Tomorrow is his birthday, so I thought I would make him a GIANT brownie pop instead of a cake:) I know it will bring a corresponding giant smile to his face. It definitely has a certain WOW factor to it.
It was made just like a regular size brownie pop, except that I used the whole batch of brownies to form it instead of dividing the batter up into individual pops. It's even covered in chocolate candy melts.
I will need to use some candy melts to adhere some birthday candles to the brownie pop to make it a proper birthday "cake".
Mega Brownie Pop
Candy Melts (one 14 oz. bag)
12-inch plastic dowel (1/2-inch in diameter)
*Bake a batch of brownies~homemade or boxed (I used our favorite: Ghiradelli Triple Chocolate), enough for a 9x13 pan.
*Let cool completely.
*Put the whole batch (I omitted the crunchy crust and saved them in the freezer) in a large mixing bowl.
* Add just enough icing to form a giant brownie ball. I only needed about a 1/2 cup.
*Refrigerate it for about a half hour just to firm up, if needed.
* Insert the dowel
*Melt the candy melts according to the package directions and spread with a spatula.
*When the candy melts harden, lift up the pop and spread some candy melt on the bottom of the pop to cover.
Voila! A MEGA BROWNIE POP! Enjoy, and have fun!
