Easy and Fudgy Brownie Cake Pops
As many of you know, I’m a sucker for anything chocolate. Some of my favorite treats are my too much chocolate cake and my oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! With Valentine’s Day coming, it’s the perfect time to introduce these easy and fudge brownie cake pops! They are never dry and come out perfect every time.Jump to Recipe
These fudgy brownie cake pops are sure to be love at first bite. They are full of ooey-gooey chocolatey goodness. Instead of scouring the stores for the perfect gift, make this impressive treat with little effort. Did I mention how easy these are to make? They are a just special brownie mix and water!
With a fudgy brownie mix, your brownie cake pops will turn out fudgy and truffle-like every time. You won’t even want to share this special Valentine’s day treat with your special someone. But there will be enough for both of you—one mix makes 30-35 brownie pops.
Using a Brownie Mix for Your Brownie Pops
There are a lot of options with brownie mixes, but they are not going to all give you the same results. You want your brownie cake pops to come out fudgy and chocolatey.
My recommendation for the fudgiest brownie pops is to try this Seriously Fudgy Brownie mix. You can order it online from The Prepared Pantry and have it shipped to your front door. This is a just add water mix and it’s absolutely foolproof. No need to add oil or eggs for this brownie mix.
With how chocolatey and fudgy my brownie pops came out, other brownie mixes just won’t compare. If you thought the brownie mix was good as basic brownies, it makes an even better brownie pop. The crumb is perfectly gooey and moist, so you can roll it right into a ball that will hold without any excessive sweetness from added frosting.
Ingredients for Brownie Cake Pops
- 1 Seriously Fudgy Brownie Mix: this is a mix you can buy online from the Prepared Pantry. It’s a just add water mix and is by far the best I’ve tried.
- 2/3 cup water: no need for oil or eggs in this recipe, just water!
- Milk Chocolate melting wafers
- Pink food coloring: optional for the white chocolate variation
- Walnuts or Sprinkles: completely optional, but they both give these brownie care pops that extra something.
- 30-35 popsicle sticks: the popsicle sticks tend to hold the brownie pops better than the sucker sticks. But both will do the job.
Tips and Variations
- Extra Moist or Fudgier Brownie Pops: If you want your brownie pops to be more moist or fudgier, mix a large spoonful of chocolate frosting into the brownie crumbs before forming the balls. Keep in mind this will make it much sweeter as well.
- Pink White Chocolate Options: Substitute the Milk Chocolate melting wafers for White Chocolate melting wafers and get some pink food coloring. Make the brownie cake pop balls as the recipe states. Then omit the milk chocolate and melt the white chocolate wafters in a microwave-safe bowl or a mug for 15-second intervals, stirring between intervals until smooth. Stir in one drop of food coloring to turn the chocolate pink. Before the chocolate sets, add some valentine sprinkles and allow to chocolate to set. Tie the sticks with a bow and you have a cute variation of this delicious chocolate treat.
- Having problems with your sticks staying in the brownie pops? Dip your stick tip in some of the melted chocolate before pushing it into the brownie pop. That melted chocolate will dry and that will help the stick stay in. It also gives it more strength for handling the brownie pops. I do this extra step when I know my kids are going to be helping or eating them, which is always!
Here is the Recipe for Easy and Fudgy Brownie Cake Pops
Easy and Fudgy Brownie Cake Pops
- 1 box Seriously Fudgy Brownie Mix
- ⅔ cup water
- 9 oz milk chocolate melting wafers Ghiradelli is best
- ½ cup walnuts chopped
- sprinkles optional
- Make the brownies according to package instructions and let them cool for at least 20 minutes once they come out of the oven.
- Remove the brownie edges (and save for snacking later or leave them in for some added texture).
- Crumble the remaining brownie and use an ice cream scoop to scoop uniform balls, rounding them out with your hands.
- Place the brownie balls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or wax paper and insert a stick into each. Let chill for 30 minutes or until cooled and set.
- Melt the chocolate wafers in a microwave-safe bowl or a mug for 15-second intervals, stirring between intervals until smooth.
- Dip the brownie pop into the melted chocolate to cover the brownie. Pulling it out of the chocolate, gently spin the pop to evenly coat the brownie and to remove any excess chocolate.
- Before the chocolate sets, add the walnuts if desired. Let the chocolate set and enjoy your Valentine’s Day goodies with your Valentine.
