Cure the Winter Blues with a Spring Cookie Pops Bouquet

February 25th, 2011 by Stephanie Michel

If you are anything like me, you are waking up to find piles of snow outside your door, more ice on your car windows, and your feet have been so cold you haven’t felt your toes since November. I am so ready for spring! To cure the winter blues, I decided to make a cookie bouquet! It is easy and will take your mind off of those below-zero temperatures for a while.

I started by making the vanilla sugar cookies on a stick recipe from the new Pops! Sweets on a Stick book. Next, I sprayed the Flower Pops Cookie Pan with Bake Easy™ Non-Stick Spray and filled each cavity with cookie dough about 1/8 of an inch below the edge. I placed the 8 inch Cookie Treat Sticks into each cavity approximately 2 inches in and covered with dough to secure.

The pops baked in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. I let the pops cool in the pan on a cooling grid for 5 minutes, and then I gently removed the cookie pops from the pan and let them cool for another 15 minutes.

While the cookies were cooling, I put together the Pops Flower Pot Kit. It was really easy to do with the step-by-step instructions. You can decorate it to your liking with ribbon or other craft supplies. Check out this cake pop idea for another fun way to decorate the flower pot kit using your favorite accents, stickers and paper.

Now comes the best part – time to decorate! You can use anything you have in your kitchen. What I love about pops are the many ways to decorate them. I used Candy Melts®, Cake Sparkles™, Sugar Pearls, Cookie Icing, Valentine Nonpareils Sprinkles, and the Rainbow Chip Sprinkles.

You can cover the whole pop in the candy melts with the Chocolate Pro™ Electric Chocolate Melter or melt the candy melts in the Candy Decorating Bags to make designs. I did a little of both.

After my cookie pops were decorated, I put them into the flower pot. Each pot holds up to five pops, but my cookies were big so I just used four. You can cut the sticks to create different heights for each pop. I love the way it turned out and cannot wait to share this with a friend who is ready for spring like me.

I still have snowy March and April showers before I get my May flowers, but this cookie bouquet is just delicious enough to get me through.
