Cutie Pie Pops

Cutie Pie Pops for Valentine’s Day! These adorable treats on a stick are stuffed with Valentine M&M’s.

Cutie Pie PopsThis must be the week for cute desserts! Yesterday’s post was for Hot Chocolate Cookie Cups and today we’ve got Cutie Pie Pops. After looking over my most popular posts from the past year, I realized that 2 of the posts were pie pops and promised to make some more soon. Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse for making cute, sweet treats! It took me a while to decide what filling to put in the pie pops. The most obvious choice would be something pink or red. I thought about using jelly but my kids only like grape jelly. While walking around Target, we spotted the Valentine M&M’s and decided to use them to fill the Cutie Pie Pops.

M&M Cookie Pops RecipeUnroll 2 Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts on silicone mat and cut out eight 2 1/2 inch shapes from each pie crust (I used a cookie cutter with a scalloped edge: Blossom Nesting Metal Cutters) so that you have a total of 16 circles. I had to knead and re-roll the scraps to get 8 out of each crust.

Place 8 of the cutouts on a silicon baking mat or parchment paper lined baking sheet. Pile about 8 M&M’s  into the center of eight of the circles. Position a lollipop stick so that the top reaches the center of the circle and gently press it into the dough.

Brush Egg WhiteGently flatten the remaining 8 pie crust dough circles so that they are a little bigger. Place them over the M&M’s. Use a fork to crimp the edges together. Brush lightly with a beaten egg white.

Pie Pops RecipeBake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.

Valentine's Day RecipesMelt 2 ounces of vanilla CandiQuik or white chocolate chips. Frost the tops of the pie pops with the vanilla candy coating and top with sprinkles.

M&M Valentines Pie PopsMy kids think they taste better when they are warm so feel free to put the Cutie Pie Pops in the microwave for a few seconds to warm them up before eating them.

    This was so fun & easy to make. I used leftover mnm easter candies & pre-made pie crusts. I just used a 2 in circle cookie cutter. They turned out cute! Thanks!

    Oh wow, my daughters would love these! 🙂 Using peanut butter cups sounds really delicious. This is something the girls can do that would be fun for them.

    check out my site, recent post: Strawberry Pie

        The Pillsbury product I used is for a pie crust. It is premade and ready-to-use but you could make a pie crust at home and get the same results. I’ve never tried using a puff pastry but it might be delicious!

        Short crust pastry seems to be closer than puff pastry. Puff pastry is more flaky. When making pies shortcrust gets used for the base and puff pastry for the top. Puff pastry for the base can end up soggy. Blind baking is used with short crust pastry but only necessary with larger pies to ensure it cooks right through. Filo pastry is another option. Depends on your taste. Hope this helps.

      Hi Chela,
      I’ve never had an issue with them burning but if you are concerned I would suggest using a wooden popsicle stick instead! Happy baking!
