36 brownie pops

Ingredients

  • cooking spray

  • 2 (18.3 ounce) packages fudge brownie mix (such as Duncan Hines®)

  • 1 cup vegetable oil

  • 4 eggs

  • ½ cup water

Ganache:

  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream

  • 1 (16 ounce) package confectioners' coating (such as Wilton® Candy Melts®)

  • lollipop sticks

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat an 11x15-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

  2. Empty brownie mix into a large bowl. Add vegetable oil, eggs, and water; stir with a wooden spoon until batter is well blended. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted 1 inch from the edge of the pan comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool completely, about 30 minutes.

  4. Combine chocolate chips and heavy cream in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until melted and smooth. Cool, about 5 minutes.

  5. Break brownies into pieces and place in a large bowl. Pour ganache evenly over brownie pieces; mix thoroughly.

  6. Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper. Press brownie mixture evenly into the pan. Freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.

  7. Pour confectioners' coating into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at 50 percent power for 1 minute; stir thoroughly. Continue to microwave and stir at 30-second intervals until smooth and completely melted, 1 to 2 minutes more.

  8. Roll brownie mixture into balls; insert a lollipop stick halfway into each. Dip balls one at a time into melted confectioners' coating to form a thin, even coating, letting the excess drip off. Stick into a styrofoam block; let stand until coating hardens, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You could decorate truffles with sprinkles, colored sugar, etc. but work quickly, candy coating will harden fast!

To make brownie cut-outs, cut brownies into desired shapes with a cookie cutter and then dip into coating.

Editor's Note:

The directions for making brownies are based on the particular brand mentioned. Follow instructions on the box if using a different brand.
