Holiday Chocolate Bonbon Pops
Ingredients
18
chocolate sandwich cookies with cream filling
3/4
cup pecans, toasted
3
tablespoons orange liqueur or orange juice
2
2
tablespoons light color corn syrup
20
lollipop sticks
1
cup milk chocolate pieces, white baking pieces, or semisweet chocolate pieces
1
teaspoon shortening
 
Toasted coconut, nonpareils, and/or finely chopped pecans (optional)
Directions
  1. In large food processor bowl, combine cookies and the 3/4 cup pecans. Cover and process with on/off turns until cookies are crushed. Add orange liqueur, cocoa powder, and corn syrup. Cover and process until combined.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Shape cookie mixture into 1-inch balls. Place balls on prepared baking sheet; insert a lollipop stick into each ball. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  3. In a small saucepan, stir chocolate pieces and shortening over medium-low heat just until mixture is melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Spoon the melted chocolate over cookies. If desired, sprinkle with toasted coconut, nonpareils, and/or finely chopped pecans. Loosely cover and chill about 1 hour or until chocolate is set. If pops contain orange liqueur, the flavor will mellow in a few days.
