Mint Brownie Pops



I've wanted to try this ever since I made regular brownie "cake pops" for Emily to take to her class on her birthday. 


Same concept I used before, only this time instead of dipping them in chocolate candy melts, I used Andes mints!  It's pretty similar to making regular cake pops, only I don't mix any frosting into the brownies.  I just make sure I don't over bake them, and then after they're mostly cool I cover them with plastic wrap for a couple of hours.  This way they stay pretty sticky.  


Scoop up some brownie and roll it into a small ball.  Fill a cookie sheet with them, and dip the end of a lollipop stick into a bit of melted chocolate and poke it down into the brownie. 

 When the chocolate has set, holding the sticks in place, melt a bowlful of Andes mints.   I used my 1 cup Pyrex and it worked perfectly.  I microwaved at half power at 30 second intervals, stirring till melted and smooth.  
Then dip the brownies in the melted chocolate.

Then I wrapped up each one when they were all dry/cool--whatever you call it when the chocolate isn't melty anymore.
