Valentine Cookie Pops are sure to bring a smile to anyone who receives one.
If you’re looking for a quick, last-minute Valentine treat for your kids, to take to work or send into a school party these Valentine cookie pops are for you. You read that right, they are quick because they start with refrigerated sugar cookie dough. I used a store-bought frosting in the interest of time but usually prefer homemade. This white chocolate buttercream frosting would be a delicious homemade option.
Prep work for Valentine cookie pops.
Once the slicing of the sugar cookie dough is done, get the kids involved in making the dough rounds. It’s a perfect opportunity to teach kids how to cook while having a little fun. Even as teenagers, I got my boys in the kitchen to help with these cookies.
Keep the round shape by cupping the cookie dough in your hand.
The secret to keeping the round shape is to roll the slice into a ball, then cup the ball in your hand and gently, repeat gently, insert the wooden stick. Be careful not to pierce the ball all the way through. If you do, it’s an easy fix. Just re-roll and try again.
Valentine Cookie Pops ready for decorating.
Once the cookie pops are completely cooled frost and decorate as desired. While my kids and I used a variety of sprinkles for decorations, you could use just about any type of candies. Set out a few different types and have fun. Time in the kitchen with my kids is special for me.
Other Valentine treat ideas include Valentine brown sugar bars and white chocolate Valentine bars. They would be fun to make, along with these cookie pops, for a holiday spread.

Valentine cookie pops make a great after school treat but are also perfect for that class party.



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a silicon baking mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Slice sugar cookies into 17 equal pieces. Form each slice into a ball. Cupping the ball in your hand gently insert a popsicle stick halfway and place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining slices.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 11 - 12 minutes or until edges are golden and cookies are set.
  4. Cool 2 - 3 minutes on baking sheet before removing to wire rack to cool completely. Use a spatula for transferring cookies as wooden stick will be hot and cookies will still be fragile.
  5. Once cook, frost top of cookies and decorate with sprinkles.
