What could possible be better than a chewy, fudgey, chocolatey brownie you ask?
One covered in chocolate.
Garnished with sprinkles.
And placed on a stick for easy eating, that’s what.
These are just about as easy as those chocolate covered oreos, I posted on Friday. These are perfect if you want to make something pretty simple yet delicious and festive! You could easily wrap these up with a little cellophane and tie a ribbon and call it a day and give them to teachers, neighbors, friends, or yourself!
Christmas Chocolate Dipped Brownie Pops
one batch of baked brownies, I used my favorite brownie recipe but if you don’t feel like making them from scratch feel free to use a box mix or already-made store bought brownies
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate (white chocolate, dark chocolate, or milk chocolate would be great too)
1 Tablespoon butter or margarine
sprinkles and additional desired toppings (like crumbled up cookies, a drizzle of a different type of chocolate, M&M’s, etc.)
- Bake and prepare brownies as recipe directs. Let cool and cut into individual bars, whatever size you want.
- When brownies are completely cut and cooled, melt the chocolate and butter (or margarine) together in a double boiler or microwave, until smooth. I prefer to use a double boiler when I’m dipping things because once the chocolate is completely melted, I can keep it over the lowest heat and it stays smooth and melted, perfect for dipping.
- First dip popsicle stick in melted chocolate, then stick popsicle stick in the bottom of brownie, about halfway in. Place brownie on stick on wire rack, with parchment paper or silpat-lined rimmed baking sheet underneath. Repeat with all brownie pieces. Place in fridge for at least 30 minutes, or until chocolate is hardened
- Once chocolate is hardened on sticks, take brownies out of fridge and dip whole brownie in melted chocolate. Right after each brownie is dipped in chocolate, apply toppings (sprinkles, cookie crumbs, etc.) Once all brownies have been completely dipped and decorated, place in fridge until chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.
- Once chocolate is set, remove brownie pops from wire racks and place in tupperware container. I store mine in the fridge, but they would be fine sitting at room temperature as long as your house and environment aren’t too warm. Enjoy!
