Firstly, line a baking tray with parchment paper and in a large bowl, remove all the Gookie Dough out of the tub and mix it with the vanilla extract with an electric whisk until it is thoroughly combined. Cover the bowl and put in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes.
Scoop a bit of the chilled dough up with an ice cream scoop and use your hands to shape it into a smooth ball. Pop it onto the lined baking tray and repeat with the remaining cookie dough. This should make quite a few cake pops (unless you can't resist eating it all from the bowl).
Melt the candy melts in a small, deep bowl in the microwave and follow the directions on the pack to ensure it is completed correctly.
Dip the end of one of the lollipop sticks into the candy melt and then insert that end about 1/2 inch into a Gookie Dough ball. Repeat this with the remaining sticks and dough balls. Now place the tray of cookie dough balls in the freezer until completely solid.

Re-melt the candy melts and place a block of styrofoam on the countertop. Dip each ball into the melted candy and turn, letting all the excess drip back into the bowl. Now decorate. Sprinkle with finely chopped nuts, sprinkles or sugar strands. Make it rainbow and magical!
Carefully insert the end of the lollipop stick into the styrofoam block to allow the cake pops to set correctly. Repeat with the remaining cookie dough pops. Place the cookie dough pops back on the tray or wrap in lollipop wrappers and store in the fridge.
Simple, delicious, spring-like and adorable. Dress them up and give them as a gift. Perfect for picnics and the odd occasion, they're bound to go down an absolute treat. And because they're made with Gookie Dough, even better!
