Valentine’s Day Treat: Brownie Pops

Whether you are happily single or madly in love, that time of year is coming when everyone is thinking about sweet treats. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, here is an easy and unique dessert for anyone to enjoy. Brownie pops are a spin off the popular cake pops, which use cake mix instead of brownie mix.

  This rich treat is every chocolate lovers dream and serves as a quick, ready to go snack.

Ingredients
Brownie Mix (I used the Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Family Size Mix)
Ingredients needed for whatever brownie mix is used
1 Tub of Chocolate Frosting
1-2 Bags of Pink Chocolate Coating Candy Melts
Assorted sprinkles
Lollipop Sticks

Directions
1) Follow instructions on Brownie mix and cook in 8×8 pan
2) Once the brownies are cooled, cut out of pan, and put into large mixing bowl (Cut off crunchy edges and do not add to bowl)
3) Add 1/2 to 2/3 of the frosting to the mixing bowl
4) Mix brownie and frosting together until smooth
5) Roll mixture into golf ball size and place on wax paper covered cookie sheet
6) Repeat until there is no more brownie mixture
7) Place brownie balls in fridge for two hours, or until firm
8) Melt chocolate coating in microwave for one minute, on half power. Repeat, stirring every 30 seconds, until chocolate is completely melted
9) Place sticks into brownie balls, making sure the stick is not all the way through
10) Dip brownie balls in coating, adding sprinkles immediately after
11) Place brownie ball in cup, with the brownie ball sticking out of the top of the cup
12) Repeat steps ten and eleven until all brownie balls are coated

13) To have coating harden faster, put the cups with the brownie balls in the fridge until hard
14) Store in sealed container and enjoy!

  We hope you enjoy this delicious Valentine’s Day snack. This recipe is easily suitable for other occasions, by changing the color of the coating and the sprinkles. For Valentines Day we used pink coating with white, gold, and silver sprinkles, but these can be easily changed for the event.

  Happy Valentines Day and Happy cooking!
