Ok, I admit it… sometimes I need to bakes something showy or spectacular, and I don’t feel like jumping through hoops. That’s when I whip out this fairly simple recipe…
Stuffed Cookie Pops!
You read that right… Stuffed. Umm… but what are they stuffed with?
That’s right… candy INSIDE a cookie ON a stick.
And to make it even more exciting (as if you aren’t already swooning from the wonder of it all… this recipe uses ONLY 4 ingredients…. (Including BOX CAKE MIX, so it’s kind of a cheat, but, um, did I mention that there are candy bars INSIDE the cookies?)
Go ahead and make them “fancy” by adding sprinkles…because, you know… sprinkles are the key to happiness and smiles. These heart ones make them perfect for a Valentine Party treat. (Of course, that raises the ingredient list up to 5… but sometimes you just need to go nuts).
Any caramel type candy bar can go inside. I chose Milky Way bars (chocolate covered caramel and nougat) because they are my favorites, but you can use Snickers bars, Three Musketeers or whatever (wonder if Abba Zabbas would be good? Wonder if they still make Abba Zabbas??)
Easiest is to use the little bite sized candy bars… but… I just had fun size, so I cut them in half. (Using that logic, you could probably just cut a regular candy bar into pieces… although the probability of cookie blow-out may increase…)
Also, since this particular batch was going to a bake sale, I put them on a stick. Everyone loves food on a stick (heck, you could probably sell cold Brussels Sprouts if you put them on a STICK). But, if you don’t HAVE sticks… just bake them as cookies. They are just as yummy, and it’s one less step for you.
