Valentine Brownie Pops

I love making baked goods for Valentine's Day, everything is so fun and super cute! I don't know when chocolate and this holiday started their relationship, but I am glad they did!


Yes, I am one of those lovey-dovey people at Valentine's Day. Since I warned you, no getting angry at me! 

Now, to me nothing says love like a big box of chocolates. (insert subtle hint to hubbie here) OR a bunch of these super cute brownie heart pops!


Although, I don't know if these pops are going to make it to Valentine's Day...much less past this three-day weekend! Yep that's right, Houston had a "snow" day! With the threat of 1-3 inches of snow and below freezing temperatures, the Space Center closed. Woohoo!



Valentine Brownie Pops

9x13 pan of brownies, cooled
1/2 cup frosting, if necessary
heart shaped cookie cutter
chocolate bark or candy melts
decorative sprinkles
craft or popsicle sticks
styrofoam blocks

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). 

If you are looking to decorate a bouquet of these babies, check out the cake pop tag templates that Bakerella has been working on, they are super cute! OR If you are out of popsicle sticks, check out Confessions of a Cookbook Queen she made these adorable candy melt stands for her brownie hearts!


Happy Baking!
