Print Recipe


  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 1/3 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cups mini chocolate chips



  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment or silicone baking mat. Set aside
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter until smooth.   
  • Add sugars and cream together.  Add egg yolk, then vanilla.  Beat until fully incorporated, and light and fluffy (30 seconds).
  • Add salt, then add flour, one cup at a time. 
  • Add chocolate chips, and mix until just combined.
  • Pre-heat your oven to 350*F.
  • Form dough into two large balls.  Put one ball of dough in a bag in the fridge, while you roll out and cut the other dough as desired.  Use remaining dough from fridge once you have used the first ball of dough.

Cookie Pops

  • Roll out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and cut with desired shape (a small heart in this case). 
  • Turn the cookie over and press a lollipop stick (these are 6"sticks), into the dough slightly. Use a bit of extra dough to cover the stick. Press the dough around the stick as best you can. 
  • Turn cookies back over, press down onto baking sheet slightly.
  • Bake cookies in a pre-heated oven on prepared baking sheets for 10 to 12 minutes. The baked cookies will be nice and flat on the back, and should show no signs of the added dough. 
  • Cool completely before decorating.

Decorating Cookies

  • Use a batch of Royal Icing tinted to your desired colors or a batch of this simple Butter Frosting and a variety of sprinkles to decorate. See notes below.



These cookie pops actually look quite cute plain, and I was tempted to leave them as is... but it seems to me most anything is extra cute with pink frosting and sprinkles! 
These cookies could certainly be decorated with Royal Icing, but I wanted something extra simple, so I used my Simple Butter Frosting Recipe tinted pink, and spread it on the cookies with an off-set spatula. 
Top with cute Valentine's sprinkles and you have an adorable and delicious treat!  The butter frosting does not dry as hard as royal icing, but will dry enough to be packaged in cellophane bags.
