I made these for a joint family birthday party, what a hit! I had never attempted cake pops or brownie pops before, but they are worth the work. I know I am rather late on the trend, better late then never.
To adorn the top of the cake pops I used sprinkles for the kiddos, flur de sel, and pomegranates I must say, the flur de sel was the best bite. I used blackberry jam to hold the cake pops together rather then the classic frosting “glue”. To me, using that much frosting is a little overdone, and my hom made jam held it together just fine.
- 9×13 pan of brownies (mix or homemade)
- 3 tablespoons blackberry, or raspberry jam
- 2 cups chopped dark chocolate
- 2 tablespoons greated paraffin wax
- Flur de Sel
Make a 9×13 pan of brownies. Cool completely. Scoop out the whole pan of brownies into a mixing bowl, add the jam. Using your hands mix the brownies until the crumbs hold together. Roll 1 inch balls and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Freeze for an hour, or until they are hard.
Melt the chocolate and paraffin in a saucepan over low heat.
Pull out the frozen brownie balls [insert joke here], and insert cake pop sticks. Dip the pop into the milted chocolate. Stick the pop into a block of Styrofoam or a upside down box. Sprinkle the tops with salt, sprinkles, or anything else you may want to top them off with. Let them harden before serving.
