I’ve made cookies on sticks on many occasions as children, particularly, seem to adore the novelty value of eating a cookie as if it was a lollipop! In my very popular ‘bake me I’m yours…cookie‘ book I included two examples, with my favourite being my ‘up, up and away’ ballooon cookies – so easy to make and yet so impressive!
I was helping judge the finals of the Millies cookies ‘Ice off’ competition recently and whilst there I was reminded how effective single cookie pops can be. Below is one of the competition pieces, these cookies are not exquisite works of edible art, however they do have a certain charm all of their own. Millie’s cookies is all about using quality ingredients but maintaining the handmade look and I think these fit the bill perfectly.
Fancy baking your own? I think you could easily have a go at making these by simply using two different types of cookie dough, choosing contrasting colours for the most impact. What taste combination will you try – Chocolate and vanilla, ginger and nut, chocolate and orange….? Hope these inspire you.
