Tasty Tuesday- Sprinkles Edition

Our morning was....ahem...rough.  Let's just say that when I caught this one chugging sprinkles at ten o'clock a.m....I didn't say anything.

I took a picture instead.  He was happy and that made me happy.  I did eventually have to take them away, but promised we'd use them to bake with in the afternoon.  We made Cookie Pops!  I totally cheated (don't I always) and really wouldn't feel right calling this a recipe...because...well it's not.  It was a Pillsbury Funfetti Cookie Pop Kit courtesy of Good Ole' Wal-Mart!  We sampled them after dinner and they are "tasty"!  
You'll need the Funfetti Kit (if you're going to cheat like me), a stick of butter and an egg.

Ryder is convinced that if you eat an egg, a baby bird will grow in your tummy. Ha!  

Pre-heat to 350 Degrees and follow the directions on the box.  Note:  Melt the butter all the way.  It says that it should be really soft so I didn't melt it completely.  It made mixing a little more difficult...especially for little hands.
Stir, stir stir and then roll the dough into tablespoon sized balls and place them on a baking sheet.  I had to insert the sticks.  The cookie would fall apart when R tried which was very frustrating to him.
Bake them for about 12 minutes and let cool completely.  You can use the provided "Sprinkles" to decorate, but we of course needed more!  We like lots of sprinkles.  Here is the end result...
Not the best picture...but it gets the idea across :) 
He was super excited...I am pretty sure this was the sprinkles talking!  Love him!
