golf ball brownie pops

One of the best parts of the golf cake I made my dad for Father's Day were the little brownie pop golf balls. I toyed with the idea of making either a hollow or solid white chocolate golf ball but decided that adding brownies {another favorite of his} would work really well.


This candy mold that I found on Amazon worked really well; they popped right out! I used a boxed fudge brownie mix, which I really don't do, but it cut down on prep time. If you're planning on making brownie pops, I think the fudge-y kind work the best because it eliminates the need for frosting to keep it together. For the white coating, I used white, vanilla flavored candy wafers for the shell but white chocolate would work too!

Need:
Brownies
Candy mold
Candy melts
Lollipop sticks
Small ice cream scoop

After brownies have cooled, use a small ice cream scoop to scoop brownies out of pan. Form into balls just slightly smaller than the golf ball mold.

Place onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze for 5-10 minutes.

Melt candy wafers. Dip one of the lollipop stick into melted wafers and place into the brownie balls. Be sure not to go all the way through!

{I used a spoon for this step.} Coat the golf ball molds with melted candy wafers and place brownie pop inside. Freeze for 15 minutes and then repeat on the other side.

And that's it! Pretty - and yummy! - golf ball brownie pops! I'd never made cake pops or brownie pops before {or even used a mold for that matter} but this was easy enough that I can't wait to try it again.

If you give these a go, let me know and send pictures!
