To make Peppermint Brownie Pops, you will only need a box of brownie mix, peppermint extract, white chocolate, lollipop sticks, and some sprinkles. One of the easiest holiday treats you can make.
My first #ChristmasWeek treat is Peppermint Brownie Pops — a kid favorite and SO easy! They are made with a boxed fudge brownie mix of your choice, with a bit of peppermint extract mixed in. The brownie mix is baked, like usual, and after baking and cooling, you will make round balls of brownie.
Cake pop or lollipop sticks are dipped in white chocolate and then inserted into the middle of each brownie ball. Freeze them for about 30 minutes to help set everything.
The brownie pops are fully dipped and covered in white chocolate and sprinkled with crushed peppermint or sprinkles to make them even more fun. That’s all there is to it.
Peppermint Brownie Pops
- 1 box fudge brownie mix for 13x9" baking dish; mixed according to instructions on box
- 1 1/2 teaspoons peppermint extract
- 12 ounces white chocolate chips
- Cake pop or lollipop sticks about 20
- Finely crushed candy canes or peppermint sprinkles
Stir peppermint extra into brownie batter. Bake brownies according to package instructions.
When done baking, allow to cool. Scoop out a small amount of brownies and shape into a ball, avoiding brownies at the very edge of the pan as the crispiness of the edges may interfere with making nice, smooth, round balls. Place balls on a wax paper lined plate or tray.
Melt chocolate in microwave in a microwave safe bowl at 20-30 second intervals, stirring after each 20-30 seconds, until chocolate is completely melted.
Dip the end of 1 stick into the melted chocolate and then directly into the center of one of the brownie balls. Repeat with remaining brownie balls, placing balls, with sticks pointing upwards, back onto wax lined plate or tray.
Place brownie balls in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Remelt chocolate, if necessary. Dip each brownie ball into melted chocolate, allowing excess to fall off. Sprinkle with crushed candy canes or sprinkles. All to dry completely before serving.
