Cookie sandwich chocolate lollipop

Hello friends!

After a long Easter weekend (Monday was also holiday here in Finland) I am back to the city. “Back to the city”? Ehehe, we stayed some days in the countryside at my girls´ grandparents place. It was very relaxing and nice to see nature changing… Spring is definitely coming to this cold land.

I should have posted this before Easter but I was so busy I couldn’t. I also saved this subject for the #twitterchocolateparty (which happened yesterday) but in the end, I couldn’t make it on time. BAD ME. (#fail)

Anyways… you can use this idea for other occasions, the lollipops are very easy to make if you have all the ingredients on hand.

I made a big batch as a little Easter treat to everyone where we stayed. Since my mother-in-law has gluten intolerance, I made separate lollipops to her, using a different gluten-free cookie.

Chocolate covered sandwich cookies lollipops

adapted from here

yields 8 gluten-free lollipops and 25 normal ones

  • 1 can of dulce de leche (I used cooked condensed milk until thick consistency)
  • 1 pack of Maria biscuits (Marie biscuits). I used Kulta Marie from Kantolan
  • 400 g dark chocolate. I used Fazer dark- 47% (Fazer tumma suklaalevy)
  • hundreds and thousands sprinkles
  • sugar bunnies and sugar flowers
  • lollipop sticks or ice pop sticks
  • cellophane bags for wrapping

for the gluten-free lollies I used gluten-free round digestive cookies (Semper)

Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper, cellophane or foil.

Make sandwiches with two biscuits: spread the dulce de leche filling on one side, place the lollipop stick in the center and top with another biscuit. Proceed the same way with the other biscuits.

I started the process with the gluten-free ones to avoid cross-contamination but you don’t need if you are making one-kind only.

Melt and temper the chocolate. The type of chocolate I used required tempering but if you find it easier, use a confectionery chocolate (which doesn’t require tempering).

Dip each cookie sandwich and allow the excess to drip away. Place on the prepared cookie sheet and decorate with sprinkles if you like. I marked the gluten-free ones with a yellow sugar flower and the rest with a cute sugar bunny face.

Take to the fridge until firm, remove and let it “dry” outside the fridge.

I used cellophane treat bags with an Easter theme to wrap the ready lollipops and tied them with golden ribbon (for the normal ones) and purple ribbon (gluten-free ones)

Easy peasy right? ^__^

Have a great week everyone :).
