Brownie Pops (Like Cake Pops but Brownie-er)

If you love brownies, you are going to love these brownie pops. If you think cake pops are fun but come out a little mushy, you will love these brownie pops! 

You'll need just a few things Brownies White candy melts Lollipop sticks
Something to sprinkle on at the end...colored sugar, rainbow sprinkles, crushed candy, etc

I made this particular batch for Craftaholics Anonymous right before the 4th of July, so I used red and blue sugar.

Bake up a pan of brownies and let cool.  Trim the edges (and go ahead and eat them--they're good, right!)  Cut the rest of the pan into 20 pieces.  Form each piece into a ball...smoosh is a good word to use here.  You don't need to even add any frosting or anything.  The brownies will hold together quite nicely, even if they're not perfectly round.

Melt candy, put a little on the end of a lollipop stick and press into a brownie ball.  Let the candy set and then cover the whole pop in the melted white candy. Twirl the lollipop for about a minute to prevent drips then dip the top into red or blue sugar.  Set in a foam block, cake pop stand or just lay on a piece of wax paper while they finish setting.

For presentation, lay out on a tray or pack into a painted jar that's been dressed up with washi tape.  

Past versions I've made are Mint brownie pops (with Andes mints) or Candy Cane brownie pops.  Both delicious!  Even if the pictures aren't awesome, because my photo skills have at least gotten a bit better since then :)

So go give 'em a try. I'd love to hear if you're a brownie pop fan!

  1. Very festive looking! I never thought about how easy it probably is to make brownie bites into balls.
