I needed another Teacher Gift for the end of the year. I wanted to go simple and easy. I have been doing other baking and crafting for other little events and things that have been going on. So, I pulled out that cute Push-up Pop Book that the evil-lovable genius Bakerella got me hooked on.
Lily and I got to baking. The book has it's own recipe for the chocolate chip cookie dough, but I just used my favorite Toll house recipe. It never fails me and it is my favorite.
It took some time to smear out the dough to cover the whole pan, but I finally finished and tossed it in. Once the cookies are made you just cut them out with one of the push-up pop molds.
Then I made just a regular vanilla frosting from scratch. I didn't have a tub and I didn't want to go get one, it is just as easy to make frosting. Any Vanilla frosting would do. Now, the next time I make these I want to add pecans to the cookies and then make a butter pecan frosting or a pecan buttercream, something just totally yummy and BAD for you.
This just takes time to get used to. I frosted the bottoms of the pops, sprinkled mini-chocolate chips and then a cookie circle, repeat. Some I got 4 layers some I got 5 layers. Either way, super cute, something simple as a sweet parting gift for the end of the school year.
I tossed a quick little tag that said thank you on with some ribbon and brought them to the teachers. School is finally out! Yay, for the end of June! Yay for the end of the school year. Bring on Summer Vacation!
