When talking about the Valentine’s Day my boy has not changed a bit compared to previous year. As soon as the month Feb. started, he got excited and started the count down from day one till 14th and he started wishing from as early as 12th and he even wished me “Happy Valentine’s eve” on 13th, valentine’s day is so special for him. So for such a special occasion I should give him special, not something buy from the shop, it should be made with love so I decide to surprise him with ‘chocolate cookie pop’ treat as he is a chocolate boy, I mean chocolate is his favorite. I made this treat with love especially for him and I could see how thrilled he was, not knowing what I am making and trying to peek in-between and he was totally surprised to a see cookie on a Popsicle and he loved it. My girl not knowing what’s all the excitement about acted the same way as her brother and enjoyed the cookie.
Butter or margarine, softened – 2/3 Cup
Granulated sugar - 1-1/4 cups
Vanilla extract – 1 tsp
Egg – 1
All-purpose flour - 1-1/2 cups
Cocoa Powder - 1/2 cup ( I used Hershey’s)
Salt – ½ tsp
Baking soda – ¼ tsp
Popsicle sticks - 10
Pink frostings for decoration
Heat oven to 350°F.
Beat butter, sugar, water and vanilla in large bowl on medium speed of mixer until well blended. Add egg and beat well.
Stir together flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda. Gradually add to sugar mixture, beating on low speed just until blended.
Refrigerate dough until firm enough to handle, say for 10 mins.
Roll dough into small ball and place on cookie sheet and leave enough space between the cookies as they spread while baking.
Insert wooden Popsicle stick about three quarters of the way into side of each ball. Flatten slightly.
Bake for 15 minutes or until outside edges are firm and center is set.
Cool several minutes on cookie sheet. Cool completely and decorate the cookie with pink frosting as you like. Enjoy!!!
