Chocolate Chip Cookie Pops

Fourth of July is coming up.

Can you believe it?! It’s almost JULY, people! Where did the last 6 months go?

Anyhow, in true American spirit, I am in the mood for classic Americana ranging from my new clothing purchases to the food I have ready for my menu this week.

To me, this week is all about celebrating our country, the people who serve/have served, watching fireworks with family and friends, hitting a baseball game, barbecuing, and making as much “classic American” (oxymoron?) food as I possibly can…and then waiting for the moment where my jeans don’t zip….

So to start off this week, I’ve made Chocolate Chip Cookie Pops. I drizzled them in chocolate to fancy them up a bit (didn’t think about red and blue until I finished….facepalm)

Confession: I tried using the BIG cookie dough squares and sandwiching a lollipop stick between two chunks…this resulted
