Mini desserts are cute, but how about mini desserts on a stick? We are breaking barriers here, people. These treats are SO adorable they are giving me a nervous breakdown. They’re super delicious and surprisingly easy to make. Did I mention they’re tiny?
It’s official – everything mini is cuter, and desserts on a stick taste better. Have the best of both worlds with these adorable treats. All it takes is store-bought pie dough, seedless jelly (or your favorite preserves), and lollipop sticks. You can make a quick glaze with confectioner’s sugar, water, and some fun food coloring. Throw some sprinkles on for extra delight!
Totally sweet, simple, and buzzworthy. Prepare these the same way you would any waffle except placing a popsicle stick in between pours of batter. The rest is pure fantasy. Make confetti by drizzling melted white chocolate on top and sprinkles. Or you can take the decadent route: melt chocolate on top, sprinkle on crushed Oreos, and create cookies n’ cream waffles.
Smores on a Stick
These classic summer treats are now reinvented by lollipop sticks and a blowtorch. You can make this using the same ingredients you’d get for regular smores! Puffy marshmallows, melted chocolate, and crushed graham crackers (and lollipop sticks). After popping them on to a stick, dip them in chocolate, roll them in graham crackers, and then lightly toast the tops. For a more rustic look, swap lollipop sticks for pretzel “twigs”!
Cookie Dough Pops
The perfect comfort food treat, this dessert is easier than you think to make. After all, there’s no baking required. Using a safe, egg-free cookie dough recipe, roll your cookie dough into balls. A bit of melting chocolate at the end of your stick will help secure everything before you pop it into your cookie dough. Dip the balls in chocolate, add a few sprinkles if you like, and then let them set! If you’re like me, you can’t make cookies without stealing a spoonful of raw dough for yourself. Now you can do it without worrying about E. Coli!
Mini Ice Cream Sandwich Pops
These sandwiches are assembled in a snap. Take ice cream sandwiches, cut them into mini sizes, pop a stick in and roll them in sprinkles! If you’re throwing a party, you can freeze them for later. Or enjoy these delectable sandwiches on your own. These are perfect for hosting last-minute plans and make for an Instagram worthy summer post.
Mini Cake Pops
You’ve never seen mini cake pops like these before. They’re adorable, LITERAL cakes, and making them is easy as baking a batch of brownies. After they cool, shape them into delicious little patties, stick ’em, and dip them in candy melts. Sprinkles and royal icing go a long way in terms of presentation points here. The candles can be cut down to mini sizes for the tiniest celebration ever. So. Cute.
Petit Fours Pops
These pops are a trendy take on the classic petit fours and require less than half the work. Pound cake, jam, and chocolate candy melts create this whimsical, over the top dessert (and lollipop sticks, of course). Don’t feel limited with the jam – you can use your favorite preserves, spreads, or filling. Make them for a tea party themed brunch or girl’s night.
Geode Cake Pops
Geode cakes are taking the web by storm. But you don’t have to order a fancy cake to get it on the fun! Make bite-sized versions with normal cake, candy melts, rock candy, and a variety of your favorite colored sprinkles. The process is meticulous, but the result is stunning. These are perfect for a glam birthday party or any other event where you want to show off your baking prowess. Jaws will hit the floor.
Apple Pie Pops
America’s favorite pie, but with a twist! Or should I say a stick? A simple apple pie recipe is transformed into an adorable treat by using heart-shaped cookie cutters and cute little red bows. Throw together an easy apple pie filling, and then use the cookie cutters on roll-out pie dough for bite-sized servings. A little sugar glaze adds extra sweetness.
Drunken Coffee Pops
This idea is genius. Who said popsicles were a kid’s treat? Cold brew coffee, Kahlua, coffee creamer, vodka, and chocolate syrup poured into popsicle molds make the perfect adult treat. For extra drama, dip them in melted chocolate and garnish with crushed pistachios, toasted coconut, or more chocolate! If you can’t decide on the best dessert for girl’s night, the choice has been made for you.
Cereal on a Stick
Let’s face it, you can put Rice Krispie treats on a stick – but where’s the fun in that? Mix it up by using a different delicious cereal! Pictured below are Trix treats bursting with fun color. Not only does putting it on a stick make it perfect for eating on the go, but it also adds a look of magic! Tap into your inner child with these gooey, crunchy, sweet marshmallow yummies.
Thin Mint Oreo Pops
Two of the world’s greatest cookies combined. This delicious treat is minty, creamy, and SO tasty! The best part is it only calls for five things – chocolate chips, Oreos, peppermint extract, and lollipop sticks. Add the peppermint extract to your melted chocolate chips for that refreshing mint flavor. After it’s done setting in the fridge, you can use the leftover chocolate to drizzle on top of your Oreo cookie pops. Superb!
Don’t get me wrong – donut hole pops are great, but aren’t these actual donut pops fantastic? It may not be as easy as Oreo pops, but god, they’re adorable. A basic baked donut recipe in a donut mold pan will get you past the first half – creating these delightful mini treats. Then you’ll need melted chocolate, popsicle sticks, and sprinkles to add some fun! Using a good, secure popsicle stick as opposed to a lollipop stick will add much more stability. The result is a delicious donut that is as cute as sin.
Molten Nutella Pops
Trade your midnight snack in for this socially acceptable alternative to spoon-feeding yourself delicious Nutella by the jar. They’re as easy as pie to make, too! Freeze scoops of Nutella into solid balls, stick ’em, and dip them in melted chocolate for the most decadent portable dessert you’ve ever had. Add some crunch by crushing hazelnuts to use as an outer coating. It’s rich, classy, and yummy enough to make you moan.
Disneyland may be top dog when it comes to churros, but that doesn’t mean you can’t impress your friends with these at your next party. This simple cake recipe is elevated with a cinnamon-sugar coating that is to die for. Warm, nostalgic, and oh so good. Try frying the dough balls for extra crunch. To take it to the next level, pump a dulce de leche filling inside each one.
Bailey’s Cake Pops
Perfect for St. Patty’s Day, these boozy pops are filled with a delicious, decadent dark chocolate Guinness cake and Bailey’s buttercream. Mini pipettes are trimmed down to size, filled with a mini shot of Bailey’s, and popped right into these bad boys before the chocolate coating has dried. It makes for an adorable and whimsical presentation that is mouthwateringly good. If you missed St. Patrick’s Day, try swapping the green frosting for pink and regular Bailey’s for their yummy Red Velvet flavor. Talk about a fun date night!
