Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Pops

Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Pops

These Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Pops just might be my favorite Christmas treats I’ve ever made. They’re just so cute! And Christmas-y! Oh, and the fact that they are little balls of cookie dough, dipped in chocolate, and covered in sprinkles doesn’t hurt either. 🙂

Even better, these are so easy to make.  I got the idea from Kevin and Amanda and the cookie dough center is actual cookie dough, but with 2 Tbsp of milk substituted for each egg so they’re safe to eat. They taste exactly like the cookie dough you swipe from the bowl as you’re baking cookies.

I used a plethora of Christmas sprinkles to decorate, but these are easily customizable and feel free to decorate however you want. I think that drizzled chocolate on top would be cute, or you could dip them in white chocolate, then draw snowman faces with icing. So many ideas!

Clearly I was a little sprinkle obsessed and had a great time decorating these treats. What I won’t show you is a picture of my counter absolutely covered in sprinkles. As I mentioned  last week, I also won’t be talking about how much money I spent on Christmas sprinkles at the grocery store, or how many little sugary bits Scamp ate off the floor as I decorated these. 🙂

These were a blast to make, very simple to decorate, ridiculously cute, and of course, delicious. Give these a try this year for Christmas and I guarantee they’ll be a hit. 🙂

Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Pops


  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 Tbsp milk
  • 2 cups mini chocolate chips
  • chocolate, for dipping. (I used vanilla candy melts)


  1. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl and set aside. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl until creamy. Beat in milk. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.
  2. Roll into small balls and refrigerate until firm. If using lollipop sticks to dip, add the sticks before refrigerating.
  3. Carefully melt the chocolate in the microwave, stirring until smooth. Using a lollipop stick or a toothpick, dip the cookie dough balls in the chocolate then cover with sprinkles.
  4. Stand upright until chocolate is dry or place on waxed paper.

  4. This is on my list to do this year! My FIL is coming for Christmas and loves all things cookie dough!

  5. These are tremendous! I have made the egg-less cookie dough before and done them as a “truffle” and they were a hit. I just found your site a few weeks ago and am also looking forward to making the chocolate chip cookie dough dip for a party this weekend. You have a great blog and I always enjoy reading the newest posts!

  6. love, love, love these girl! just so cute!

  7. These look delicious! I think I might try to make them tomorrow!!

  8. I canNOT wait to make these!!

  9. I am in love with your pretty treats Megan. Of course, Christmas will always be about colors red and green. My daughter and I will really enjoy making these pops. We are sprinkler-addicts too! Thanks for the post!

  10. Yours were beautiful. Mine were…..not. Sigh. I used almond bark. Was that my mistake? They just dripped all over the place when I tried to stand them up to set. Yours also look perfectly round. When I set mine in the freezer to chill, they were a bit flat on top. Oh well! They tasted good! I guess that’s the most important thing, right? =)

    • I’m glad they tasted good, even if they didn’t look the best! I’ve never used almond bark (I normally use candy melts), but I would think it would work fine. When I dip them I hold them over the chocolate for awhile to let the excess drip off, and kind of tap the stick on the side of the cup to speed up the process. Then by the time I stand them up, they’re mostly set and the excess chocolate is already gone. Maybe that will help? And I think mine were a little flat as well, you just couldn’t tell in the pictures maybe. 🙂

  11. Thanks, Megan. I think I might try Candy Melts next time and follow the rest of your advice if I make these for my hubby’s office for Christmas. I’d like them to be pretty, especially if I’m sending them somewhere. =)

  12. I’m so glad you put out something that tastes just like cookie dough! I tried the choc. chip cookie dough dip and was disappointed that it didn’t taste like cookie dough. I can’t wait to serve this tomorrow at my Christmas party!!

  13. We used these in goodie boxes for teachers/co-workers in December..and I might have stashed a few in the fridge for myself 🙂

  14. This is so awesome! I want to make them so bad! Megan, can you just find the candy melts at most stores or do you have to find a special place? Thank-you!(: these look delicious! ~Julie

    • Sorry for the slow reply – I got way behind while on vacation. But I find the candy melts at Meijer (similar to wal mart) or Michael’s. Good luck! 🙂

  15. These are delicious!! I bought the stuff to make them last night and we are going to make them today! 🙂 I had them at a picnic once and just came around to searching for the recipe• thanks for the recipe Megan!

  17. To make these be non-dairy, could I substitute soy milk or almond milk? Is there a preferred substitute to maintain consistency?

  18. Do you put them in the fridge after you make them or can they stay out and just covered? I have a cookie exchange I want to take them to but probably need to make them the day before. Thanks!
