St. Patrick's Day Cookie Pops

If you are looking for a fun and easy recipe to do
with the kids, try these deliciously simple St. Patrick's Day Cookie Pops. The
kids will smile and giggle while making these treats, and will have something
fun to give to family, friends, and classmates!
You will need:
20 vanilla wafer cookies
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 12-ounce bag white chocolate chips
green and yellow gumdrops
green and yellow Nerd candies
Cake decorating writer gel in green, yellow, red, orange, and black
1 tube of green cake decorator frosting with tip
green and yellow decorator sugar
green food coloring
ice cream or lollipop sticks
wax paper or paper plates
Spread peanut butter onto the flat side of the cookies. Place an ice cream stick
into the peanut butter on half the cookies. Top with another cookie so the stick
is sandwiched between the two cookies.
Melt chocolate chips in the microwave, one minute, then in 20 second increments,
stirring until smooth. Before melting, separate the white chips into two bowls.
After melting, add a few drops of green food coloring to one of the bowls of
white chips to make green chocolate.
Dip cookie pops in the melted chips, covering completely. Sprinkle with green
and yellow sugar and lay or stand on waxed paper or paper plates. Place in
refrigerator to chill.
After coating with white chocolate, dip top of pop into green sugar. Slice two
yellow gumdrops to make beard. Allow to dry on wax paper. Use black and red
decorator gel for eyes and mouth, and for trim on hat.
RAINBOW WITH POT OF GOLD
After coating with white chocolate, cut a green Dot in half lengthwise, adhere
to chocolate. Before chocolate has a chance to dry, place 3-5 yellow candy Nerds
"in" pot. Create a rainbow with various colored decorator gel.
After coating with white chocolate, sprinkle with yellow decorator sugar, then
draw on a shamrock using green cake decorator icing.
FOUR LEAF CLOVER
After coating with green chocolate, use green sliced gumdrops to create clover
leaves. Slice a small strip out of remaining gumdrop for stem. Use a green candy
Nerd for the center of the clover.
Note: Another variation is to use vanilla or chocolate frosting instead of
peanut butter for the filling.
These can also be made without sticks. Use one stick to be able to dip the
cookies in chocolate and roll in sprinkles, then remove the stick and put on wax
paper or paper plates, then chill.
