4th Of July Brownie Pops – Thursdays With Tracie

The other day as I was searching the internet for some fun summer treats for the boys, I came across an idea from good ole’ Betty Crocker! Popsicle shaped brownies on a stick. The boys LOVE popsicles and brownies, so I had to give them a try.

This is what you need:

1.  13x 9 brownie box mix ( I used Betty Crocker) and all the ingredients needed to make them (eggs, oil and water).

2.  White Almond Bark – Betty said to use melted chocolate chips  (let’s just say I tried this and it didn’t work!!) Maybe it was just me, but trust me, just get the almond bark)

3.  Popsicle sticks

4.  Sprinkles

Bake your brownies in a 13x 9 pan.  Instead of spraying the pan with cooking spray, place a piece of foil that covers the bottom and sides with at least a couple inches extra on each side, then spray non-stick spray on it and then pour your batter. Bake and let cool.  Once the brownies are cool, place them into the freezer for 30 min.

Take the brownies out of the freezer and cut off all the edges (saved those for me) and then cut the rest into rectangles. Peel the foil off, insert a popsicle stick and put back into the freezer for another 30 min.

Melt the almond bark, dip the brownies in the almond bark and then place on wax paper and add sprinkles.  Let cool.

I would highly suggest keeping these in the fridge until you are ready to serve them.  They are sooo good when they are cold (they taste almost like cookies and cream). They would also be really good if you wanted to dip them in crushed Oreos, after you dipped them in the almond bark, yum!! I am going to try that next.

These were really fun and the boys loved them.

I hope everyone has a great summer break.  We have been enjoying hanging out by the pool with Nana and Poppi and getting settled in our new home!

I just wish the boys knew it was summer break and didn’t get up at 5-6 am! Oh well, they usually get the hang of it by August… just in time to go back school :-).

See you next time.

Thanks for having me Mandy!
