thanksgiving brownie pops

by Amy on 17 November 2010

brownie pops + cake pops are all the rage + i decided make some bakerella-inspired turkeys in honor of thanksgiving. i bought a brownie pop pan +¬†lollipop sticks, then gathered up my decorating tools – candy corn for the feathers + beak, malted milk balls for heads, assorted frosting, + melted chocolate for coating the brownie + using as ‘glue.’ for my first attempt at brownie pops, i used a boxed brownie mix so i could focus on the decorating instead of a new recipe.

let’s go ahead + get it out there — i’m no turkey picasso. truthfully, my turkey pops lack a little finesse. perhaps the chocolate coating seems a bit lumpy. + yes, i’m pretty sure that turkeys don’t have blue eyes. but in a way, i feel that my sort-of-lumpy brownie turkey pop has a certain charm. a charm that makes me want to pop it in my mouth + devour all of its sugary goodness.

so if you’re looking for a cute thanksgiving dessert idea, why not give this a try? i imagine that with a bit of practice, + perhaps a slightly steadier hand, you could have some seriously cute turkeys in no time. + if you wind up with semi-lumpy blue-eyed brownie turkey pops, they’ll still taste delicious!

These turned out great–I don’t see any lumps at all (if you want to talk lumps, you should see my previous attempt at cake pops)! And quite frankly, no one would even notice as they pop these cauuuute treats into their mouths! Totally fun, you did an awesome job! Happy Thanksgiving week!

aww, you’re so sweet! for my first attempt at brownie/cake pops, i think they turned out pretty good. =) hope that you have an absolutely lovely thanksgiving, friend!

So cute! The not-so-perfect part makes them more rustic and home made and I like that more. What counts is how fun they are to look at and that they taste good. I think there is too much emphasis these days on perfection and it takes away from the enjoyment.

i absolutely could not agree more, renee. while i love it when a dish turns out perfectly + beautifully, there’s something special about a recipe that has a certain rustic + homemade charm to it. thanks for your sweet words, friend!
