brownie pops

Today brings another tutorial from my dear friend, Andrea. These brownie pops are super adorable.  We all fell in love with cake pops quite a while back, but I love all the variations you can make.  I love brownies just as much as I love cake, and sometimes it's so fun to eat it in little bite size morsels.  And besides being fun, let's just face it, it helps me keep some portion control.

So here's how to make these little treats...
They are extremely easy to do. You can either make some thick brownies and cut them with a cookie cutter and dip in chocolate or use this cute Wilton pan to make this cute shape.If you want to expend more effort you can also roll your brownies into actual balls and cover them completely in chocolate. You can find this pan at Michaels and with the 40% off coupon it wasn't bad at all. I can't remember exactly how much because it was a long time ago that I bought it, but probably around 8 dollars or something like that.

Make sure you grease your pan well. Mine stuck a bit so they weren't perfect, but you get the idea.

Melt your chocolate. I had some Wilton brand orange chocolate. When you use Wilton you need to add some shortening to it to thin it out and make it work for dipping.

Dip the stick in chocolate and insert it in the brownie. Let it sit for a couple minutes for the chocolate to set up (you can put it in the fridge or freezer to speed up the process) and then dip your brownie pop in the chocolate.

My boys love sanding sugar or any sprinkles so I added some orange sanding sugar.

I bought the pan last year to make a similar pop. I couldnt get the brownie to stay on the stick. It was too heavy. What's the secret??

Yum!! I'm glad you posted the little tip about using shortening. No wonder I could never get my chocolate the right consistency. Thanks!
