Mini Sugar Cookie Ginger Pops

I was itching to make something simple and cute for Christmas, so pulled these mini, round sugar cookies from the freezer to make some "gingerbread" cookie pops!  
They were inspired by these Oreo pops from Laura's Bakery, that I originally found on Pinterest, but mine are a little different due to the cookie, the size, and the fact that all of the decorations are done with sprinkles, except for the smiles, which are royal icing.
The cookies are only 1.5-inches. I added the cookie sticks with royal icing to the backs of the cookies. I usually insert the sticks into the cookie (dough) before baking, but I retrieved these from the freezer, already baked.
The cookies are iced with tinted (chocolate brown gel) royal icing and a #2 tip.  While the icing was still wet, I used tweezers (used solely for this purpose) to add all of the sprinkles, with the exception of the smile/cheeks, which were added after the brown had dried for a bit.  The pink cheeks adhered to the smile easily while the royal icing was still wet.

That's all there is to it, and I think these ginger kids turned out pretty cute!

Have Fun!
