Easy Brownie Pops You Can Make Together
Back to school seems to signal the start of a season of celebration around our house. We like to celebrate the new school year to help the kids get excited about it!
Around our house, time seems to fly pretty quickly to Halloween, then Carrigan’s birthday, then Thanksgiving, Weston’s birthday, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve! Then I’m a tired mom but a happy mom!
This year we have some travel thrown in this busy season too! So many reasons to celebrate around here!
We’re kicking off the celebrations with easy brownie pops!
Learning how to make brownie pops was a breeze for Carrigan. She reminded me that she wants to be a cooker when she grows up so she is good at baking brownies.
She’s also a HUGE fan of brownies. The girl would eat them every single day if I let her!
The truth is that she’s pretty much a master at making Pillsbury brownies. No one around here has any complaints about that at all!
Pillsbury helps make any baking occasion become a celebration without the hassle of making everything from scratch. So, it’s a brand that’s a staple in our pantry.
Recently we’ve added a new staple to our baking must-haves. The new Pillsbury Filled Pastry Bag allows you to easily pipe frosting onto baked goods since it is in ready-to-go packaging. This has saved me from so many messes!
I’m in love!
Brownie Pop Recipe Ingredients
Easy brownie pops are as simple as making a batch of Pillsbury brownies. Learning how to make a brownie pop really just involves a few extra steps.
And this brownie pops recipe is extremely versatile. By changing the shape or your decorations, you can really celebrate any special occasion!
Check out what you need to make your own easy brownie pops:
- Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix
- Pillsbury Pastry Bag Chocolate Fudge Frosting
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup water
- 2/3 oil
- Lollipop sticks or wooden craft sticks
- Sprinkles or decorations of your choice
- Parchment paper
We chose a heart shaped cookie cutter because Carrigan loves school. As a mom, I thought it was a cute way to send the kids off to school with love!
You can choose any shape you’d like, just be sure to choose a smaller sized cookie cutter so your brownie can stay on the stick!
How to Make Brownie Pops
- Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, mix brownie mix, eggs, water, and oil.
- Pour into baking dish (you want to be sure your brownies are not going to be thicker than your cookie cutter!)
- Bake according to the directions on the packaging.
- Allow brownies to cool completely. (This was the biggest challenge for Carrigan. She likes warm brownies!)
- Lay out a piece of parchment paper.
- Press your cookie cutter into the cooled brownies and remove carefully.
- Place heart shaped brownie on the parchment paper.
- Cut as many shaped brownies as you want. One per brownie pop!
- Gently press a lollipop stick into the bottom of each brownie. You can use a bit of frosting to help hold it, if needed.
- Frost each brownie and decorate.
Then enjoy them with the people you love!
This brownie pops recipe is a great one to make if you have kids who like to get in the kitchen with you. Carrigan was able to help with almost every step!
I dealt with the raw eggs and the oven. But she was able to mix the Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix up for us. Then she helped cut the brownies and decorate them with the Pillsbury Filled Pastry Bag Chocolate Fudge Frosting!
What I love about the pre-filled Pillsbury pastry bag is that it makes frosting a fun activity for bakers of all skill levels! Carrigan can use it on her own and we have very little clean up afterward!
