Leprechaun Poop Cookies

As I said in my last post, I was motivated by St. Patrick’s Day last weekend to create two fun new baked-good ideas! The first was the “End of the Rainbow” Cupcakes from Monday, and the second is today’s Leprechaun Poop Cookies…

I’ve always had the sense of humor of a six-year-old boy… I find poop funny and farts hilarious! So making a Leprechaun Poop cookie just kind of felt like the right thing to do. I was inspired by a picture a friend of mine showed me a while back of Unicorn Poop Cookies, but I wanted to put my own little St. Patrick’s Day twist on them! :)

First, assemble your ingredients.

You are going to need:

  • One recipe of chilled sugar cookie dough, divided in half and dyed yellow and green
  • Yellow sugar pearl sprinkles (I use these)
  • Edible gold sparkle gel (I use this type)
  • A food-safe, sanitized paint brush (I keep a few acrylic paint brushes clean just for baking. Do not use the same paint brush for food and non-food uses!)
  • Edible gold glitter stars (I use these)
  • Cookie sheet (not shown)
  • Parchment paper (not shown)

Begin by preheating your oven to 375°. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Portion a spoonful of each green and yellow cookie dough in to your hand.

Combine the colors together gently in your hand.

On a clean countertop, roll the ball of dough in to a long snake, approximately 6 inches long.

On your cookie sheet, wind the snake in to a poop… (There’s really no good way to say that. “Shape your poop.” Does that work better?) If your dough breaks/cracks, smooth it out as you go. Don’t worry about it too much tho cause cracks will give your poop some character.

Repeat with remaining cookie dough. Each poop will look a little different, which is great. They should all be unique!

Using the sugar pearls, add some sprinkles to your cookies.

Bake in preheated oven for 11-13 minutes, or until lightly browned on the bottom. Remove from the oven, and let cool on the cookie sheet for approximately 2 minutes.

Remove to a wire rack, and let cool for approximately 20 minutes.

When cookies are fully cooled, squeeze a small amount of sparkle gel on to each cookie.

Taking the cookie in your hand, spread the sparkle gel over the top of the cookie using a paint brush.

Repeat with remaining cookies, and sprinkle with a few gold stars.

Enjoy!! :D
