Brownie pops

I saw these pops on a blog a while ago and they looked so fun and cute so I had to make them. You don't have to use brownie you could do whatever you like. Chocolate biscuit cake ones would be good, or just thought of doing cheesecake balls and rolling them in biscuit, that would be amazing! Apparently people do cake ones but I read a recipe where it says you make the cake and then crumble it and squish it back together which absolutely doesn't work. You just need to have something that will go hard in the fridge or freezer so the sticks stay on. They would be amazing for a kids party, a sweet canapé or just a funny different way of serving pudding. I have had a plumber here fixing some leak all day who must of thought I was mad covered in icing and sprinkles all over the place, but he was very impressed with them and said they were delicious. He still hasn't fixed the leak though, maybe hanging around in hope of another one.

makes about 35 pops

You need

Icing sugar
Food colouring

Make one batch of my hummingbird brownie recipe. When cooked and cooled, cut the edges off and put them aside. Put the rest into a bowl and mush up. I used the tbsp part of a measuring spoon to make sure they were all roughly the same size. Squish the mix into a rough ball and then put it in the bottom of a wine glass and swish around in circles to form a nice round ball.

When they are all done, place them on a tray lined with baking paper or cling and stick them in the freezer for about 30 minutes. This will make them go hard so that the sticks stay on while you ice them.

For the icing, just follow the pack instructions and use whatever food colouring and sprinkles you like. Once I iced them I put the sticks in a tall glass with some paper underneath as the icing drips all over the place and makes a mess. Leave them for an hour of so to set somewhere cool and pop away!
