9x13 pan of brownies, cooled
1/2 cup frosting, if necessary
heart shaped cookie cutter
chocolate bark or candy melts
craft or popsicle sticks
- Once prepared pan of brownies has cooled, crumble into a large bowl using hands. If using cake-like brownies, add the frosting of your choice. If using fudgy brownies no frosting is necessary. Shape crumbled brownies into the heart shaped cookie cutter and place on a parchment lined baking sheet, set aside.
- Melt a small amount of chocolate bark or candy melts according to package directions. Dip the tips of the craft sticks into the melted chocolate, then gently insert one stick into each heart shaped brownie. Place the baking sheet with the brownies and sticks into the freezer for a few minutes to harden. Meanwhile prepare a large amount of chocolate bark or candy melts in a narrow bowl or cup (I used my glass measuring cup). Dip brownie pops into melted chocolate and gently tap on the side to remove excess chocolate. Place pops standing upright onto styrofoam blocks and let dry completely. If using sprinkles, decorate while chocolate is still wet. If you want to write on the pops pour melted chocolate into a piping bag fitted with a small round tip (I used Wilton #2).
