The cupcake cake pops made so popular by Bakerella are made by crumbling up a cake, mixing it with frosting and shaping it into balls, to be stuck on popsicle-type sticks and decorated. They’re adorable and, although they’re a lot of hands-on work, they’re fun to make. These are the first things that I thought of when I saw Wilton’s new Brownie Pop Mold. The silicone pan contains eight deep, rounded cavities that bake give brownies just enough depth to retain their fudginess, while still enabling them to be skewered with popsicle sticks to look like cute cupcake pops and cakesicles.
Aside from keeping up with the cake-pop trend, the idea of brownie pops seems a little strange to devote a whole pan to. Fortunately, you can use this pan for other things, as well. It would make a fantastic mold for ice cream bon bons (just fill, freeze and dip in chocolate) or larger candies. You coupld pipe marshmallows into them to give your homemade ones a more rounded look. Sugar donut muffins baked in this pan would turn out looking like donut holes. The possibilities are endless and the pan gives you a lot more options that you would expext it to!
