rainbow cookie push pops
I’m seeing push pops everywhere nowadays. You can buy the containers at amazon.
My first idea was marshmallows. But they didn’t fit. Hence, I used the marshmallows to make 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:*
*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 cookie decorating 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.
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.
