First let me remind you that there are
only a few days left to join in on my
Now, what is Beaulah up to ....
This may surprise you, but
Beaulah loves football.
She thinks we ought to
change it up a little though and get
some broomsticks like Harry Potter
does in quiditch!
Football pops are quite the hit with
the football players.
My daughter wanted to make these
for her husband's last football game.
The guys on the team are always
begging for her to make cake or cookie pops.
She thought football shaped ones would be fun.
Beaulah thought we should make them
in Halloween colors, but we decided
for a traditional brown football.
Put them on a stick and they are fun to
display, or dip them like truffles
Everyone around here really likes
the little pops on a stick better.
Then finish them off with the white
chocolate coating for the
stitching and laces.
They were a lot easier on a stick
when it came to putting on the white
Cookie Pop Recipe
1 pkg. Oreo cookies
8 oz. cream cheese
or 1 tub ready made cream cheese frosting
Milk and white chocolate coating discs
Blend the cookies until fine crumbs in a food
processor. Mix in the cream cheese or frosting
by hand. If you use the cream cheese, be sure and
refrigerate the finished pops.
Meanwhile melt the coating discs. I place
between one and two cups in a microwaveable
bowl (make sure it is a microwaveable bowl or
you may scorch your chocolate discs). Turn
the microwave on for one minute. Stir - WHETHER
IT LOOKS LIKE IT NEEDS TO BE STIRRED OR NOT.
This will prevent the bottom from scorching. Then
melt in 15 second increments until all the discs
are melted. Let the discs cool about 10-15 minutes.
While dipping, reheat for about 10 seconds as
necessary to keep the chocolate thin and smooth.
Shape into footballs and place in fridge for about
half an hour or until firm. Reshape as needed.
Take only a few out at a time as they will soften
quickly and place on a stick. Dip in the milke
chocolate, shake slightly to remove excess, twirl
a little to make sure it is smooth and not
HERE IS THE BIG TRICK -
STICK UPRIGHT IN A PIECE OF FOAM!!!
(Like shown in picture above)
I have seen so many people try these
and they turn out a mess because they
are trying to sit them down before
they are dry. Let them dry upright
in the foam. (Or Beaulah will be cackling
at you too!)
Finish with the white chocolate piped
on with a very small tip. Make sure the
white chocolate has cooled a little so it
isn't just dripping out the end.
