I decided that it was time for me to jump on the cake pop bandwagon. Cake pops are all the rage now and if Starbucks is getting $2.50 a piece for these little gems, they must me something wonderful, right? I did some research to learn how to make these lollipop shaped snacks and my brother even volunteered to buy a cake pop and eat it while we skyped so I could see what was inside.
I ended up using a collaboration of recipes that I found on the internet to come up with a process for making my brownie pops. I will walk you through the steps that I took to make them but keep in mind that it was my first attempt.
I pulled the tray of brownie balls out of the freezer and one at a time, I inserted a stick and then dipped it into the melted chocolate.
I bought a small block of Styrofoam to hold my brownie pops and I inserted each one into the block once it had been dipped.
I also tried to sprinkle some peppermint crunch on top but I had a hard time getting it to stick. You can see from my picture that I only tried it once.
The brownie pops were really fun to make and they were really good. The chocolaty brownie centers are sure to be a big hit with the kids at the birthday celebration.
