Allow them to heat thoroughly, then remove them from heat and let sit 1 minute. Once they have rested, add the sticks and coat the pops in more crushed gingersnaps. Take a bite and enjoy!

This is a hip, and trendy take on an old southern classic, but don’t be afraid to mix it up a little and make it your own.
