Snowman Brownie Pops… I’m Melting in Cuteness!

Last week I posted some fabulous snowman treats from various food bloggers. Those snowmen inspired the brownie pops that I made. Ever since our Halloween party, when I made eyeball brownie bites, neighbors have been requesting brownie pops. What I love about pops – cheesecake pops, cake pops, oreo pops, or brownie pops is that they can be decorated for any occasion – formal or informal events. They also are just enough to satisy a serious sweet tooth, without the danger of consuming too many calories. That is, if you can stop at just one.

These were simple to make. A few weeks ago, I had frozen some of the brownies that were rolled into balls  (without the chocolate coating) when I made my a batch of brownie pops. As long as they are placed in an airtight container, they still taste fresh.

 (Everything except the Brownie’s should be available at Michael’s, or your local craft store.)

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Instead of adding one rolled brownie ball onto the lollipop stick, add two, and then shape the body of your snowman before dipping. You want to make sure the bottom brownie is flattened a little so that the finished  snowman stands up well. I ended up with one wobbly one. At this stage, you may want to refreeze them until they firm up again. If you try to dip pops that aren’t firm, you end up with crumbs in your melted chocolate bowl, which then transfers to the balls and they won’t look very pretty.

                                                                                                                    Once they’re pretty solid, they’re ready to dip. It works best to use a smaller, but taller bowl for the melted chocolate with these double brownie pops. Once dipped, gently shake off excess and place standing up on waxed paper to dry.

                                                                                                                                                     After they have dried, use the black food writer to add the details. Take an orange brownie crunch topping, dip the flat part in a little bit of melted chocolate and adhere to snowman. I thought they looked good at this stage, and of course I had to taste-test. They tasted great! I thought they looked even better all wrapped up and ready to share. The lollipop wrappers were the perfect size for these treats. I think I have my snowman fix now, and will soon be moving onto Valentine’s Day!

    Just adorable. I did the same kind of thing last winter using cake pops. They were a huge hit too.

    Thanks!

    Hi! These are absolutely adorable. I have one quesiton though, about how long do you think you can make them ahead of time for an event? I have to make the cake for my daughter the night before, and decorate the location of her party as well that morning. So, what is the earliest I could make them if the party is on Saturday?

    Thanks so much! They are so adorable!

    Hi Sofia,

    I think you’d be okay making them a week ahead of time and sealing them in an airtight container, definitely a few days beforehand. I’ve had good luck making these ahead of the event. Good luck with your daughter’s party!

    Did you have any trouble with the edible markers? I just made these with cake pops, and I couldn’t get the marker to write on the snowman :( I used Wilton candy melts and the Wilton markers you linked to. I ended up using blue and green sprinkles for the eyes, but I think yours are much cuter!
