Alligator Cookie Pops


  • 12 circus peanut candies
  • 14 lollipop sticks
  • 1 package (14 ounces) green Wilton candy melts
  • 12 Nutter Butter cookies
  • 24 miniature semisweet chocolate chips (about 1/2 teaspoon)
  • 24 semisweet chocolate chips (about 1 tablespoon)
  • 1/3 cup white baking chips, melted
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted


  • 1. Cut a slit in each circus peanut, forming a mouth. Using two lollipop sticks, prop mouths open. Let stand for 30 minutes.
  • 2. In a microwave, melt candy melts; stir until smooth. Twist apart cookies. Dip the end of a lollipop stick into melted coating and place on a cookie half; replace cookie top. Repeat. Place pops on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet; refrigerate for 10 minutes or until set.
  • 3. Meanwhile, dip a circus peanut in coating and allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper. Repeat with remaining circus peanuts; let stand until set.
  • 4. Reheat candy melts if necessary; dip a cookie pop in coating and allow excess to drip off. Insert stick into a styrofoam block to stand. While wet, position a coated circus peanut on the cookie for a head. Repeat.
  • 5. For eyes, attach a miniature chocolate chip to each chocolate chip using melted white chips. Attach to head using melted chocolate. Using remaining melted chocolate, pipe nostrils onto faces; pipe teeth with melted white chips. Let stand until set.
