Wedding Brownie Pop Bliss

We all know that the cake & brownie pop is one of the hottest raves to hit party and wedding dessert tables this decade.  I had the honor of making brownie pops for a wonderful friends wedding this weekend.  I have come up with one of the easiest ways to cut time & cost when making these delishes treats.

I use the following items for this task: 4 boxes of the big pack fudge brownies by Little Debbie's, 3 bags of white chocolate, 1 bag of navy blue chocolate, 100 white candy sticks and navy blue ribbon for bows. 

Gather together what you will need and start working.  I like to unwrap all the brownies first.  Cut in half and roll into little balls.  Once shaped place a candy stick in the center.  Before dipping in chocolate, I place the pops on a cookie sheet lying down and in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes.  It makes it a lot easier to dip in chocolate and it helps to stay on the stick better. 


Out of the freezer and into the heated up white chocolate they go.  I bought a wonderful chocolate melting pot a few years back.  I suggest you purchase one if you work with chocolate.  Very carefully dip one at a time into the melted chocolate and swirl around to cover.  Pull up out of the chocolate and move the pop in a circle motion to help remove the extra chocolate.  Then place on wax paper to dry completely before decorating or doing a second coat if needed. 

 Please note not every brownie pop will come out pretty or one will even break.  But if you take your time they will come out great. 

For striping these babies I melted navy blue chocolate that I picked up from Standlee's on third in Chula Vista.  I used a pipping bag to make the lines.  You can also use specialty clear bottles that can be purchased at a candy or cake supply place for melted chocolate.  Leaving you with this final product. 
Please note that I made 96 brownie pops with this recipe.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial..If you did please leave a comment or question if you have one...I will be happy to answer. 

 Up next is my 40th birthday party that I will be blogging ideas on the black & white affair that is coming up real soon.  Keep a look out to see what I have to share on invites, decor, food, dessert and much more. 

Until then have fun making these babies they are a joy to eat.
