Sweetheart Pops

Martha Stewart Living, February 1997

You'll surely win hearts with these confectionery valentines: sugar-cookie lollipops embedded with candy hearts or layered into frosted sandwiches. Using a tiny cookie cutter, make heart-shaped cutouts into unbaked round cookies (bottom, left), and press lollipop sticks into the underside of the dough. After baking, let the cookies cool on the pan. Then, fill the hearts with hot sugar syrup (bottom, right); the syrup will harden as it cools. (Use caution around sugar syrup when it's hot.) For sandwich cookies, position lollipop sticks between pairs of baked cookies, and join with filling. Meanwhile, bake the cut-out hearts; use frosting to glue them onto the sandwiches. Decorate with royal icing.

    You do bake the cookies with the stick already in. If you click on the detailed directions for Valentine Heart Pops (right above the photos on this page) it will take you through step by step. Good luck!

    do you bake the cookies with the sticks in them or do you put them in after the cookies are baked
