Mickey Pops

I made these adorable Mickey Oreo Pops for my daughter’s birthday a few weeks ago.  They require very few ingredients, were super simple to make, and went perfectly with the Mickey Mouse Theme!

Here is what you will need:

1.  Double Stuffed Oreos

2.  Mini Oreos

3.  Lollipop Sticks (I used paper straws)

4.  Frosting

5.  Chocolate (for melting) and Sprinkles (for decorating) – optional

6.  Cake Pop Stand (optional)

– Open Oreo and place lollipop stick in the center

– Open mini Oreos and scrape off cream..place two mini Oreos on the large Oreo (push into the cream)

– Cover the bottom of the “ears” and middle with frosting

– Place the other half of the large Oreo on top (press down – but not too hard).

– Place in the fridge to set (for about one hour)

– Melt chocolate

– Dip Mickey pops into chocolate and coat with sprinkles

– Place in the fridge to set (for at least an hour) – ENJOY!

TIP:  I used a disposable cake pop stand to keep the pops separate and upright while they were setting.

Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

Let’s be honest, typically when something is labeled “Vegan,” most people are turned off. These cookies, however, are the exception!

I am not Vegan, but I am a cookie fan – especially when there is chocolate and peanut butter involved! 🙂 My son asked me to make cookies this weekend, and I remembered I had made these delicious treats a few months ago!  Not only are they yummy, they are super easy to make!

Here is the recipe (originally from Chocolate Covered Kate – an awesome dessert blog with healthy recipes)!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter, or almond or sunbutter
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp flour (whole-wheat pastry, all-purpose white, spelt, Bob’s gf mix all work)
  • 1/4 cup sugar or evaporated cane juice
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp applesauce
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • optional: tiny pinch salt (around 1/16 tsp) (Taste dough to decide – I like to add it.)
  • optional: chocolate chips

Instructions

Mix dry ingredients very well. Then add wet and form cookie balls. If you want soft cookies, fridge the dough for at least an hour. Then bake in a preheated oven (350F) for 8 minutes. They’ll look underdone when you take them out, but that’s ok. Let cool for at least 5 minutes before removing from tray.

To keep these cookies soft, store leftover cookies in a plastic container. This recipe will make about 12-16 cookies, depending on how big you roll them. (For 16 cookies, they’ll have 65 calories per cookie.)

ENJOY!!!!
