Here is a fun Christmas Recipe and creative way to put your candy canes to use… make some Candy Cane Brownie Lollipops!!

This recipe and guest post comes from my sweet friend,
Katie Hostetter
enjoy!!




My friend at church gave me the recipe for Candy Cane Brownie Lollipops from The Pampered Chef. I thought they were too cute!  I gathered up the ingredients, and while I had a bit of a fiasco the first time around with melting the chocolate almond bark, I persevered. And my toddler, Bradley, had the best time breaking the candy canes into little pieces. ;)  Check out the steps below.

Candy Cane Brownie Lollipops

Ingredients:

  • 1 package (18-21 oz.) fudge brownie mix (plus ingredients to make brownies)
  • 24 candy canes
  • 10 oz. chocolate-flavored almond bark
  • Additional decorations, such as red jimmies (optional)

Directions:

  • Line sheet pan with a piece of parchment paper. Lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions. Pour batter into pan. Bake 30 minutes, or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs attached. Remove from oven to cooling rack, and cool for 20 minutes or until slightly warm.
  • Meanwhile, cut straight ends of candy canes off to form 4½-inch sticks. Place candy cane tops into resealable plastic bag, and crush into small pieces. Set aside.
  • Roll brownie into 24 smooth balls. You can use a coffee scoop or something like that to make them the same size. (I didn’t have a coffee scoop, so I just eyeballed it. As with my homemade candy canes, these are like snowflakes. Every one is different!) Then, insert candy cane sticks into centers of balls, mounding brownie around each stick.
  • Place almond bark into small bowl. Microwave according to package directions until smooth. (The microwave method didn’t work out so well for me, so I used the stove-top directions the second time around. Worked like a charm!) Spoon melted bark evenly over each ball, turning to coat completely. Allow excess bark to drip off. Dip into reserved crushed candy canes or jimmies, and stand upright on a piece of parchment paper. Repeat with remaining almond bark, lollipops and crushed candy. Let stand until set.
  • You can place into miniature cupcake liners and wrap lollipops in cellophane, tie with ribbon and use as table décor, place cards, or take-home goodies for a special holiday touch. Yields 24 servings.

    I make this using cake mix and frosting-(found on allrecipes.com)
    Ingredients
    1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix (any kind)
    1 (16 ounce) container prepared chocolate frosting (any kind)
    1 (3 ounce) bar chocolate/almond bark
    Directions
    Prepare the cake mix according to package directions using any of the recommended pan sizes. When cake is done, crumble while warm into a large bowl, and stir in the frosting until well blended.
    Melt chocolate coating in a glass bowl in the microwave, or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth.
    Use a melon baller or small scoop to form balls of the chocolate cake mixture. Dip the balls in chocolate using a toothpick or fork to hold them. Place on waxed paper to set. You can also roll in pecans, nuts, peppermint, coconut, sprinkles!

    Ok, these look really yummy but I’m not sure I’m getting it. The Brownies are almost baked completely when you remove from oven so that you are still able to roll them into balls? If that is correct, once the lollipops are made, aren’t they still a little underbaked? Help me out here cause I want to maybe make some.

  3. Jessica says:

    The brownies will continue to bake as they are cooling. The main thing is you don’t want overbaked brownies! Or else they will just crumble and fall apart. :)

  4. Kylie says:

    WOW so cool i am amking these some time

  5. Amanda says:

    If you do overbake them…don’t worry! Just follow the idea with the frosting but crumble the brownies up instead of using crumbled cake. Mix frosting (any flavor…chocolate for chocolate freaks, strawberry for a little fruitiness, vanilla to make it decadent and to cut the chocolate flavor) with the crumbled brownies and roll into balls with your hands. Then dip :)

    Its almost like cake pops with a new twist!
    I am VERY popular for my cake pops n baking and these are sure to be a hit this year thank you so much for the new ideas.

    this sounds amazing, and i am thinking of doing an even easier version using donut holes… :)

  8. Anna says:

    Can you use just regular chocolate chips over a double boiler to mely or does it need to be the almond bark to hold all together?

  9. Lynn says:

    I made a batch of flourless brownies tonight and forgot the eggs. Needless to say, they fell apart. I remembered this post, squished it into balls, dipped them into melted chocolate chips and topped with crushed canes. VERY rich little “truffles”, but not too bad!! Thanks for salvaging my brownies!! (and yes, Anna, the chocolate chips worked- I microwaved them)
