This is a very yummy recipe. It has become a tradition for me to bring these cookie pops to the end of the year picnic at the nursery school where I work. At first, I had a bit of a problem with the cookies being flimsy and falling off the stick. I added 1/2 cup extra of flour and this helped. I also used wide wooden craft sticks instead of lollypop sticks. They look great wrapped in colored cellophane and tied with curling ribbon. Very festive and delicious treat!
The cookies tasted wonderful, but they were a little sticky and came out a little thinner than expected. They stayed on the sticks, but not very long without gravity taking over. This is a wonderful tasting recipe though and I definitly recommend it, just not for cookie pops.
Worked great! I made these for my son's sixth birthday to take as treats for school. I didn't have the chocolate candies, so I just used semi-sweet chocolate chips. Also, I used colored, regular size craft sticks intead of lollipop sticks. The perfect size for the dough is using 2 level scoops from a cookie dough scoop. With using this much dough, it made 25 cookie pops. I went ahead and inserted the stick before I flattened it. Then, I rolled the ball in colored sprinkles to give it some color. After I put the ball with stick on the cookie sheet, then I flattened it. I think that putting the stick in before you flatten it is the key to getting the stick to stay in. The first few I made fell apart because I put the stick in after flattening the cookie. Another tip for keeping them together: loosen them from the pan about 1 minute after you take them out of the oven. Then let them sit for about 2 more minutes on the pan before transferring to foil to finish cooling. After the cookies were cool, I wrote "Nick is 6!" on the stick. Also, I tied curling ribbon around the stick. They were adorable!
I made these for a picnic...the kids and adults loved them. I also used wood craft sticks and had no problem with the cookies staying on the sticks. I piped colored frosting on the cookies for a unique twist. Great!
The cookies stuck better to the baking sheet than the craft stick. I removed from the first pan while cookies were still warm, thinking this was the problem the second pan I removed when cooled. They crumbled and fell off the stick either way. Very tasty cookie, just not what I need for a bunch of 4 year-olds valentine treat.
They came out great. We decorated with tubes of icing, sprinkles etc. We used craft sticks and only had one cookie separate during removal from pan. The taste is nothing fabulous, but the result is cute.
This recipe makes the BEST Oatmeal cookies I have EVER had. They worked perfect with the popsicle sticks. I made my dough balls too big at first, but they even held up after they cooled(6 in round).
I will make these OVER and OVER again.
Edited to add: I did not add the candy pieces on top. I also used a popsicle stick instead of a lollipop stick.
I bring these to my son's preschool. I substitute the chocolate chips with rainbow colored circle sprinkles. I think this makes them look more like candy. The kids think they're great!
