I have to make Chocolate chip cookies on a stick and last time I made them the cookies fell off. The cookies were just too heavy to hold up on the stick. I used the lolli pop sticks last time. How do I make these with out them falling apart? Please help.
www.karenscookies.net has a chocolate chip cookie recipe that might work. They're made to use with a cookie cutter.
Thanks but I have to use my own recipe because that is what she has tasted already. No one else knows?
Well, apparently your recipe won't work as is. Since we don't know it it's difficult to help you modify it. Offhand I'd say add more flour to make a stiffer, sturdier dough. Make sure it's chilled. Lollipop sticks wouldn't work here. You'll need popsicle sticks. They're flat and will give the cookie more to "grasp."
I agree with mija; Karen's recipe is a good option.
I use a recipe similar to the Nestle tollhouse recipe. I just add more flavoring and more chocolate chips. I will try to get some popsicle sticks. Where do you get popsicle sticks from? Thanks for helping me.
You can get them at most craft stores. Michaels and Jo-Ann's have them here. I'm not sure you'd find them at cake supplies.
Nestles is pretty soft, if I remember correctly. (I only make them around Christmas.) Try adding a little more flour -- start with a 1/4 cup and go from there. Knead it in until it is a little stiffer and not sticky. Roll into a ball and then slide your stick in. Go about 1/4 to not quite 1/2 way; remember the dough will spread. Moosh (?) the ball just a tiny bit to make sure the dough adheres to the stick. I don't know how big you're making the cookies. Try a few to see how much weight the stick/cookie will take.
As a last resort, you could wrap the cookies in cellophane and attach them to the sticks. They wouldn't be lollipops but you could put them in a bouquet. (If that's what you're doing.)
Have you tried using the Wilton cookie pan. By pressing the dough into the pan it might stay together better. HTH
