Since summer started, we’ve been eating ice cream a lot. It’s the classic summer dessert, and of course we love it…but believe it or not, after a while, I actually started to get tired of it. (Crazy, right?) So, for a change of pace, I decided to come up with a new kind of summertime sweet. Popsicles are a classic summer treat, and brownies are a classic any time of year…so why not combine the two?
Turning brownies into popsicles is actually a lot easier than you’d think. You start by baking the brownies the normal way, then trim them into a popsicle shape. (What do you do with all the trimmed-off crumbs? Um…what crumbs? :-9)
Then, you just dip the popsicle-shaped brownies into melted chocolate – brown, white, or pink – and scatter sprinkles or jimmies on top. Pop them in the fridge, and let them chill until the chocolate sets. Then slip a popsicle stick in the un-dipped end, and your Brownie Popsicles are ready to enjoy.
These are great either for dessert, or for a snack when you’re just chillin’. (See what I did there?)
1 pkg. Fudge Brownies, prepared
Wilton Chocolate Melting Discs, White
Wilton Chocolate Melting Discs, Pink
Wilton Chocolate Melting Discs, Brown
Jimmies or Sprinkles
1. Cut out six popsicle shaped brownies. I made mine about 3 inches long and rounded the top edges.
2. Next, melt each chocolate color in the microwave. Heat each for 30 seconds at a time, and stir after each time until chocolate is completely melted. Dip brownies in the pink, white or milk chocolate, leaving the bottom ½ of the brownie uncovered.
3. Sprinkle the jimmies or sprinkles on each popsicle and let set until the chocolate is hard. Gently push a popsicle stick into each brownie at the end that you left with no chocolate.
