Step one: Make the Brownies.
Moist, fudgy brownies work best. Make the brownies according to the recipe or package directions. Bake them on parchment paper so you can remove them from the pan completely.
Let them cool to where they are easy to handle. With a damp knife, cut off the crusts and cut them into small bars.
Step two: Mold the brownies into balls.
If your brownies are moist and fudgy, they will cling together. Grease your hands to keep them from getting too sticky.
Roll the top crust of each brownie into the center of your ball. The dry edges are then turned into the center of your round brownie.
Step three: Insert craft sticks into each ball.
Push the sticks almost all the way through the brownie balls so that you don’t lose a brownie ball while dipping. Let them cool completely before you start dipping them in chocolate.
Step four: Dip the brownies in melted chocolate wafers.
Melt the chocolate wafers in the microwave in 15-second intervals. Stir after each interval until the chocolate is smooth. Use just enough heat to melt the chocolate. If you cook the chocolate, it will not coat and set properly.
Dip the brownie pops into the melted dark chocolate completely covering each brownie. Mugs work very well for these. They are a perfect size and the thick mug holds the heat so that the chocolate stays warm and liquid.
If you are going to double-dip your brownie pops, let them cool now.
Step five: Decorate your brownie pops.
To double-dip, melt the white chocolate and repeat the process with white chocolate wafers.
Stage your sprinkles in standard paper muffin liners, the kind you make cupcakes with. Roll them in the jimmies while the white chocolate is still melted.
Let them cool and tie a ribbon on each stick.
If you are not going to be serving them right away, after the chocolate has set, wrap each one in plastic wrap and then tie them with ribbons.
What are chocolate wafers?
Wafers are made for candy. They are smoother, have a finer grind, and usually have more cocoa butter. They feel better in your mouth and taste better.
Chocolate intended for baking is usually not as fine of a grind. Chocolate chips are surrounded by flour, which is grainy by nature.
Always use wafers for coating.
