New Year’s Eve Edible Popper Cookies

This post is sponsored by Voortman Bakery. Thank you to Voortman for partnering with me. And thank you readers for supporting the brands that support this blog and my family.

New Year’s Eve is one of my kiddos favorite holidays. I mean, when else am I going to let them eat whatever they want, watch TV, stay up until midnight, and then scream a countdown? I’ll tell ya…one night only: New Year’s Eve. We keep our traditions for the night simple, but they’re fun and we’ve created our own little festive family evening out of the holiday. Dinner is appetizers, I leave trays of our favorite treats out, we drink sparkling cider with twelve frozen grapes plopped inside. This year, I was struck with inspiration when I picked up a few packages of our favorite Voortman’s wafer cookies and created these fun New Year’s Eve Edible Popper Cookies. The chocolate dipped wafers are decorated with popping candy for a wild new year’s eve treat that creates little edible fireworks to enjoy at midnight.

Let’s begin with the necessary supplies: popping candy, Voortman’s Chocolate Mint Wafers, and black melting candy.

I start with our favorite seasonal flavor from Voortman’s, chocolate mint.

Then I dunk them in some black melting candy to represent the night sky.

And transfer them to parchment paper.

And while the melted candy is still wet, I sprinkle popping candy over the cookies.

Once the chocolate is set, the cookies are ready to enjoy.

Display them on some fun gold streamers for a fun New Year’s Eve display.

This treat is so quick to make and are such a hit with kiddos. The cookies are crispy and delicious and the popping candy adds a fun surprise. As an added bonus for parents, these are poppers that the kids can eat that make a minimal amount of noise. Kind of. But I much prefer the sounds of excited squeals over actual popper bangs.

Voortman Bakery offers a wide variety of wafer flavors (do not miss out on chocolate mint before the season is over) in classics like chocolate, vanilla, and blueberry, but also offers a variety of seasonal flavors like the chocolate mint featured here. Be sure to visit them at the Voortman Bakery website and on their Facebook page.
