Brownie pops offer sweet tastes

The Brownie Pop Mold is the starting point for a unique cake-decorating project.

The Brownie Pop Mold Wilton

Cake pops have become a popular cake-decorating project recently: you form a ball from cake scraps around a stick and then decorate with frosting and sprinkles. Preparing the cake pops for decorating can be the hardest part of the project, but the Brownie Pop Mold offers you a short cut. With the mold, brownies hold together better during the decorating process, making them an ideal base. Because of their consistency, you can bake brownies in a shape perfect for making a brownie pop. With cake, you must shape a pop after the cake has been baked.

The Brownie Pop Mold turns out brownie pops that are about 1.75 inch by 1.75 inch--perfectly bit sized. While the pan holds eight brownie pops at a time, the directions suggest that you can make 24 brownie pops out of one box mix. The Brownie Pop Mold is a silicone pan and is dishwasher safe. You will need to spray the pan with nonstick baking spray before use it: you'll be able to flip the pan over and gently push out each cake pop that way. From there, you can insert a stick into the brownie pop. The pops can be decorated in essentially the same way as a cake pop. The Brownie Pop Mold is available from Amazon for $10.99.
