How to Make Alligator Cookie Pops


  1. Cut a slit in a circus peanut candy, forming a mouth. Prop mouth open with 2 lollipop sticks. Let stand 30 minutes. Melt green Wilton candy melts in a microwave; stir until smooth.
  2. Twist apart a Nutter Butter cookie. Dip one end of a lollipop stick into melted coating and place on cookie half; replace top. Chill on a wax paper-lined baking sheet for 10 minutes or until set. Dip circus peanut in coating and allow excess to drip off. Place on wax paper; let stand until set. Dip the cookie pop in coating (reheat candy melts if needed), allowing excess to drip off. Insert stick into styrofoam block to stand.
  3. Position coated circus peanut for head while cookie pop is wet. Decorate face as desired with mini chips, chocolate chips, melted white baking chips and chocolate covered mints.
