Snowball Cookie Pops

I love the look when the snow has freshly fallen, thickly
blanketing everything in sight.  That white on white effect
out on the back deck was just gorgeous.

White on white is lovely for a dessert too and
what better dessert than an individual cookie
pop dusted with sparkly white snow apparel
and a hidden chocolate center.

These Snowball Cookie Pops were dressed all in
white for a winter wedding.

I stacked two styrofoam cake rounds and held them
together with bamboo skewers, then edged them with a
wide white satin ribbon held on with pearl topped straight
pins.  The front was decorated with a silver frosted
floral to give it an elegant look.

The bride wanted an all white dessert table.

Three different candy decor were used to create the snowball
effect and the tops of
the styrofoam rounds were also dusted with sparkling
snowflakes to create the look of fresh fallen snow.

Cookie Pop Recipe
(Adapted from Picky Palate who adapted hers from Bakerella.)

1 pkg. Oreo Sandwich Cookies
1 container Betty Crocker Cream Cheese Frosting
White chocolate coating
Candy sprinkles in desired colors

Blend the entire package of Oreos in the food processor until
evenly fine.  Mix the frosting mix in by hand until well blended.
I like to use a pair of latex gloves while I do this.

Form the cookie mix into balls and place on a
parchment lined cookie pan.  Place in the fridge
until set.  (This should make about 50.)

Melt the white chocolate coating.  I melt mine in a
microwave safe bowl.  Melt for 1 minute, stir whether it
looks like it needs it or not, or it will scorch on the bottom.
Melt one minute more and stir.  If it needs more time,
melt at no more than 30 second intervals, always
stirring in between.  ( I have been dipping chocolates
for 30 years now and have had great success with
the microwave as long as you don't forget to stir.)

Remove cookie balls from fridge - don't remove
all at a time or they will get too soft and fall off the
stick as you dip them
.  Dip the end of a sucker stick in the white
chocolate coating. Stick it into the ball.  Let set up.
This should help it from falling off.  If they begin to
fall into the coating, put them back in the fridge to
harden up a little more.
Dip the ball into the white chocolate.  Hold over the
pop over the bowl and let drip for a minute, twirling
to remove excess.  Don't shake or it might fall off
into the bowl. 

Sprinkle any decorations on it while the chocolate is
still wet.  They will set up pretty quickly since the center
is cold.  If the chocolate
drips down the stick, wipe it off with your finger.

Stick the pops into a piece of styrofoam until they
set up hard and you can touch them.  (This is really
important to keep them beautiful.)  If you don't have
a piece of styrofoam handy, fill a large bowl with
several inches of sugar and stand them in the sugar
until they are set.

(You can also use an 8 oz. pkg. of cream cheese in
place of the frosting, but then you have to worry about
keeping them refrigerated.)

You can also dip them like a truffle without the stick.
The richness of the dark Oreo is perfectly complimented
by the white chocolate coating.

They turned out beautifully for the wedding.
We made over 250.  The servers continually refilled
the tiered display so that it stayed beautiful all night.

If you haven't given cake or cookie pops a try,
do it.  They are so elegant and fun. 

These little beauties are going to be "popping"

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.

  4. This is such a wonderful idea for this time of year - I think I like the sparkly ones the best.

  5. Your cookie pops are definitely as elegant and beautiful as the fallen snow.



  7. Jacqueline, Your cookie pops look absolutely stunning! The way you have them set up, they look like a white layered wedding cake:) Maybe you can start a trend and substitute the cookie pops for the cake! They are perfectly striking in the white!

    I made some for my daughter's wedding shower almost 4 yrs ago..I couldn't think of a beautiful way to present so i wrapped green soft styrofoam blocks and plucked them in there:) This is so much prettier! And the little swiss dots are "la touche finale".

  13. What a beautiful idea! I am yet to make cake or cookie pops and am super anxious to try. This would make a great entertaining idea during this winter. I hope you'll join Saturday Swap. This is a fabulous idea!! Have a super weekend!!!
