Wilton Heart Pops Kit for Valentine’s Day

January 18th, 2011 by Shannon Gosney

I love Valentine’s Day! Being a mom of 3 boys, Valentine’s Day gives me a reason to put up the “girly” colors of pink and red. I had so much fun putting together and decorating the Wilton Heart Pops.

Heart Pops Cookie Kit Contents

Pictured above are the contents that come in the box. Be sure to open the box carefully, as the directions and ideas for decorating the cookies are on the inside of the box.

The first thing you want to do is set up your decorating bags. There are two tips and two disposable decorating bags. Put the tip in the bottom of the bag and trim the bag so that 1/2″ of the tip is pushed out of the bottom of the bag. Set the bags to the side.

Mix Cookie Icing, Step 1
Mix Cookie Icing, Step 2

Next, you want to make the White and Pink Icing. First, you’ll cream 2 tablespoons of butter in a bowl. I used a hand mixer. You’ll notice that the butter spreads around the bottom of the bowl, but this is ok because it will all mix together once you add the icing powder and the milk. The directions call for 1/2 to 1 tablespoon milk, whipping cream, or water. I used 1 tablespoon of milk and think that 1/2 tablespoon may have been enough. If you are not using it right away, be sure to drape a damp, but not dripping, paper towel over the bowl to prevent the icing from hardening.

Filled Icing Bags

Next, fill the bags with the pink icing and the white icing and start putting the cookies together. I placed the cookies on a paper towel to reduce the mess.

Assemble Cookie Pops

Included are 20 pre-baked, heart-shaped cookies. Spread the cookies out and fill the middle of one with icing (your choice of pink or white). Place the lollipop stick in the middle of the cookie. I added more icing on top of the lollipop stick as well to help hold the cookies together. Now it’s time to decorate!

Decorated Pops

Get creative! Don’t feel like you have to follow the designs on the box, but you can definitely use them as a starting point and go from there. Let the cookies dry for a few hours, if not overnight. As they sit out, the icing will harden, which will make putting them in the bags less messy.

Decorated and Wrapped Pops

Once the Heart Pops are dried, place them gently in the provided plastic bags and close with the self-sealing gift stickers. Add a personal saying to your Heart Pop and give them to family and friends….or keep them and eat them yourself.

MY THOUGHTS

I had so much fun decorating the Heart Cookie Pops. I love that the cookies were pre-baked and that all I had to do was mix together the powdered icing, milk, and butter. I love that directions and decorating ideas were provided with the kit. It was a lot of fun and definitely got me in the mood for Valentine’s Day! Thank you Wilton for a product that really got my creative juices going!

    me encanta y lo practico y compro los producto en Rapsa Panamá, me gustaria que tuvieran una pagina Wilyon en Español.

    These are so cute. It’s nice that you have a kit but it would be easy to reproduce at home without the kit too. Thanks for the great ideas!

  4. The Heart Pops Cookie Kit is a Must Have for the Busy Person without much spare time on their hands. Everything is included to let you express yourself in your own way on Valentines Day. My Grand-daughter & I are making these over the weekend and she is giving them to her class mates … instead of boring store bought cards. (That usually get thrown away when school is over for the day.) These on the other hand can be enjoyed. Not only the exchange of “cards” but the flavor and the ingenious idea to give an edible exchange.

    • That’s a great idea. I personally LOVE that the cookies are pre-baked. All you have to do is mix the icing with butter and some milk and they are ready to decorate. I LOVE Wilton products! :) Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy Decorating!
