You guys. I am seriously so over making desserts! This past weekend we had a rummage sale during Hazen’s citywide rummage sale day. I had the (not so) bright idea to also have a bake sale and donate the proceeds to my husband’s Relay for Life team. That is a great idea, but it was a LOT of work! Of course, since it goes for a great cause it is no matter. But I might not be baking as much on this blog. You might see more dinner recipes! I need a break and this warm weather doesn’t help! I am happy the sale is over and happy we donated to Relay for Life.
This is a no brainer. Cookie dough balls, wrapped in chocolate with a stick in them. Sign me up. I did run out of sticks, but just dunked part of the cookie dough bits in the chocolate and I think that worked just fine!
Cookie Dough Pops adapted from Sally’s Baking Addiction recipe
Ingredients (I doubled this recipe and made about 60 bites)
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp milk
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
- chocolate candy coating, for dipping
- 30 popsicle sticks
- In a large bowl using a mixer, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy, 3 or 4 minutes. Mix in milk and vanilla. Add flour and salt and mix on low until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips by hand. Chill the dough in refrigerator for 30 minutes or overnight.
- Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll dough into balls, about 1 tablespoon of dough per ball. Insert a popsicle stick into each ball. Freeze balls for at least 15 minutes on a cookie sheet. You don’t want them totally frozen.
- Melt candy coating following instructions on the package. Remove the balls from the freezer and dip into melted chocolate. Let any excess chocolate fall off. Top with sprinkles if you’d like and allow chocolate to set on lined cookie sheet.
I have no problem eating raw cookie dough with eggs in it, but I am apprehensive serving it to people. So for an easy solution, remove the eggs from the recipe. Looks the same though, right?
So much deliciousness in these little balls!
Be sure to freeze the pops for a while, it allows them to set up.
Be sure to cover completely with chocolate and let them cool. The chocolate dries and adds a bit of a crunch when you bite into these.
Enjoy this fun treat!
