During the holidays I love having a “go-to” treat that can be easily made and is sure to impress. These cute little pops can be a great treat for school or work, or even wrapped up as a gift basket. Let’s face it, not many people can say no to chocolate AND peanut butter.

Ingredients
For the cookie dough
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 TBS of milk
1 & 3/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt

For the pop
Candy melts
Lollipop sticks
Sprinkles (optional)

Making the cookie dough

1. In a large bowl cream together the butter, sugar and brown sugar
2. Mix in the peanut butter and milk
3. In a separate bowl mix together dry ingredients
4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet

After the cookie dough has been made place it between two pieces of wax paper and roll flat, when your dough is about a quarter inch thick refrigerate it for one hour.

I’ve had these miniature cookie cutters for a while and haven’t found a good way to use them, until now (a cheap alternative if you don’t have small cutters would be to use a bottle cap to make circle shapes that you can decorate any way you like).

 

I cut out the tree shapes and placed them on wax paper, put them on a cookie sheet and put them into the freezer.

After they’re frozen you’re ready to work! Melt your candy melts in a microwave safe container, I prefer to melt them in 30 second intervals, stirring between each interval.

When you’re finished with all of your pops and the candy melts are hardened on all of them, you can then take small plastic candy bags to cover the pop and decorate it with a ribbon.

The beauty of this recipe is that since you’re not using eggs you can eat raw cookie dough, what a treat! Hey, it’s the holidays, go ahead and indulge yourself and don’t feel guilty about it.

What is your go-to holiday treat or gift?
