rainbow cookie push pops and a GIVEAWAY!!!!

Wanna know what these are?
Oh, I guess the title gave it away.
Also, you can just glance down.

I dare to say push pops could be the next big thing. Or at least, I’ve seen a slight upsurge in them. When I spotted this post on Gordon Gossip linking to these cupcake push pops at Love from the Oven, I had to have some of those surprisingly hard-to-find containers. Jenifer of Gordon Gossip clued me in to a source: Pastry Chef Central. Note they are out of stock til June 1 (see? an upsurge). But I got my order in before said upsurge. For 100 push up pop containers. So these won’t be my first push pop creations. And this won’t be my last giveaway of a dozen push pop containers. Cuz that’s (part of) what I’m giving away (below). You can also find them at the etsy shop, CupKatesEventDesign.

My first idea was marshmallows. But they didn’t fit. Hence, these rainbow marshmallow kabobs. So I stuck with cookies.

The containers are great, though I doubted my intelligence when I first attempted assembling them. (I should note I have two masters degrees. They didn’t help.) They come with lids and everything.

how to make cookie push pops

you will need:*

push pop containers
1 1/2-inch circle cookie or fondant cutter


disposable decorating bags
size “5” decorating tips
rubber bands
food coloring

*Find the circle cutter at the craft store or cake decorating shops. At the craft store, find the decorating bags, couplers, and tips. You’ll need one for each color icing you choose. Choose sprinkles or sanding sugar to match each color, also at the craft store. Or, just use white sprinkles. I use Americolor soft gel paste food coloring. Electric Pink, Orange, Egg Yellow, Electric Green, Sky Blue and Regal Purple used here. For tips on finding supplies CLICK HERE.

step one: bake your cookies
Prepare dough according to the recipe, chill, roll out and cut out circles. Bake according to the recipe and let cool.

step two: prepare your icing
Prepare icing according to the recipe, divide, and tint desired colors. Prepare decorating bags with couplers and tips, fill with icing and close tightly with rubber bands.

step three: decorate your cookies
Work with one cookie at a time. Pipe a circle on the cookie, then pipe back and forth to fill the cookie completely. Immediately coat with a coordinating color of sprinkles and turn over to remove excess. Let dry uncovered overnight before stacking in the push pop containers.

the push pop giveaway

Since I ordered so very, very many, I decided to give one lucky winner a dozen push pop containers. But that hardly seems like enough of a prize, so I’m also throwing in a 1 1/2 inch circle cookie cutter. And since that hardly seems like a prize, I’m also including six bottles of Americolor Soft Gel Pastes (pink, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple). I’ll also throw in a little container of white sprinkles.

the prize:
a dozen push pop containers
1 1/2 inch circle cookie cutter
six bottles of Americolor soft gel paste
white sprinkles
(no actual cookies included)

  32. Erin says

    Love! I have noticed that people have started using those too! They remind me of the push pops we begged my parents for when we were little. What if you dyed your cookie dough as well to match the sprinkles? Just saying, it might be cool from the side. :)

  33. Jenn @ BentoForKidlet says

    Super cute! I wondered where to get the push containers, I will have to stalk them until they are back in stock!

    I would LOVE to win this. I've been trying for ages to get hold of some of the americolour gels (or any gel), and people either look at me like I've invented a product or tell me they can't ship to the UK when I find them online. It makes me sadface.

    Well I'm off to the facebook page to have another go 😀
