprinkles, and jimmies to decorate.
- Waxed paper
Place the chocolate chips and shortening in a double boiler or heatproof bowl over simmering water. For this project I recommend the double boiler method over using a microwave.
Stir frequently until melted. This takes around 5-10 minutes.
Poke the sticks into the filling of the about ten cookies. You don't want to go more than half way.
Lay a sheet of waxed paper on your counter and pour some sprinkles into a plate or other shallow dish.
Hold a cookie over the melted chocolate and spoon chocolate over the top, letting it drizzle down the sides. Turn over and repeat.
Place coated cookie pop on waxed paper and decorate with sprinkles as desired.
Once the ten cookies you've placed on sticks are dipped and decorated stick a few more on sticks and repeat the process.
Let set on the counter for a couple of hours to harden or refrigerate for about 20 minutes.
Recipe NotesTime does not include the chocolate hardening.
