Cookie Dough Pops

 My kids never want me to bake cookies.  They only want me to make cookie dough.  In fact they beg me to make cookie dough & not bake it.  They have even asked me to leave a plate of cookie dough out for "Santa" on Christmas Eve.  

The only issue with this is that a big bowl of cookie dough in the fridge is hard to portion out & then there might be a little bickering about who took more than their share.  So in trying to come up with a solution to portion control & peace keeping, I decided to go ahead & roll the cookie dough into individual balls, just like I would do before baking.  And then I had the awesome idea to add a little chocolate candy shell to the outside of them to make them super duper perfect!  

These little Cookie Dough Pops {which, by the way, were named by my hubby} are almost sinful but don't worry because they are so rich that you won't even be able to eat more than a couple.  They're great for those times when you just need a little something sweet to make your day better.  I ate one last night & it was all I needed to get me past the craving!  Once they are made, you can store these in the fridge for up to a week or the freezer for up to a month, though I doubt they will last that long!

Cookie Dough Pops


 1-1/4 cups almond flour

1 cup + 3 tablespoons mini chocolate chips

1/3 cup maple syrup

1 tablespoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt

18 toothpicks


in a medium size bowl, combine almond flour, maple syrup, 3 tablespoons chocolate chips, vanilla & salt. {this will seem dry at first but just keep stirring it & it will become a soft dough}

line a cookie sheet with parchment paper & roll dough into 18 even balls {i use this small cookie scoop}

stick a toothpick into each ball & place in the freezer for 1 hour.

just before time to take the dough out of the freezer, melt the remaining cup of chocolate chips in a glass container. {make sure it is deep enought to almost completely submerge the dough ball.  this is what i use}  take the cookie dough balls out of the freezer & quickly dip into the melted chocolate, almost to the toothpick, then place them back onto the parchment paper.  once they are all dipped, return the cookie dough pops to the freezer for 15 minutes to set chocolate.
