Valentine’s Day Cookie Pops
I love the peek of red from the dried cranberries. It’s a nice change from traditional chocolate chip, but you can definitely recreate these with any type of cookie! Everything is cuter on a lollipop stick, right? If you’re taking them on the go, bag them with a cute pink or red ribbon. These cookie pops make a fabulous favor or school classroom treat.
