Mega Brownie Pop {Birthday "Cake"}

My husband is a huge fan of my brownie pops!

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.

It will be divided up when it's eaten though:)   This giant pop would probably make 20-24 small pops. We'll see how it works out tomorrow. I suppose I will slice it up.

I will need to use some candy melts to adhere some birthday candles to the brownie pop to make it a proper birthday "cake".

All packaged up and ready to present to the Birthday Boy!

Mega Brownie Pop
Ingredients: 
Brownies
Icing
Candy Melts (one 14 oz. bag)
sprinkles
12-inch plastic dowel (1/2-inch in diameter)

Instructions:
*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.
*Apply sprinkles
*When the candy melts harden, lift up the pop and spread some candy melt on the bottom of the pop to cover.
*Let dry

Voila!  A MEGA BROWNIE POP!  Enjoy, and have fun!

  31. What a fun idea! I have been on a no dairy diet for the last 2 weeks (to see if my newborn has a food allergy), and seeing all of these baked goods on your blog is making the diet very difficult ;)
