No-Bake Cheesecake Cookie Pops
- YIELD: About 14 pops
- 18 vanilla sandwich cookies with cream filling
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons lemon zest
- 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips or white candy melts
- Rainbow sprinkles, for topping
- Lollipop sticks
In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the sandwich cookies until they are roughly chopped. Add the cream cheese, lemon juice and lemon zest, pulsing the mixture until it is combined and there are no large pieces of cookie remaining.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper. Using your hands, scoop out a portion of the cookie mixture and roll it into 1-inch balls, arranging the balls on the baking sheet. Insert a lollipop stick into each cookie ball then freeze them for 30 minutes.
Melt the chocolate chips or candy melts until they are smooth. Dip each cookie pop into the chocolate then immediately top it with sprinkles. Return each coated cookie pop to the baking sheet then refrigerate them for 10 minutes or until the chocolate is set.
