Chocolate Coated Brownies on a Stick
These are funnest treats!
We found them on a calandar. It took some experimenting to figure out how to make them. The key was sticking them in the freezer for a while before coating them. Frozen, you can handle them without them coming apart.
After freezing, we dipped them in softened frosting . . . and had square brownie pops.
We’ve made both brownie and blondie pops. In the accompanying image, is a raspberry blondie that is cut open.
How to Make Square Brownie Pops
These are delightful and simple. They don’t take any special equipment. This is all there is to it:
- Make a batch of brownies. Let them cool.
- Cut them into desired sizes and shapes.
- Stick a popsicle stick in each and put them in the freezer.
- Get a tub of frosting. We used fudge.
- Melt the frosting and dip each brownie in the frosting. Let them drip for a moment and then poke the stick handle into Styrofoam to keep the treat vertical while it dries. For a thinner coating, use a warmer frosting. A cooler frosting will give you a thicker coating.
- Once the frosting is set, drizzle the pops with multiple colors of icing made with powdered sugar. You can also decorate them with sprinkles or other decorations.
We stored them on a tray on parchment paper in the refrigerator. They tended to stick a bit to the parchment paper. Rather than pulling on the sticks, we used a thin-bladed spatula to separate them from the paper.
We used a biscuit cutter to cut round brownies. Larger circles worked better than smaller ones. Denser brownies work better than more cake-like ones.
I’m sure you’re more creative than I. Make Easter egg shapes. Cut a round one, stick a candy in the top for a stem, and make Jack-O-Lantern treats. Make snow men or Christmas trees for the holidays.
Since we were using blondies, we colored-coded them with the drizzle to tell the raspberry ones from the peanut butter ones.
