Brownie Cake Pops Made Easy!


Ingredients:

1 package of your favorite brownie mix
1-16 oz container chocolate fudge frosting
20-6 inch Wilton cookie sticks
1 pkg candy melts
Nonpareils, jimmies, sprinkles and/or decorator candies

Directions:

Cook brownie per package directions and then cool completely.

Crumble brownie as best you can so that there are no big clumps at all.

Add 1/2 of the container of frosting to the brownie crumbles. Mix thoroughly. This will help it stick much easier to form a ball.

Form 20 balls (about 1 1/2-2" in size) with the brownie mixture and freeze at least 4 hours (preferably overnight).

Insert lollipop sticks into each ball. place back into freezer. 

Melt the candy melts in a double boiler and dip each ball into melted chocolate tapping out any excess and turning continually for several minutes.  Do not set out all of the brownie pops at once...just take out one at a time in order for them to stay cold. This will help the chocolate to set quicker. 

Before the chocolate completely sets, sprinkle with nonpareils and/or jimmies and/or decorator candies.

Allow to cool and harden. Stand up in a cup that has been placed in the refrigerator.

If giving as a gift, place in a small clear candy bag and tie off with matching ribbon.
