First, I’m going to show you how I made these delicious Little Debbie Nutty Bar Cookie Pops!
Then I’m going to let you know how to WIN them!
Mmmmmm…. peanut butter Nutty Bars…. drool….
Break up the Nutty Bars in a halves or thirds to fit into a food processor.
There is no need to add anything to the Nutty Bars!
Let the food processor run for 30 – 45 seconds to break up all of the cookies. The texture will look a bit gritty, but the moisture from the peanut butter will hold a ball shape just fine.
Measure out with a Tablespoon or a cookie scoop, or you can eyeball a 1.5 inch dough ball.
Roll smooth, place on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper, cover with wax paper and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Melt your chocolate candy wafers in the microwave or a double boiler. Don’t get them too hot. Three 30 second intervals in the microwave at 60% power. Stir, stir, stir allowing the chocolate to melt slowly.
Dip 1/4 inch of a lollipop stick into the chocolate and then insert it into the cookie pop. Stand them up in Styrofoam to dry on the stick. Dip the pop straight down into the chocolate ensuring that the entire pop is covered and pull straight up. Do not twist or roll the pop in the chocolate; you’ll risk the pop falling off the stick. Allow the excess chocolate to drip off and then stand up in the Styrofoam. The pops will dry very quickly. To see pictures of the dipping procedure, click here.
Once they are all dipped, melt a handful (about 20) peanut butter flavored candy melts in a baggie. Leaving the bag open, microwave for 20 second intervals at 60% power. Massaging baggie until all is melted. Snip the very point of the baggie off and seal the top. The size of the hole will determine the size of the lines. Add lines or swirls to decorate the pops. If your house temperature is less than 80 degrees, these will be fine in a container on the counter. Of course, you can always place them in the fridge for a little extra snap.

I don't remember exactly how many I got. I'd have to guess that I got 2 small pops per nutty bar. It really depends on the size of pop you make.

I have to say my favorite are the peanut butter ones with the cookie in it. Not sure what they are called. I wonder if those could be made into cake pops. Love your ideas. You inspire me. Have a blessed week. Happy baking!!!
