Ok I have been hiding this recipe in my arsenal since I got back from General Mills last time! These were a huge hit at Baking with Betty, and I knew they would be perfect for Halloween!
Now, I am going to tell you that I asked at Betty Crocker Kitchens if these could be made with Gluten Free Brownie Mix. I was told no. Hmmm…Why not? ~Side Note~ People, I am a rule breaker by nature. Don’t tell me I can’t do something, because I will figure it out myself. So, what does your favorite blogger do? Makes Brownie Pops with Betty Crocker Gluten Free Brownie Mix of course!
How did they turn out? You be the judge! All of the brownie pops pictured in my post are Gluten Free. You could also make this with a regular Brownie mix and they are just as delicious. I am just trying to give you options!
Also, if you need these to be dairy free, and you are worried about the chocolate. Use Ghirardelli Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips. They are dairy free and you can find them at the everyday supermarket! They are the only ones I use! YUM!
· 1 Box Brownie Mix ( I used Gluten Free)
· Ingredients called for on the brownie box
· Wooden craft sticks
· 1 Bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
· 1 ½ tablespoons shortening
· Sprinkles decorations etc
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line pan with aluminum foil. Make brownies according to package directions. Allow to cool completely for 1 hour.
Place brownies in the freezer for 30 minutes. Remove brownies from pan by lifting foil; peel foil from sides of brownies. Cut brownies into rectangular bars (numbers will vary depending on size). Don’t cut too big or they will be hard to work with.
Gently insert craft stick into end of each bar. Place on cookie sheet and freeze 30 minutes.
In small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips and shortening uncovers on high about 1 minute; stir until smooth. If necessary, microwave additional 5 seconds at a time.
Dip top 1/3 to ½ of each brownie into chocolate; sprinkle with candy sprinkles.
Lay flat on waxed paper or foil to dry.
Yes, I am the crazy mom who took the time to stick these in a Pumpkin, but check out how cool that would be for a party!
**These could be decorated for any occasion! Think about using white chocolate or peanut butter chips instead of chocolate chips. You can be creative as you want!**
Check out this one! I use gluten free stick pretzels and marshmallows to make eyes coming out of the top. A couple mini M&Ms and it is a cute little monster!
Oh, one more. This mummy face was made with just a regular size marshmallow that I cute with scissors and then stuck a couple sprinkle for eyes, neat huh?!
