Easy Brownie Pops

In my Valentine's Day post I mentioned that I made brownie pops for my class' party. I was pressed for time as we had parent teacher conferences the night before until 8, but I knew I still wanted to make something cute.

A lot of the recipes I looked up were 3 hours because of freeze time. I did not have that kind of time at all. That's where these, you could've fooled me, easy and simple brownie pops come in.

To make 20 small pops first bake your favorite brownie mix in a 9x13 pan according to the directions on the package. After it's finished crumble all of the brownie into a large mixing bowl. Let the brownie cool while you melt your chocolate.

I melted white chocolate chips in 30 sec intervals on 50% power, stirring in between.

After your chocolate is melted form the brownie balls with your hands and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet. Next poke a whole with your stick, I used fun paper straws, drop a dot of melted chocolate in and place the stick back into the hole. This will help hold the stick in place as the chocolate hardens.

Once the sticks settle into the melted chocolate for a couple minutes gently pick them up and turn them with one hand while drizzling melted chocolate over the pop with a spoon in your other hand. This method is so much easier and quicker than dipping and I quite like the unique look! Sprinkle your favorite decoration on top and set aside to cool.

What really made this process go fast for me was going with the swirled look rather than dipping. Because I didn't have time to wait, I was working with warm brownies and large paper straws which were falling apart when I tried to dip. Definitely go for the swirl to save on time.

These are simple, pretty, and perfect for any occasion. You'll have everyone wanting, just one more. Let me know how yours turn out if you decide to give them a try!
