The Ingredients for Chocolate-Dipped Cookies on a Stick! 
Step 1: Gather your Ingredients & Materials:

1.468 g/16.5 oz homemade cookie dough or store bought, enough for 2 sheets full.  (I used premade Pillsbury Chocolate Chip cookie dough, but you can use your favourite brand and/or flavour.) 

2.300 g/10.5 oz of milk chocolate (I used a plain chocolate bar).
3.100g/3.5 oz of white chocolate (I used a plain white chocolate bar).

4.Two (2) cookie sheets.
5.Twelve-twenty popsicle sticks (I used rainbow-coloured sticks, but use regular ones if there are dye contamination concerns).

6.Two sauce pots (one big one, one small one that can fit inside) or double boiler with no drain holes.
7.Fancy ribbons of your favourite colour to decorate the sticks (not shown).
8.Wax paper (optional).

Only 6 Cookie Dough Balls Per Sheet
Step 2: The Dough Meets the Stick
1.Make medium-to-large sized balls of cookie dough, maximum 6 to a regular-sized cookie sheet.

Insert Popsicle Stick Into the Cookie Dough,
Push Into the Center
2.Take a popsicle stick and insert it in the middle of your dough ball.  Push it in only half way.

Arrange Cookie Dough Balls with Sticks on the Sheet
Position so they don't "melt" into each other
3.Repeat the process for each cookie dough ball, and arrange the cookie dough balls with inserted stick on the cookie sheet so that the cookies don't "melt" into each other, or other sticks.  Do NOT press the popsicle stick down.

Step 3: Bake the Cookies on a Stick!
1.Bake the chocolate chip cookies on a stick at 350° F/180° C for 9-12 minutes (I baked mine for about 12 minutes).  Be sure to check regularly, so they don't burn and spoil the recipe.  
2.Remove cookies on a stick from the oven once done, and allow to cool (for about 1 hour or until fully cooled).
Melt the Glorious Milk Chocolate!
Step 4: Melt the Milk Chocolate!
1.Fill a large sauce pot (or double boiler with no drain holes) with water and bring to a boil.
2.When water is boiling, insert second smaller pot inside large on (like a double boiler).  Be sure that water will not boil into smaller pot.  Reduce temperature to medium.
2.Break the milk chocolate into squares and drop into small, empty sauce pot.
3.Stir chocolate until all the pieces have melted, and chocolate sauce is smooth.
"Dip" the Cookies with Chocolate Sauce
Step 5: "Dip" the Cookie on a Stick into Melted Milk Chocolate!
To avoid the chance of cookies snapping off the popsicle stick, follow these instructions and avoid disappointment.
1.Spoon melted milk chocolate over the top of the chocolate chip cookie on a stick.  You may choose to coat both sides of the cookie, one side, etc...but this recipe yields enough chocolate to dip the cookies 1/3-1/2 with chocolate, on both sides.
2.Allow excess chocolate to drip back into the pan, and smooth the chocolate sauce with the spoon so it's evenly coated.
3.Put directly onto the cookie sheet, or lay on sheets of wax paper for best results.
Lick the Pot of Chocolate, Set Cookies to Cool!

Step 6: Allow Chocolate to Harden in Fridge
Now is the time to take a short break and allow the milk chocolate to harden in the fridge, for about 30-60 minutes.  If you do not wish to add white chocolate to the recipe, go straight to step 8.  Allow the jubilant child of the house to lick clean the pot! 
Melt the White Chocolate, Don't Overheat!

Step 7: Melt the White Chocolate & Drizzle!

Important: white chocolate does not have the same constitution as milk chocolate, and if you over melt it, it will start to bunch up.  Should that happen, add a bit of milk to the mixture, and your recipe will work great!

1.Fill a large sauce pot (or double boiler with no drain holes) with water and bring to a boil.
2.When water is boiling, insert second smaller pot inside large on (like a double boiler).  Be sure that water will not boil into smaller pot.  Reduce temperature to medium.
2.Break the white chocolate into squares and drop into small, empty sauce pot.
3.Stir chocolate until all the pieces have melted, and chocolate sauce is smooth.  Do not overheat, or mixture will become too firm!  (Simple add a bit of milk, should this happen.)
4.Remove the chilled cookies on a stick from the fridge.  Take a spoon and drizzle white chocolate carefully over the milk chocolate portion.  If chocolate is too firm and will not drizzle, add some milk to mixture and reheat.
5.Once again refrigerate for 15-30 minutes, or until white chocolate has hardened.
These Chocolate-Dipped Cookies on a Stick are Almost Ready!

Step 8: Decorate the Popsicle Sticks & Enjoy!
Once white chocolate has hardened, decorate popsicle sticks with small ribbons in a colour of your choice.  If you wish to use as party favours or give as gifts, you can wrap the cookies in cello.

So Fun & Easy to Make (and Eat)!
