Round butter cookies are sandwiched with a chocolate-hazelnut filling, with a lollipop or popsicle stick. They can then be decorated as you wish with frosting or icing and/or colored sugar.


  • For the cookies:
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

  • 1 large egg yolk

  • 1-3/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • For the filling:
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped hazelnuts, or almonds

  • For decorations:
  • 24 lollipop sticks

  • frosting and/or icing (optional)

  • beaten egg (optional)


  • Make the cookies:
  • Combine butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and egg yolk in medium bowl. Add flour, baking powder and salt; mix well. Cover; refrigerate until firm, about 4 hours, or overnight. Pre-heat oven to 350F and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll dough on floured surface or between two sheets of waxed paper to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out 48 circles using 2-inch round cookie cutter. If desired, cut out shapes (such as faces, pictured above, or other shapes, pictured below) in half of the cookies. Place 24 circles on prepared baking sheets.
  • Make the filling and assemble cookies:
  • Combine melted chocolate and hazelnuts. Spread rounded 1/2 tsp. chocolate mixture in center of each dough circle on cookie sheet. Place lollipop sticks on circles so that tips of sticks are imbedded in filling. Top with remaining dough circles (if you have cut out faces or other shapes, use these cut out circles as the top); seal edges of dough together with floured fork tines. If you are not going to decorate these with frosting, you can brush them lightly with beaten egg. Bake 10 to 12 minutes until edges begin to lightly brown. Remove to wire racks; cool completely. Once cool, decorate with frosting or icing, as desired.

So good. I made it for Thanksgiving and I cut out turkeys and put themon a stick. So good.

This was a big hit with the kids as a stocking stuffer peeking out from the top of a stocking. Yes, these are sweet cookies but very tasty. I used a butter pecan extract for flavor in the cookie dough and a peppermint extract in my other batch of these and it did the trick. If you want a melt in your mouth cookie, this is not, and it isn't designed to be because if it was, it would be too soft and crumbely/it would not hold properly on a stick.

I would not make this recipe again because it tastes to sweet and sugary. If you like it than you can but I perfer the more melt-in-your-mouth cookie type.

Very good cookies!

Wow! These were a hit with the preschoolers AND the high schoolers in my house. To speed things up, we made another batch with Pillsbury prepared sugar cookie dough. We also sprinkled them with colored sugar, omitting the frosting. We wrapped them like lollipops, with green Saran wrap and a red curly ribbon. This will become a cookie tradition in our house!

Cookie was very cute and tasty but I can't say that I would make it again. My first batch of dough did not come out very good, tossed and started over. Maybe a good time saver would to buy cookie dough and go from there.
- A Baker

They take a little time to make, and the colored gel takes a very long time to dry, but they are very cute and taste good too. I made them in the shape of little snowmen for a children holiday party, the kids enjoyed that very much.
