Cookie Pops

  • 12 store-bought gingersnaps
  • ¼ cup toasted pepitas
  • ½ cup peanut butter chips
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree

Cookie Pop Coating

  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • ¼ cup chopped pepitas


  • Place gingersnaps and pepitas in food processor and process into fine crumbs.
  • Place peanut butter chips in a medium bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir. If they are not melted all the way yet, microwave in 10-second increments until smooth.
  • Stir pumpkin puree into the melted peanut butter chips. Add the gingersnap crumbs to the peanut butter pumpkin mixture and combine with your hands.
  • Shape the mixture into small balls. A ½ tablespoon measuring spoon is the perfect size! Place the pumpkin balls on waxed paper. If you would like to use lollipop sticks, now is the time to insert them into each cookie ball. Set them in the refrigerator to cool and harden a bit, about 20 minutes.
  • Melt white chocolate with coconut oil in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Microwave for additional 10-second increments, if necessary.
  • Working one at a time, roll each cookie dough ball in white chocolate, transfer to a baking rack or waxed paper, and sprinkle with chopped pepitas, or your desired garnish like nuts, chopped chocolate, sprinkles, coconut flakes — or whatever you love.
  • Store loosely covered at room temperature.
