If you are looking for a fun and easy recipe to do with the kids, try these deliciously simple Nilly Dillyicious Pops. The kids will smile and giggle while making these treats, and will be licking their lips when all the work is done!
What You Need:
- 20 vanilla wafer cookies
- 1/2 cup peanut butter (or sunflower seed butter)
- 1 6-ounce bag chocolate or white chocolate chips
- colored candy sprinkles
- ice cream sticks
- wax paper or paper plates
What You Do:
Spread peanut butter (or sunflower seed butter) onto the flat side of the cookies. Place an ice cream stick into the peanut butter on half the cookies. Top with another cookie so the stick is sandwiched between the two cookies.
Melt chocolate chips in the microwave, one minute, then in 20 second increments, stirring until smooth.
Dip Nilly Pops in the melted chips, covering completely. Roll pops in sprinkles and lay or stand on waxed paper or paper plates. Place in refrigerator to chill.
Note: If using white chocolate chips, you can tint the melted chocolate with food coloring, or leave the chocolate white and use chocolate sprinkles. Decorate with any other candies you wish, or leave some plain as we did here. Another variation is to use vanilla or chocolate frosting instead of peanut butter for the filling..
These can also be made without sticks. use one stick to be able to dip the cookies in chocolate and roll in sprinkles, then remove the stick and put on wax paper or paper plates, then chill.
