DARK CHOCOLATE BROWNIE POPS (Adapted from Ree Drummond)

My daughter made this adorable brownie pop for the tailgate. They were a huge hit – just the right size for a party, and they were delish!

2 cups powdered sugar

1 cup cocoa 

1 cup flour 

1/4 tsp salt 

2 sticks butter, melted 

1 TBSP vanilla 

2 lbs dark chocolate melting wafers 

Chocolate sprinkles and/or gold sprinkles, for decorating

20 lollipop sticks and a block of florist foam

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Sift together the sugar, cocoa, flour and salt.

Drizzle in the melted butter while still hot, add the vanilla, and stir until combined. Use a small cookie scoop to scoop out 20 portions, and use your hands to roll them into neat balls. Cookie scoop was found here.

Press a lollipop stick into each ball. Place on the prepared baking sheet and let cool at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Melt the chocolate wafers in a microwave or double boiler and let cool slightly. Dip each pop into the chocolate.

Lightly tap the stick on the side of the bowl so the chocolate sheets around the sides and drips off. Strew the sprinkles over the brownie pops. Place the sticks in the florist foam, and allow the pops to set at room temperature.
