I'm not much of a chef. I don't make dinner's very often. Part of it is because I don't like to cook very much. And the other part is because my kids are super picky, so any effort I put in to a nice dinner, is totally wasted on them.
But baking? That's different. I very much enjoy baking. I like to see the finished result, especially when it's presented cutely. There's something so gratifying about it, wouldn't you agree?? Plus, who doesn't like dessert?
One of my favorite desserts, is a good old fashioned chocolate chip cookie. There's also something so comforting about a chocolate chip cookie. My family and I make them fairly often, not just for ourselves, but to give to others.

I decided to make some chocolate chip cookies the other day, but I got inspired to make them extra fun! Thus, cookies on a stick -- with frosting and sprinkles. I feel like they would be super cute to make for parties. Baby shower, bridal showers, birthday parties...or just for fun!!
- 2 packages (or however many you want) of Nestle Toll House Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
- Wooden craft sticks (popsicle sticks)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
- Break apart your Nestle Toll House cookie dough, and insert your wooden sticks into the center and place them onto your cookie sheet.
- Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown.
While your cookies are baking, this would be a great time to make your frosting! (I used this recipe)
- When your cookies are done baking, let them cool completely. I stick mine in the fridge to speed up the process.
- Line the outside of your cookie with frosting, and then add your sprinkles!
At this point, I would also throw your finished cookie sticks in the fridge again to let the frosting harden.
Serve & Enjoy!
I actually cut some of the cookie dough balls into quarters, so that it would make 4 bite size cookies. They were perfect to fill the bottom of the mason jar!
I'm always looking for new ways to spice up a plain cookie. What are some of your favorite ways to do that? Have you tried making cookies on a stick before??
