Brownie Pops

For the occasion of a bridal shower I co-hosted for my sweet friend Saige Wilhite, I decided to create a special sugary item instead of a cake or petit fours.  In early shower planning meetings, Saige shared with Libby Andress (co-hostess) and myself about her wedding colors and Fall theme.  After much consideration, I ran the pop idea by Saige and she loved it.  I proceeded to develop the recipe below and they sure were a hit.  If you are looking for something different to serve during the upcoming holidays, modify to the colors of the season or your special event.  Guarantee: you will be asked for the recipe and/or to make them again the next time. 

Chocolate Brownie Pops
1 family size brownie mix, prepare as directed
1 16 ounce can chocolate frosting
30 4 inch lollipop sticks (find at the craft store)
2 14 ounce bags dark chocolate melting candy, follow melting instructions (find at the craft store)
Colored sugars or sprinkles for decorating

Bake brownies as directed on package, let cool about 10 minutes, take a fork and break up in the pan.  When cool, mix crumbled brownie and frosting in a bowl with hand mixer until completely smooth.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.  Take a 1 ounce cookie scoop and portion out mixture, shape into a ball, place on lined (parchment, freezer or butcher paper) cookie sheet, (it will flatten out slightly).  Melt 10 disks of melting candy (per package directions) dip end of lollipop stick into melting candy and place into center of ball, continue until all of the mixture is used, placing back on lined cookie sheet.  Put in freezer for at least 30 minutes.  Melt remaining melting candy, dip pops one at a time, decorate, and freeze until 30 minutes before ready to serve.    Yield: about 30 pops
Variation: Add 1 ½ cups creamy peanut butter and only ½ can chocolate frosting to crumbled brownie and the proceed as above… use peanut butter melting candy instead of chocolate. Yield: about 34 pops
