Birthday Brownie Pops

We think pop cakes are simply adorable, so why not give pop brownies a try at your next party? This recipe uses a boxed brownie mix making it super easy and fun!

Ingredients:

  • 1 box (1 lb 2.4 oz) of your favorite brownie mix (we love this low-fat version from Trader Joes)
  • Water, vegetable oil (or direct substitute with apple sauce) and egg called for on brownie mix box
  • 16 craft sticks (flat wooden sticks with round ends)
  • 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips (4 oz)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons shortening
  • Sprinkles

Directions:

  1. Heat the oven to 350°F. (325°F for dark or nonstick pan).
  2. Line 8-inch or 9-inch square pan with foil so foil extends about 2 inches over sides of pan. Spray foil with cooking spray. Make the brownies as directed on box. If you have a cake pop pan, make these brownies in that pan!
  3. Place the brownies in freezer for 30 minutes after allowing them to cool for an hour.
  4. Remove brownies from pan by lifting foil and peel the foil from sides of brownies. Cut the brownies into 16 bars, 4 rows by 4 rows.
  5. Gently insert craft stick into end of each bar, peeling foil from bars. Place on cookie sheet and freeze the bars for an additional 30 minutes.
  6. In a small microwavable bowl, microwave the chocolate chips and shortening uncovered on high for about 1 minute; stir until smooth. If the chocolate still isn’t completely melted, simply heat in 5 second increments as needed.
  7. Dip top 1/3 to 1/2 of each brownie into chocolate; sprinkle with candy sprinkles (or completely dip your brownie pops). Then lay them flat on waxed paper or foil to dry.
