Halloween Cookie Pops!

That’s right, I’m here to tempt you with some yummy treats today!
Justin gave me the idea for them when I was talking to him about wanting to come up with a cute Halloween treat post. He was all excited and told me I should make cookie pops that look like tombstones, and use one of his favorite cookies, the Mother’s Double Fudge Cookies. They’ve got the perfect shape for tombstones and they are pretty tasty. I’m sure he wanted me to make them just so we’d have an excuse to buy a package or two of them, and he could eat the leftovers.
Supplies needed:

Pick up some Mother’s Double Fudge Cookies, some baking chocolate, candy melts (not shown), and some cake pop sticks.  I prefer to dip the cookies in actual chocolate instead of the candy melts, I mean seriously, what’s better than chocolate cookies dipped in more chocolate?  That’s what I thought. ;)
First thing you do is insert the cake pop stick into the cookie…

Then you’ll melt your chocolate over a double boiler or in the microwave. Let it cool down some before dipping the cookie into the chocolate. After you’ve dipped the cookie into the chocolate you can place it on foil or wax paper to harden. I put mine in the refrigerator so that they would harden faster. Then it was time to get out the candy melts and decorate!

I dipped a toothpick into the melted candy melts and used it to create the letters “RIP” and the green grass on the tombstones.

For the white chocolate dipped cookie pops I decided to get inspired by Dias de los Muertos and decorate them to look like skulls. I wish I would have picked up some black candy melts too, but I forgot about it, and just used some black icing instead. Still tasty and still able to decorate them with a toothpick!
