Smurf Pops


I made some brownie pops for a friend the other day and ended up with a few bare pops leftover.  I thought about what I could do with them, and  realized that "The Smurfs"  just opened in theaters(Aug. 3). I couldn't resist attempting some smurf pops! I was up at the midnight hour working on them.

Don't look too closely...the candy melts ended up kind of gritty and my fondant work definitely has room for improvement, but I still think they are kind of cute:) 


The Smurf brownie pops are pretty simple to make...

Start by making the brownie pops as instructed HERE. Add some blue food colorimg (I used a combination of Wilton sky blue and royal blue) to the white vanilla candy melts (I reheated some from about a week ago-maybe that was part of the "gritty" problem). I shaped the ears and hat with fondant* and added them to the head while the icing was still wet. Also add the mini m&m nose and icing eyes (store-bought) at the same timeWait until the icing is completely dry and then add the smurfy smile with an edible marker.
TA DA, you will end up with smurf pops!

*I tasted the store-bought fondant and ended up spitting it out:(  I highly recommend making your own fondant!

  10. Great idea!! I was wondering what kind of coloring you used with the chocolate. If it's the regular kind (it will have water which will seize the chocolate) and not the oil based one, that may be the problem for the gritty look.

    Keep up the great work, thanks for sharing your ideas.

  14. How adorable! My oldest 29 now - had a smurf costume for dance when she was little, they are back! These are too cute. I agree, homemade fondant is so easy and so delicious and storebought is just ghastly! I love their little eyes - just magical.

  18. Ooh great idea Sue and they're so creative! I have some leftover "pop" cake too. I should make something with it rather than just eat it :P

  20. These are just too adorable! Being a fan of smurfs since I was a child, and considering my nephew loves smurfs and 'ble' in general, the ruined chocolate cake I froze just may become smurf pops :) BTW, looked back on all I missed since my plate has been full the past month, and wow to all of your beautiful creation! I must make a key lime pie shake ASAP!

  21. Love your fun ideas. These bring back such great memories of my childhood when I used to get up early on Saturday mornings to watch Smurfs. Thanks for linking them up to Sweets for a Saturday.

  23. I love these!! I'm going to have to try it out. If your candy melts get gritty you can add a little bit of oil to it and it should go back to normal.
