I may or may not be eating my third brownie pop as I write this. And by that I mean I am totally eating my third brownie pop as I write this. I really should start making healthier foods so at least I can enjoy without guilt. But until then, mmmmm.
This recipe mirrors yesterday’s recipe for cookies n cream truffle pops with the difference of making today’s with brownies instead of oreos, duh. I guess most pops are similar in that sense; you have to prepare the actual filling (whether it be cookies, cake, brownies, etc) then repeat the coating process afterward.
- 1 Box of brownie mix (and whatever other ingredients the box calls for — eggs, oil, water)
- Wilton’s candy melts
- Lollipop sticks
- Styrofoam board/pop stand
1. Bake the brownies as directed, however, do not cook completely. You want them to be moist and gooey, so you’ll want to remove them from the oven a couple of minutes before suggested. My box recommended 28-32 minutes, and I took mine out at 27. Let the brownies cool until they are a temperature that you can handle working with.
2. Cut the brownies into approximately 1.5in x 1.5in squares. This equaled out to 30 pieces in my pan.
3. Take the edges and put them aside. We want the middle pieces for this recipe. Working with one piece at a time, fold the corners of the piece inward as best you can. You want the flaky top layer to go into the middle of the ball so the outer part is smooth. It is a little tricky but try your best. Rest them on a piece of waxed paper and repeat the process until all the middle pieces are done. I made a dozen balls. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
4. When you’re ready to coat, melt your chocolate for 30 second intervals, stirring each time. When your chocolate is ready, take out the tray of brownies and prepare your sticks. Dip the stick in your chocolate then into your brownie ball. Then dip the ball into the chocolate and coat completely. Use the back of a spoon to smooth out chocolate if necessary. Place on your styrofoam board/pop stand and repeat the process until all pops are done.
5. Don’t think I forgot about the brownie edges that we left all by their lonesome. You have two choices as to what you want to do with them. You can either do nothing special and eat as is (EXCELLENT decision), or you can continue to make more pops. This time, just insert a stick into the middle of the square and dip into your chocolate. There is no need to shape it into anything and you can make these as big or small as you’d like. It’s another cute way to show off your baking skills!
Once again you can add sprinkles/toppings or more melted chocolate as decoration.
Enjoy and gimme some oven lovin’.
