Back to school bite: Fun-faced cookie lollipops
1) Store-bought gluten free cookies
Putting a smile on your little one's face in their lunchbox doesn't need to require a lot of time, fancy equipment, or crazy ingredients. Sometimes it's just a matter of taking a simple cookie and letting your imagination go wild. You'll need four ingredients for these Fun-Faces Cookie Lollipops:
2) Allergen friendly candy
3) Homemade googly eyes
4) Melted chocolate
I loved the idea of placing the cookie lollipops on wooden cutlery instead of popsicle sticks because you can stuff these treats into your child's lunchbox and you have a dual purpose: 1) Fork for their food; 2) Dessert! All you need to do is use the melted chocolate like glue and even if they fall off, the kiddos can lick the chocolate off their spoons. Do you see how you just keep winning with these Fun-Faced Cookie Lollipops?!
