Adorable Christmas Baking Gifts

So after many requests for some of my holiday recipes…This is one I will be making this year.

Candy Cane Brownie Lollipops

Pampered Chef Candy Cane Brownie Lollipops

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

1. Line Medium Sheet Pan (or 9-in. by 13-in. metal pan) with a 13-in. 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; cool 20 minutes or until still slightly warm.

2. Meanwhile, cut straight ends of candy canes off to form 4½-in. 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 to secure. Pinch each brownie ball where candy cane and
top of ball meet.

4. Place almond bark into Small Batter Bowl; microwave according to package directions until smooth. Spoon
melted bark evenly over each brownie ball, turning to coat completely. Be sure to coat where candy cane stick
meets brownie ball. 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.

Although the edges of the brownies are crusty, they don’t need to be discarded. Simply scoop the edges along with the center, and they’ll soften as they stand.  And lollipop sticks or stick candies can be substituted for the candy canes.  Wrap lollipops in cellophane, tie with ribbon and use as table décor, place cards or take-home goodies for a special holiday touch.  Just make sure you keep some for yourself to enjoy!
