Equipment

  • Bowls
  • Knife
  • Cutting board
  • sheet pan
  • parchment paper
  • Styrofoam block with holes in it, optional
  • Lollipop sticks - You can use the longer ones or the shorter ones.

Ingredients

  • 1 standard batch of brownies (plus ingredient to make them) from scratch or from a mix
  • 2 tbsp chocolate frosting 30g (may need more or less)
  • 2 cups chocolate, candy melts, CandiQuik, etc. 280g (doesn't have to be exact)
  • Decorations, like little candies, edible markers, icing, etc.

Instructions

  • Prepare the brownies using your favorite brownie recipe. After they bake, allow them to cool completely.
  • Cut along the edges of the pan, about 1/4th of an inch away from the side, and then scoop out the brownies and place in a large bowl. Save the edges to eat later, they are a bit hard.
  • If your brownies are fudgey already and moist, you may not need to add frosting, otherwise add a few tablespoons of chocolate frosting to the bowl and then mix it into the brownies, using your clean hands or wear food prep gloves.
  • Use a tablespoon and scoop a bit of brownie, just a bit larger then a tablespoon, roll the brownie into a ball and then place it on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Don't make them too big, otherwise, they will be too heavy for the stick. Place the pan of brownie balls in the freezer and chill for 30 to 45 minutes.
  • Melt the chocolate in the microwave, using bursts of 30 seconds and stirring until melted, or use the double boiler method on the stovetop. If using candy melts, add a few teaspoons of shortening while melting, this will help to thin it out.
  • Dip the sticks into the chocolate and then stick them into the brownie balls about halfway. This acts like glue to hold the stick in place. Then place the brownie balls with the sticks, back on the pan, and put them in the fridge for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Pour the melted chocolate into narrow glasses. Remove the brownie pops from the fridge and then dip them entirely in the melted chocolate. Go straight down and then straight up, or if needed, go side to side at an angle to cover them fully.
    Tap the stick above the glass and allow the excess chocolate to drip off. Place the brownie pops in a piece of styrofoam, upright, or lay them on their side on the pan. If you have any decorations you want to stick to them, put them on now.
    Once dipped place them in the fridge for 15 to 20 minutes to set.
  • Once they have set you can decorate them however you like, using edible markers, gel, icing, fondant, etc. Have fun with the designs! Enjoy!

Notes

Note: The nutritional facts will vary greatly depending on the chocolate and how big you make them. This is a good estimate though.
