Halloween Jack Skellington Cookie Pops!
I absolutely adore Nightmare Before Christmas…in fact it’s currently on TV as we speak. These pops are relatively easy! Especially since my friend, Corryn, and I decided to buy the cookie dough premade instead of making it ourselves. Here’s what you’ll need:
1 package of gingerbread cookie dough, either the log or the cookie shapes
¼ white flour
2 tubes of black gel icing
1 container of whatever white icing you like, we used vanilla
A package of at least 25 popsicle sticks OR cake pop sticks
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
First use your hands to mix the gingerbread dough and the white flour. Once its mixed well, make the dough into a log shape, wrap in foil or cling wrap and stick in your freezer for about an hour.
When done, cut the log into ¼ of an inch cookies and use your hands to roll each cookie into a ball shape. Then stick the popsicle sticks or cake pop stick in the dough balls. Put on a lightly greased cookie sheet (we needed 2 and put both in the oven). Bake for 13-15 minutes.
When done, let them cool until they are TOTALLY cooled down.
Then use a butter knife and put a layer of the icing on each cookie. Use the black gel icing to create the Jack Skellington faces.
We had a blast doing this and we are planning on taking these to our friends Halloween party tomorrow night! It was a fun way to get into the spirit. We also made Nightmare before Christmas pumpkins while the cookies were in the freezer 🙂 Here’s a pic!
As you can tell, this is one of my favorite holidays!! Happy Halloween everyone!!
