Clock Pie Pops for New Year’s Eve

Author Dorothy Kern

Ingredients

  • Refrigerated pie crusts (making 2” rounds gets you about 10 pops per crust)
  • Chocolate chips or other filling
  • Lollipop sticks (or an oven-safe equivalent)
  • White candy melts
  • Edible food writer (black)

Instructions

  • Unroll pie crust and cut 2” circles using a small round cookie cutter and re-rolling dough as necessary.
  • If using a Babycakes Pie Pop Maker: preheat the appliance. Lay one round in each cavity, place a lollipop stick in the center, add some chocolate chips or other desired filling, and top with a second crust. Close and cook for about 5 minutes. Remove and cool.
  • If using oven: preheat to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. If you want your clocks on sticks, you should be sure to use an oven-safe stick. (A popsicle/craft stick is oven safe. White lollipop sticks are not). Place crust rounds on prepared cookie sheet and place sticks and filling in the center of each. Top with a second crust and use a fork to seal the edges. Bake until browned (probably 8-10 minutes). Cool.
  • Once pops are cooled, melt your candy melts according to package directions. Pour into a tall glass. (If it is cold in your house, try heating an electric griddle to it’s lowest setting and covering it with a kitchen towel. Place your bowl/glass of melted candy on the griddle so the melts will stay hot.)
  • In one movement, dip the pops in the glass of melts. Tap of the excess (tap the hand holding the stick, not the stick itself). Place upright to harden. (You can use a bowl filled with beans or a foam block for this.)
  • Once the pops are hardened, draw the face of the clock on with edible food writers.
