Cookie Dough Pops

We needed a little treat for the Super Bowl, and I found these cookie dough pops over at Kevin & Amanda! Who doesn't L.O.V.E. raw cookie dough...? These are guaranteed salmonella free, because you replace each egg with 2 Tbls. of milk!Eat. your. heart. out.

What you need:
.your favorite cookie recipe
.lollipop sticks
.1 pkg. almond bark

What to do:
.Whip up your favorite cookie recipe, replacing each egg with 2 Tbls. of milk
.Melt almond bark in the microwave or in a double-boiler on the stove
.Form dough into 1" balls
.Dip each lollipop stick into the melted almond bark before inserting into the cookie dough balls, to act as a glue
.Push a lollipop stick into each cookie dough ball and place on a cookie sheet
.Place cookie sheet in the freezer and leave for 15-20 minutes, until dough is hard
.Dip each cookie dough ball into the melted almond bark, creating a nice, even coating
.Roll the coated cookie dough ball in sprinkles, to your liking
.Place in freezer for an addition 5 minutes to harden the almond bark coating
.Serve in a bowl filled with marbles or little candies to keep the pops standing

So, friends, the photo-a-day challenge, much like most New Years resolutions, has become more like a photo-every-three-days challenge... Cut me a bit of slack while I get my act back together ;)

I have been counting images from recipes and photo shoots with clients as "photo of the day" images, too, so perhaps I'm not that far behind?? I'll just keep telling myself that.
