  • Pre-heat the oven to 400°.
  • Mix together the softened butter and sugar. 
  • Then add in the egg, mixing well.
  • Mix together the dry ingredients, including the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing well.
  • Crush the cereal you decide to use... You can put it in a plastic baggie and crush with a rolling pin. Once it's crushed, put it in a bowl.
  • Also, add the water to a separate bowl; and add the golden colored sugar crystals to another separate bowl.
  • Shape the dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into balls. 
  • First roll the dough balls in the water to moisten them up just a bit. Next roll them in the cereal, patting the crushed flakes into the surface of the cookie ball. And finally, roll in the golden sugar crystals, again patting the sugar crystals into the surface of the cookie ball.
  • Place each cookie ball on an ungreased cookie sheet. Then stick a cookie/cake pop stick into each one.
  • Bake the cookie pops at 400° for 12 to 14 minutes (oven times may vary). The cookies will flatten out somewhat but still stay in a fluffy, rounded shape.
  • Once the cookies have baked, allow them to cool.
  • Meanwhile, use a Golden Snitch wing template to cut wings out of the sugar paper. You'll want 2 wings for each cookie pop. Make sure to position your paper wing while cutting so you have one for each side of your cookie pop.
  • Once you have all your wings cut out, peel the backing off each one.
  • Then add slits for feathering in each wing (see the video if this seems confusing).
  • Once all of your wings are cut out, melt your candy melts according to package directions. 
  • Add just a couple drops of melted candy on both sides of your cookie, and press the wings in place. An easy way to do this is to use an old medicine dropper.
  • At this point, it's important to let the candy harden, so the wings will stay in place. This will take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes.
  • And that's it! Now you have Golden Snitch Snickerdoodle Cookie Pops, ready for your kids to munch on while they read their favorite book.


*I use Cinnamon Frosted Flakes for this recipe; you can use just about any type of cinnamon flavored cereal, for example, Cinnamon Life or Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
