Pumpkin Cookie Pops
1 bag M&M'S® Brand Milk Chocolate Candies for Halloween
1 18-oz. roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 16-oz. can vanilla frosting
Orange and green food coloring
2 cookie sheets
25 colored craft sticks
Resealable plastic bag
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line the cookie sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
Cut approximately 25 1/4-inch slices of cookie dough. Place them on the cookie sheets. Slip a colored craft stick’s 2-inch tip underneath each cookie. At the top of each cookie and directly on the opposite side of the craft stick make a small dimple in the dough.
Bake the cookies for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely.
Tint a quarter cup of frosting with the green food coloring. Transfer to a resealable plastic bag, snip a small corner, and set aside.
Tint the remaining frosting with the orange food coloring. Spread it on the cookie tops. Use the green frosting to pipe the pumpkin stems around the dimples. Use M&M’S® Brand Milk Chocolate Candies for Halloween to decorate the cookies like Jack-O-Lanterns.
