I've been seeing cake pops all over the place recently so I really wanted to try to make some. I was short on time and really didn't want to have to wait for the cake balls to cool down so I decided to make them with brownies instead.
1 box Brownie Mix + Ingredients as required on box
Approx 24 lollipop sticks (I Purchased at Michaels)
Melting Chocolate (various flavors and colors)
I slacked off and used a box brownie mix and then let them cool down in the pan for about 5 minutes. I then broke the brownies into big chunks and put them in the fridge to cool down complelty. Once the brownies were fully cooled (about another 10 -15 minutes), I grabbed pieces of brownies and rolled them into 1 inch balls.
I then stuck a lollipop stick into the center of each of the brownie balls. I then put them in the fridge to harden over night. I'm not sure if this step was needed but I did it anyways.
The next day I took out each of the Brownie pops and stuck them into the styrofoam board, so they would have a place to dry once I covered them in chocolate.
Once they had their base coating I drizzled different colored chocolate on top of each pop to make them look nice and fancy.
To finish them off, I found some plastic around the house and cut it into 6 inch squares. I wrapped each brownie with the plastic and tied them off with a silver twist tie.
