Cookie Pops that POP with Punch. Cut. Decorate!

February 28th, 2012 by Paula Ivancicts

New Wilton products always give me a great excuse to make something sweet. And, using store-bought sandwich cookies is a quick and easy way to create cookie pops. So, when I came across the new Wilton Cake Stamps and Dab-N-Color edible colors, I couldn’t wait to try them out with easy sweets on sticks!

After melting Candy Melts®, I added a little vegetable oil to thin it out to get a nice, smooth coating. You’ll want to dip the end of a 4 in. lollipop stick into the melted candy before pushing it into the cookie. If it breaks, either use a little melted candy or press the cookie back together.

Dipping Cookie Pops

Once set, dip the cookie pops into melted candy. To remove any excess, tap the cookie pop gently on the side of the bowl. For a fun, decorative edge, roll the cookies in nonpareils, sprinkles, colored sugars or pearlized sugars. I also sprinkled on the sugar closer to the stick so there wouldn’t be any gaps. Place the cookie pops on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet to set.

Now it’s time to have some fun with Punch. Cut. Decorate! punches and Sugar Sheets! edible decorating paper. I cut out a few designs using various punches and then used Dab-N-Color™ edible colors and Wilton Cake Stamps to add accents.

Using a decorator brush, it was simple to brush on color and then stamp. My stamped design came out evenly, and I love the clarity of the letters! I will definitely be using those a lot in the future! While the color was still wet, I sprinkled on crushed Cake Sparkles™ for added shimmer. Or, I added sugar pearls to punched designs using piping gel. It really added that something special.

Assembling the cookie pops was a breeze! I brushed a little piping gel on the cookie pops and attached the shapes. I also used a toothpick to clean up the extra Cake Sparkles™ that didn’t stick.

Using the punches, Sugar Sheets! edible decorating paper Cake Stamps and Dab-N-Color edible colors really brought my cookie pops together. They looked so nice that in the future, I plan on giving them as a gift using Wilton Pops Gift Boxes or Favor Bags.

    I want to know where to find out how to make the cookie pops. I am making magic wands for a birthday party treat bag. So, I bought the lollipop sticks and a star cookie cutter. Do you bake the cookie with the stick inserted? Thank you for your help.
