ok ok, I know what you’re thinking. “She said she wasn’t going to do them again” and by them you mean baked “pops”. Well that’s right, I wasn’t. But the type A in me has to figure them out. Not the baked part, the coating part. I can’t help myself.
I made some brownie balls, for treat day on request from Abby, and felt I needed to figure these stupid things out. So, I asked a few bloggy friends and tried a few of their recommendations.
- melt on lower heat
- remove from heat once melted
- add some shortening (which I wasn’t keen on but by the time you’ve made a cake pop and covered in candy, what’s a little extra shortening in the grande scheme of things????)
Somewhat success, at least they were much better, not quite as drippy.
I’m feeling better about these little devils! I do like making little brownie balls by using a mini muffin tin instead of mixing the brownies with icing. A lot less sweet, some might call them healthier!
The girls loved them too. I also made some marshmallow pops too as they were a huge hit. I kept it simple, just pumpkins!
thanks for looking!
