Lollipop Flower Pots

"These candies/cookies look like little pots, complete with dirt and flowers growing out of them. So cute, especially for any spring time function where there's children."

  1. I read through all of the reviews, made test batches with caramel and pb cups, and determined that the peanut butter cups are easier to eat than the caramel ones. My lollipops didn't fall over, and I owe it to the fact that I (a) used dum dums, but cut about 3/4 of an inch of the stick off (b) waited until the cups had completely cooled (I even refrigerated one batch for 15 minutes to make sure that it was cool enough) and then put the sticks with spearmint leaves on (which I sliced into fours). If I did it again, I might use the gummy fruit, because you can taste the spearmint on the pb cup, if too close, and that leaves a weird taste. Once done, everyone thought these were ADORABLE- including myself!
  2. The idea is good and look very cute. However, the lollipops were very top heavy and the entire pot kept tipping over. The cookie crumbs would fall out and the caramel was too hard mixed with the cookie. Might try the peanut butter cup idea next time instead and since the sugar cookie easily crumbles will need to use muffin cups so they hold together.
  3. Very cute and a big hit at my daughter's birthday party. I would highly recommend using muffin tin liners to ease the removal of the "pots."
  4. Oh so cute! I made these for my 8 year old's v-day party at school and got lots of oohh's and ahhh's. One thing that I did different was bake the cookies first and as soon as they come out of the oven then put the caramels in. Make sure to use muffin cups if doing it this way. And then let cool completely. Because I used bigger lollipops this helped to give them more support! Thanks so much for this fun recipe!!!
  5. These were so cute when they were made! I made these as one of the treats for my twins birthday for school. They were a hit and mighty tasty too! I used the little cookie squares which worked perfect and instead of the caramel we used pb cups. Thanks for sharing this wonderful idea.


  1. ADORABLE! I never review stuff until I've tried it, but I just couldn't resist for these. They are too cute and I can't wait to try it. I love the fact that you use premade cookie dough instead of cupcake batter; much easier! Will report back and update review after making, but I can tell you right now.. my daughter is going to freak. Gorgeous photo too jonesies!


I am lucky enough to be "living the good life". I have the most wonderful husband and two terrific teenage daughters. We reside in Central Pennsylvania where we have the luck of having four full seasons. Between my husband and myself, we have two full time jobs, three businesses and one part time job. We are very busy, but try to take it easy when we can and enjoy the wonderful life we have been blessed with. Future plans include moving to an inherited 45 acre farm in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains. This will occur if and when our DD's leave the nest. We love to travel and have enjoyed seeing all of North America and a large portion of the United States together. Since discovering Zaar, I have to say my life has become more flavorful! I have learned that it's easier than I thought to have an organized, well-planned and yet creative and fun kitchen! I love the features of Zaar, but especially enjoy the people. I have become addicted to the forums and now love taking photos of the food I prepare. I am officially a Zaar junky! I've also started taking pictures of most of the recipes I prepare...Here are some of the pics I've taken of dishes that are available at Zaar: <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" src="" height="360" width="480"><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" style="float:left;border-width: 0;" ></a><a href="¤t=442caae0.pbw" target="_blank"><img src="" style="float:left;border-width: 0;" ></a> I love most foods. My only dislikes are green peppers and coffee...weird, huh? Been trying to eat and cook healthier for the children and to help control DH's high cholesterol. I anything cheesy, salty and crunchy. Needless to say I dream about nachos in my sleep! <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Recipezaar Challenge 2008"></a>
