14 per serving
- 1 8 by 8 pan of pre-made brownies
- 1 tub of milk chocolate frosting
- Wilton candy melts, in colors of your choice
- sucker sticks, (from a craft store)
- Decorating candies, sugar sprinkles, nonperils, sugar pearls, fondant, or candy spray
In a large bowl, crumble the pan of brownies until the mixture is super fine. If there are large crumbles, the pops will not look smooth. Add in about of the frosting and mix well. If the mixture is too dry, keep adding frosting until you have a doughy consistency. Shape the mixture into 1 inch balls and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Place the balls into the refrigerator for one hour to retain its shape. Do not place in the freezer because the balls will crack. In a medium saucepan, melt the candy melts and dip one small side of the sucker stick into the chocolate. Taking only a couple balls out of the fridge at a time, place the stick into the cake ball and dip into the chocolate. Twirl the stick slowly to get even coverage. Once the ball is covered, sprinkle on your decorations while still wet. Stand cake pops up in Styrofoam to dry. You can either display them or wrap them into little plastic bags and tied with ribbon to give as gifts. Enjoy!
