Thanks to Risa at www.bakedperfection.com who shared this great recipe for a kid friendly after dinner treat! I have been wanting to make these for the longest time, but haven’t found the time until tonight!
The best part? You don’t need to turn on the oven. And the cookie dough is made without eggs, so no worry about getting sick!
Here is what I used, adapted from Risa’s original recipe:
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 stick of butter, softened
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1-2 TB. of skim milk, until the dough comes together
I just put all the ingredients except the skim milk into my mixer and mixed for a few minutes. Maybe because I used half the butter, the batter was kind of dry, so I added a few tablespoons of skim milk and it turned out perfect!
I used wooden skewers for kabobs for the lollipop sticks
Just roll the dough into small balls and insert the sticks in them. When its complete, freeze for about 20 minutes.
I used almond bark in chocolate flavor and vanilla flavor to coat the cookie dough balls. It melts in a microwave safe bowl and once you coat the cookie dough balls, it dries very fast.
The almond bark can be found in major grocery store chains right next to the chocolate chips.
They turned out really good! The leftovers I am storing in the freezer, if one of the kids wants one, they can just set it on a plate and in a few minutes it will be softened enough to eat. Now, I know these aren’t the healthiest thing to eat, but because they are sweet, one is enough!
Thanks Risa for posting such a fun recipe, check out her site for many other great desserts!
