Ingredients

Number of serving: 12
2 boxes of brownie mix and the necessary ingredients to go with it (eggs and oil)

a Wilton brownie pop mold

candy pop sticks

vanilla confectionary coating (Ghiradelli recommended)

red confectionary coating (Ghiradelli recommended)

Americolor pink and orange oil based dye, (to make a flesh toned coating for Santa)

dark chocolate confectionary coating (for the eyes and santa's smile)

red and green round sprinkles

Optional: carrot shaped sprinkles for the snowman's nose (or you can use the orange dye to make a small amount of orange tinted confectionary coating)

various cake decorating tips: #2, #3, #7

disposable pastry bags

wax paper

Preparation

  • Mix together the brownie mix according to the package directions. Fill the brownie pop mold about 2/3 full and bake according to brownie package directions, but adjust the baking time as necessary.
  • After the brownies have cooled, insert a candy stick into the rounded top of each brownie.
  • For the snowman: melt the vanilla confectionary coating in a tall coffee mug in the microwave. Carefully immerse each brownie pop into the melted coating, and set on wax paper to dry. Before the white coating is completely dry, place a carrot sprinkle and 2 green round sprinkles (for the buttons) on each coated brownie. Melt the red confectionary coating in the same manner. Spoon the melted red coating into a disposable pastry bag fitted with a coupler and a #7 Wilton cake decorating tip. Draw on a scarf around the circumference of the brownie. Melt the dark chocolate coating, place in a pastry bag fitted with a #2 tip, and dot 2 eyes on each snowman. Let dry completely and enjoy!
  • For the Santa: Melt vanilla confectionary coating in a tall coffee mug in the microwave. Depending on how much confectionary coating you melt, place a tiny amount of pink and orange dye into the mug and mix to create a flesh tone. Immerse each brownie pop into the melted coating. Place on wax paper to dry completely.
  • Melt red confectionary coating in the same manner. Scoop into a disposable pastry bag fitted with a coupler and #7 Wilton cake decorating tip. Draw on a hat on top of each coated brownie.
  • Melt dark chocolate coating, place in a pastry bag fitted with a #2 tip, and draw on eyes and a small smile on each brownie. Next, melt more vanilla coating, place in a pastry bag fitted with a #3 tip, and do small dots to create a beard. If the dots start to melt together, use the cake tip to pull the chocolate upwards to create little white tips. Lastly, place a red round sprinkle on the white beard, above the smile, for a nose. Let dry completely and enjoy!
