Mum's Chocolate Chip Butterball Pops

Sue Fitzpatrick


Typically, another cookie only made at Christmas and made with love for my son, Chris, by Grandma every year. You can use sticks like in the picture or you can dip the ball into melted chocolate so it looks like a little cap and sit it upright to set :)
