The frog ate my cookie?

Pin It!

Ribbit Ribbit!

The following is what happens when a group of very-mature girls in their mid-twenties gets together:


Hi, my name is Fred.

Under my green exterior lies a Cookie Ball Pop.

I am 100% edible, right down to my… wait a second, where are my feet?!?!

frog pop

I smile because I have no idea what’s going on.

Y’all, I know it’s supposed to be a “feature you” post on the schedule. But I didn’t get a chance to finish writing said post because of all the fun my friends and I were having yesterday, making cookie ball pops. So instead, how about a quick tutorial post? (And I promise to have the other post up this weekend.)

How to decorate a Cookie Pop:
(So easy a caveman frog can do it.)

You will need: fondant and Cookie Ball Pops.


Step One: Roll fondant into a circle big enough to cover the Cookie Ball Pop. (We used white fondant and colored it green with food coloring.)


Step Two: Roll out two more circles, and attach on top. We used an icing writer for the mouth… and those are cacao nibs for the eyes!


Now you have your very own Fred!
Be sure you’re prepared with all of his favorite foods.


Fred likes my Mint Chocolate-Chip Milkshakes.

Oh, and flies. Lots of flies. Sadly, we ran out of time to make more than one pop. The frog had to come first; I kinda have a thing for fondant frogs. We’re planning another get-together, and pigs have been discussed. Maybe ducks too.

    Mmm… frogs… are vegans even allowed to eat frog cookie pops? Haha, of course! You’re so creative! Other animals to try: rabbits, cats, yellow chicks (healthier peeps?), monkies, or even dinosaurs. Yeah… you’re so creative I’m sure you could make giraffe and zebra pops. 😉 I look forward to seeing what your next victim… err… creation will be.

    1. I saw a comic once, where the dad said to the mom, “Please tell Junior that it’s ok for vegetarians to eat animal crackers!” 🙂

    If Snickerdoodle Pancakes are anywhere near as good as Snickerdoodle Oatmeal, then YES! 🙂 Love Fred, too – super cute 🙂

    I could use a little friend like FRed!! but…. is it okay to eat your friends?… cuz thats very likely in this situation!
    MAKE A PENGUIN! I love how cute they are… defs wnt one as a pet

    1. Ooo me too! I used to want a monkey as a pet. But then I heard a story about a monkey who cracked a coconut on his owner’s head. Then monkeys scared me!

  7. Shannon says:

    Oh my goodness, that is amazing. I may just have to get some fondant and try making something similar myself. I think your cookie pops may just be the new cupcake. =)

  8. Hela says:

  9. Demelza says:

    It sounds like you and your friends had a blast! I wish I could hang out with you, haha.
    I know how picky Foodgawker and other sites like it are from reading Averie’s site a while back. I think she said she submitted multiple photos of a certain recipe, and sometimes it was accepted, sometimes not (depending on which person looked at it, I guess!).
    But I’m really excited you’ve had so many photos accepted. ^^

    P.S. You should totally make the ponies from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. ;]

    1. I love My Little Ponies!!! 🙂
