Melt 1-1 1/2 cups candy melts either in the Wilton melting pot, or in a microwave safe bowl stirring in 30 second intervals until almost melted. A few lumps are ok, just stir and they will dissolve.
Add a teaspoon of shortening to the melted candy to smooth it out. It will probably be very thick before this step.
Twist to open the cookies apart, and lay them flat.
Dip the lollipop stick about 1/2 inch into the melted candy melts. Then press it into the center of the cookie., and add the top of the cookie on top of the stick and give it a light press.
Next, set them on tray or plate, and set them into the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes. This way the cookie won't slide down the stick from the hot candy melts.
