How to make brownie-dusted cake pops at home


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare an 8-inch baking dish by lining it with parchment paper.
  2. Add the oatmeal, cocoa powder, coconut sugar, baking soda and salt to a large mixing bowl and whisk the dry ingredients together until well blended.
  3. Pour the melted butter over the dry ingredients and stir until you get a moist dough. Add egg and vanilla extract and continue whisking until combined.
  4. Next, pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking dish, using a spatula to spread it evenly if needed. Bake brownies for 20 minutes for fudge brownies.
  5. While the brownies are baking, melt the dark chocolate chips with butter or coconut oil in a pan. It’s important to let the brownies cool completely before trying to cut them and dip them in the melted chocolate. If you’re in a hurry, place the brownies on a rack (lift them up by the parchment sides), then place the rack in the freezer for 20 minutes. Cut them into 12-16 squares once they are completely cooled.
  6. Place a wire rack on top of a baking sheet. Take a brownie square and dip the top half in the chocolate ganache. Place it on the wire rack and lightly sprinkle sprinkles over the chocolate. Repeat this with each brownie square, then carefully place the popsicle or candy sticks into the bottom half of the brownie. Let the ganache harden before placing the brownie in a lunch box or storage.
  7. These brownies can be kept in an airtight container for up to a day on the counter, then stored in the refrigerator. They are naturally gluten-free and nut-free, perfect for lunches in the classroom and for sharing!
