brownie pops

20121021-IMG_0395

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.

I used this brownie mix (I know a MIX?!!?!), but hey, convenience goes a long way. Or you could use this brownie recipe.

  • 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
  • Sprinkles
  • Pomegranates

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.

  1. Hey, nice blog.
    Just a quiet tip (feel free not to approve the comment). You’ve used the word “then” when you mean “than” in a couple of posts… “then” is always about time – “than” is used mostly when comparing/ contrasting.

    cheers,
