Hello fellow crafters! I am Becky from U Create Crafts! I am happy to be here sharing a fun twist on the Push Pops craze. My family are huge cookie fans so I decided to fill the push pops with sugar cookies, frosting and marshmallow creme. This 4th of July treat is simple and delicious…and a fun kind of messy!
- Mini Sugar Cookies (got mine at a local bakery)
- Plastic Push Pops
- White Frosting
- Wilton’s Icing Colors (Royal Blue and No-Taste Red)
- Marshmallow Creme
- Little Venice Cupcake Starter Kit
- Red Sugar Crystals
- Glitter Tape
- Silver Curling Ribbon
Step 1: Mix half the white frosting with No-Taste Red Icing dye until you have a true red color. Mix the rest of the white frosting with the Royal Blue until you get a true blue color.
Step 2: Fill 3 pastry bags from your Cupcake Starter Kit: one with red frosting, one with blue frosting and one with the marshmallow creme. This is a fun and totally messy process that my kids thoroughly enjoyed!
Step 3: Center your push pop in the middle of the cookie. Press down to create the perfect size cookie for your treat. Repeat this 5 times for every push pop you are planning to make.
Step 4: Slide a cookie to the bottom of the push pop. Add a layer of red frosting. Add another cookie and then a layer of marshmallow creme. Add a cookie and then a layer of blue frosting. Continue this process until you have all 5 cookies in the push pop.
Step 5: Top the final cookie with marshmallow creme and sprinkle with red sugar crystals. Replace the push pop lid and put in the freezer while you make the other push pops. IMPORTANT: Do not lay the push pops on their side. Instead, grab a shoe box, make small x’s and push the handle of the push pop through. This will hold them straight up while they freeze.
When you have all the push pops complete, decorate them!
These treats were a HUGE hit with my children…and my husband. They are fun and messy and incredibly delicious! Enjoy creating!
