Heart Cookie Pops
We’re already gearing up for Valentine’s Day because…sugar cookies! We love sugar cookies at our house and this year my kids want to give their friends a fun treat that they can make themselves. There is a sugar cookie recipe that I make every year that I love but is not the easiest to make and requires the dough to chill overnight.
last week I was at Target with my daughter and she picked up the hot pink funfetti frosting and begged me to buy it. Right next to it was the Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix for only $1.99 and we had already put some Valentine candy in the cart sooo….
Bam! Heart Cookie Pops that the kids can make on their own.
Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie mix
1/2 cup butter
I was really impressed with the sugar cookie mix. If you’re going to roll the cookies out you’ll need to add a little bit more flour. There are full directions in the back of the packet, my kids were able to follow along no problem. After the dough was ready, we floured a clean surface and started rolling it out.
You can make your cookie pops with lots of different configurations. All it is is one cookie on top of the other with a stick in the middle, ta-da. Lay one cookie down on the cookie sheet, then put a stick on top of that cookie, then place another cookie on top of that and press gently. We made smaller cookies to decorate the top.
The package says to bake at 375* for 5 minutes but since you have one cookie on top of the other you’ll need to leave it in a little longer. Make sure you keep a close eye on them so they don’t burn.
Cool the cookies on a cookie rack before decorating.
Time to decorate. Let the kids go to town!
If you want the frosting to harden place cookies in the fridge for an hour. Otherwise, dig in!
