Cookie Butter Kix Pops Kids Can Make Themselves
The beauty of these easy-to-make, nut-free, no-bake treats is that kids can make them with little or no help. While the lollipop sticks aren’t necessary, they sure do make these much more fun to eat. If you like, sneak some banana slices in these treats, too!
You may substitute any nut butter for the cookie butter as long as it’s thick enough to keep its shape and not stick too much to your fingers. Find cookie butter in specialty supermarkets such as Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s. Find the lollipop sticks in the craft store.
