In The Garden Fruit and Cookie Pops

Mosaic Medley Cake

Cookies and fruit are a tasty treat combination, whether for family or a special event. Putting them on sticks makes them extra-special. They're so easy to make at home...a variety of metal cutters simplifies things. Here we've chosen a garden theme with flowers and insects galore, but any other themed cutters are equally fun!

Each pop serves 1.

Skewer smaller fruits (strawberries, grapes, orange segments, dried fruit) on lollipop sticks; dip completely or partially into melted Candy Melts candy. If desired, drizzle with contrasting Candy Melts candy or sprinkle with colored sugars or sprinkles.
