Candy treats are the center of attention for most of October. It’s easier than you may think to create a festive edible arrangement using Dollar Tree vases, candies, and cookies. Set aside an afternoon for a little family time to create and decorate your own Ghost & Jack-O-Lantern Cookie Pops that your guests can admire…and enjoy. Trick or treat!
- Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
- White Chocolate Chips
- Orange Food Coloring
- Milk Chocolate Chips
- Wooden Skewers
- Fall-Colored Candies
- Wax Paper
- Microwave-Safe Bowl
- Cookie Pan
- Zip-Seal Plastic Bag
Follow Along Step-by-Step:
- Prepare to create the cookie pops by gathering all ingredients and lining a cookie sheet with wax paper.
- Place wooden skewers into the cream in the middle of each sandwich cookie and set aside.
- Place white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring chocolate chips after each interval until they are completely melted.
- Dip half of the cookies, one at a time, into the melted white chocolate until completely covered. Place each cookie on a lined cookie pan so the chocolate can set.
- Add 5-10 drops of orange food coloring into the remaining melted white chocolate and mix until your desired shade of orange is achieved.
- Repeat Step 4 with the remaining chocolate cookies in the melted orange chocolate.
- Place the cookie pan with your dipped cookies into the fridge to allow the chocolate to set for a few more minutes.
- Meanwhile, repeat Step 3 with milk chocolate.
- Pour the melted milk chocolate into a sealed plastic bag and cut a small hole in a corner. Pull your cookies out of the fridge and pipe milk chocolate faces onto the white ghosts and orange pumpkins.
- Return the cookie pan to the fridge until all of the chocolate is set.
- Fill a vase with fall colored candies or candy corn (Note: The candy is for display only, unless placed inside a food-safe container). Place the skewered chocolate covered cookies into the vase and put it on display!
