DIRECTIONS

  • In a large food processor bowl combine cookies and 3/4 cup of the nuts; pulse until cookies are crushed. Add orange juice, corn syrup, and cocoa powder; process until combined. Add remaining nuts; pulse until coarsely chopped.
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Shape the cookie mixture into 1" balls. Place on a baking sheet, insert a lollipop stick, and freeze for about 30 minutes.
  • In a small saucepan combine the chocolate chips and shortening. Cook and stir over medium-low heat just until melted. Remove from heat. Dip pops in melted chocolate. Return to baking sheet.
  • Loosely cover and refrigerate 1 hour or until chocolate coating is set. If using liqueur, flavor will mellow after a day or two. Enjoy!
