How to Make Candy Cane Brownie Lollipops for Christmas


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

1. Line Medium Sheet Pan with a 13 inch 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 Stackable Cooling Rack and cool for 20 minutes or until slightly warm.

2. Meanwhile, cut straight ends of candy canes off to form 4 ½ inch sticks using Utility Knife. Place candy cane tops into resealable plastic bag and crush using flat side of Meat Tenderizer, set aside.

3. Using Medium Scoop, scoop brownie into 24 rounded scoops, packing brownie into scoop using hands. (Entire brownie will be used.) Roll brownie scoops into smooth balls. Insert candy cane sticks into centers of balls, mounding brownie around each stick.

4. Place almond bark into Small Batter Bowl. Microwave according to package directions until smooth. Spoon melted bark evenly over each brown 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. Place into miniature cupcake liners.

Wrap lollipops in cellophane, tie with ribbon, and use as table décor or take home goodies for a special holiday touch.
