Bunny Bottom Cookie Pops

Ingredients

  • 1 package NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Dough 16 oz. pkg.
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 4 cups NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels two 12-oz. pkgs.
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
  • 12 lollipop sticks
  • 12 white ball candies
  • Oil or powder based food colorings blue, yellow and pink

Instructions

  1. PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with parchment. Break off 12 cookies, place on baking sheet and bake according to package directions. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely. Refrigerate remaining dough for a later use.
  2. PULSE cooled cookies in food processor until they are fine crumbs. Transfer to small bowl.
  3. SIMMER cream in a small saucepan. Remove from heat, add 1/4 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels and stir until melted. Cool to room temperature, then add to bowl with cookie crumbs and mix well. Shape into 12 balls and refrigerate.
  4. COOKIE POPS:
  5. MELT remaining 3 3/4 cups white morsels and shortening in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 30 seconds STIR. Morsels may retain some of their shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 5 to 10-second intervals, stirring just until melted. Alternatively, place the morsels and shortening in a small bowl set over, not in, a pan of hot water, stirring once the morsels start to lose their shape. Cool to room temperature.
  6. DIVIDE melted morsels into 3 bowls and use oil or powder based food coloring to tint the morsels pink, blue and yellow.
  7. DIP lollipop sticks about 1/2-inch into melted white morsel mixture, then into cookie balls. Refrigerate while you prepare bunnies.
  8. BUNNIES:
  9. PIPE out silhouettes of 12 bunnies in assorted colors using the template. Let set.
  10. COATING POPS:
  11. Holding onto lollipop stick, dip each pop into your choice of colored morsel mixture until coated. Before your pops set, remove a corresponding colored bunny from the template sheet and press onto the back of each round pop so the cookie ball becomes the bunny's "bottom". Add a white candy ball to the front to create a small white bunny tail.
