This Christmas I asked for Bake Pops. We bought some at Starbucks once and the girls loved them. When I saw the infomercial for them I knew what I'd tell people I wanted for Christmas.
The girls were just buzzing about making something today so I got out the Bake Pop pan and together we whipped up some brownie mix and melted some chocolate chips.
I ran out of chocolate chips but I found some Reese's Peanut Butter chips which gave our Bake Pops some variety.
We used white chocolate to drizzle over the Bake Pops. But this was something I had to do myself, along with the dipping. I can't say it wasn't messy. It was VERY messy.
I plan on making more of these for Lily's classmates on Valentine's Day but honestly, I'm pooped. It took me a couple hours to make the ones shown here. Wasn't as simple and easy as the commercial makes it seem. But maybe it won't be so exhausting when I'm not 9 months pregnant.
Some tips if you are making these too! I used floral foam to put the Bake Pops in the freezer so that they wouldn't be flat on top. I just stuck them in the foam immediately after I dipped them. I won't lie. They were drippy. They got all over my freezer. But fortunately, once the chocolate is frozen it's easy to just pull off.
Also, for half of the batch I used regular Reese's Peanut Butter chips not dipping chocolate. At first they were too thick so I added just a TOUCH of canola oil. This made the melted chips just the right consistency. If you put too much oil just add more chips. Too much oil will make chips too thin and the brownie underneath will show. Plus it will run and run. Messy.
And the messy part doesn't end with the baking;)
But totally worth it. Yum!
Thanks Ann for all the Christmas fun!
