I'm embarassed to admit that I've never worked with melted white chocolate prior to this experiment, and was perplexed when my end result was clumpy and unappetizing. I tossed the whole mess and grabbed some white candy melts instead. They melted beautifully and actually taste pretty good!
I thought I would be clever and skip the step of dipping the lollipop stick in candy and "gluing" the cookie in place on it. The cookie pop ended up falling to pieces in the melted candy. Don't skip this step. Unless you want to start all over again.
To speed up the process, I stuck the pops in the freezer for 5 minutes between "gluing", dipping, etc.. Worked like a charm.
The clear lolli-pop bags are available at Michael's in the candy making section. Tie with a pretty ribbon and voila! I'm already dreaming about Christmas-y cookie pops... stay tuned!
