the lollipop stick underneath the dough. Gently press the dough
around the stick.
Bake the cookies in a preheated 350-degree oven for 12 to 15

If you want to frost the cookies, mix a cup of frosting with a
few drops of food coloring. Frost the cookies and then place the
M&M'S? Brand Milk Chocolate Candies on the cookie.
If you do not want to frost the cookies, just dab a bit of
white icing on the M&M'S? Brand Milk Chocolate Candies and place
them on the cookie in a happy face pattern.
Get creative (optional): Cut STARBURST? Fruit Chews into
circles, triangles or other shapes to create eyes, ears, noses or
hair. To give as gifts, wrap each cookie in a square of cellophane
tied with a ribbon.
