There are so many reasons you should make these stuffed cookie lollipops.
- To give to friends as gifts
- As a thank-you-for-coming-to-my-birthday-party gift
- To leave for Santa on Christmas Eve
- To stuff stockings with
- To bring to a holiday cookie exchange
Are you convinced yet? No. Well, keep scrolling. Once you find out what the secret surprise hidden inside the cookie pop is, you might change your mind.
This recipe should make around 9 lollipop cookies.
Vegan Cookie Pop Ingredients
- ½ cup earth balance (I like the organic whipped one)
- ¾ cup sugar (I like organic evaporated cane juice)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 ¼ cup flour
- 1 ½ tablespoons arrowroot starch (or sub organic corn starch)
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 3 Amy’s Minty bars
- 9 lollipop sticks
- vegan sprinkles (I used Sweets & Treats jimmies and quins)
Vegan Cookie Pop Directions
Use store bought vegan cookie dough instead of making your own.
Process the earth balance, sugar, and vanilla in a food processor until smooth. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use an electric mixer, or just mix by hand.
Add 2 tablespoons of water. Process or mix by hand or electric mixer.
Mix the flour, starch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.
Add the processed ingredients to the dry.
Preheat the oven to 350°.
Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Stick 9 lollipop sticks into 9 Amy’s Minty squares.
Wrap between 1 ½ and 2 ounces of cookie dough around each candy square. You want them to be similar in size to a golf ball. My cookie dough recipe makes 18 ounces of cookie dough, so you can make 9 cookie lollipops if you use 2 ounces of dough on each one.
Dip one side of the cookie dough lolli in sprinkles and set onto the parchment-lined baking sheets (with the non-sprinkled side down). Make sure you leave a lot of space between each cookie because they spread out a lot. I only put 3 cookie pops on each baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes and remove from oven.
Leave on baking sheets for a couple of minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
If you’re feeling fun, you can tie bows around the sticks like I did.
You can also decorate them with christmas colored sprinkles if they’re for the holidays.
