Valentine's Day Brownie Pops
Recipe type: Dessert
Makes: 4 dozen pops (easily doubles)
Fudgy delicious brownie pops made from scratch! These heart-shaped treats are perfect for Valentine’s Day!
  • ½ pan of The Ultimate Fudgy Brownies, cooled
  • 4-dozen 6-inch lollipop sticks
  • 600g semi-sweet chocolate, roughly chopped or in disks
  • ½ - 1 cup colored sprinkles
  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and set aside
  2. Cut sharp edges and corners off of brownies; break remaining brownie into pieces and place in a large bowl; mush together into a fudgy consistency
  3. Use a small cookie dough scoop or large spoon to scoop balls (about 1 tablespoon each) of dough onto wax paper
  4. Use your hands to roll the scoops into balls
  5. Cover with another sheet of wax paper and place in freezer for at least two hours
  6. Prepare another baking sheet with wax paper for finished pops, alternatively, have a large piece of styrofoam available for drying brownie pops
  7. Once balls are frozen, you can make the pops
  8. Put chocolate in a heat-safe bowl and place in over a pot of simmering water; stir chocolate constantly until melted (you can also melt in the microwave)
  9. Remove balls from freezer; dip the top of each lollipop stick about ¼ of an inch into the melted chocolate and immediately press into brownie ball two thirds of the way through
  10. (Optional) To make hearts: Pinch the bottom of each ball together with your fingers to form a rounded upside down triangle. Then, press your thumb into the top of the pop to create a dip for the top of the heart. Smooth out any imperfections by carefully using your fingers to mold the shape. Chill pops in freezer for an additional 15- 30 minutes or until firm again
  11. Once complete, dip each pop, one at a time, into melted chocolate; lightly tap off excess chocolate and place cake pop on wax paper or stick into styrofoam; decorate with sprinkles immediately before chocolate hardens
  12. Repeat until all pops are dipped and decorated
  13. Allow to cool and for chocolate to harden before serving
Brownie can be made one day before making pops; just make sure it is wrapped tightly with seran or tin foil (can also freeze well-wrapped up to one month)
Cake pops can be made up to one week in advance of serving
