I enjoy being my own person and don’t like to really follow trends, or styles, etc. Yet sometimes things are cute or a good idea to me so I try them. I got a cake pop pan this past Halloween as my step-father wanted some of those cake pops… so I made some for his birthday. Recently I decided to make some brownies for the super bowel party we were attending and I got to thinking I bet they would make good cake pops too… so Chase and I set about to makes some…
Normally I make all things dessert from scratch, but I had been given a gluten-free brownie mix for Christmas and decided to try it.
You put the brownie mix, milk, applesauce, etc in and mix…
Then I used a small ice cream scoop to put the batter into the cake pop pan and baked at 350* for 12 minutes and placed a stick in them once they were cooled enough to pop out of the pan…
Finally I used melting chocolate and dipped them in adding sprinkles in the coordinating colors of the teams playing in the Superbowl…
They were a big hit with the family and with my co-workers (who I saved some for and took in the next day 😉 )… I think this is a trend I can make my own 🙂
They were pretty good… I am going to try different iceings to see hwo they hold up 🙂
What a great idea, I bet you will make them for lots of different occasions. I have seen that pan and wondered what on earth I would do with that, but you have a wonderful idea here.
I wasn’t sure I would use it at first either, but I could see how it would be good for kids partys and other occassions and you don’t eat too much 😉
And your dog is so cute, mine helps me cook too!!! He loves the crumbs and looks so disappointed if I don’t “accidentally” drop something!!!
Yes, my boys are big helpers in the kitchen, especially the cleaning up my mess part. On this recipe though he didn’t get much as I don’t let them have chocolate 😉
Ha, they look delicious!
They are tastey 🙂
Those turned out great! I’ve never seen that kind of pan before. I’ll have to keep my eye out for it. We like Bob’s GF Brownie mix – brownies are one of the things I don’t do from scratch around here.
The pan has little round bluges (mine has 6) and it has a top and bottom that look exactly alike outside of the lock 🙂 I usually do brownies from scratch, but this mix may convert me 😉
they came out great! like your trend too! 🙂 and Chase is looking adorable as always!
He is a cutie… a little sick today and still cute 🙂 I am glad you liked the pops 😉
Megan will love these! We will make them soon 🙂
Oh I hope she does… they are really good and a nice treat after a hard day at school and the feed yard 🙂
That’s not fair! Just came in from the barn…. spent all day cleaning in the cold, made a cup of tea and thought I’d check my e-mail. Chocolate cake pops…. They look so good. and would make a perfect treat to the end of my day. By the way, I use Bob’s Red Mill products all the time. I don’t need gluten-free but I have a friend who does, good to know that mix is a winner. Oh, my who isn’t in love with your dog!
I am in love with my pups 😉 My Chase has been a little under the weather today, hopefully he will be better soon 🙂 Cake pops are good with tea I wish I had some left to send you 🙂 Sounds like you had a hard productive day 🙂 All the gluten-free Bobs Red Mill products I have tried are good and I love their gluten-free all purpose flour. Tell your friend to try this mix if she loves brownies she will really enjoy this 🙂
Cake pops are really a “thing” right now and they are so cute! Do you know I have never had one? Maybe it’s time. 🙂
There are many ways to make them you can make them without a cake pop pan. Check out recipies online (Starbucks has good ones too, but they are not gluten-free if you need that). 🙂
They look great, I will have to try these! And your dogs do so well posing for your pictures! Mine never stays still long enough to not be a blur. 🙂
I hope you can try them and let me know how they come out 🙂 I train my pups from an eary age to pose… but they don’t always coperate with me either 😉
