What You'll Need

Get Started Making Your Pops!

There are several ways to make brownie pops, but here I will focus on how to make pops using the Wilton Brownie Pop Mold so that you can create the designs in the images shown on this page.  That said if you don't have the mold and just want to give brownie pops a try, you could simply bake a box of brownies using your favorite store-bought mix in a regular rectangular pan and then simply cut them into small square 1 inch pieces using a knife.  Follow the instructions below for inserting the sticks, dipping the brownie squares in candy melts, and decorating them.  You'll still end up with adorable party favors or spooky little chocolate covered brownie gifts for your party guests.

Now to make the more cone-shaped brownie pops shown on this page, you'll need the following items:

  • Your favorite store bought brownie mix (personally I used double chocolate Ghirardelli)
  • Eggs, oil, etc. as required on the brownie mix package
  • Wilton Brownie Pop Mold (one brownie mix makes 24 pops so I use 3 molds)
  • 6" lollipop or 8" brownie pop sticks
  • Cookie cooling rack & baking sheet (to set cooled brownies)
  • 4" clear treat bags if you plan to use these as shower, wedding, or birthday party favors
  • Ribbon to tie the treat bags closed
  • Candy melts or dipping chocolate (color depends on Halloween design you choose)
  • Optional candy dipping pot (I've found that this keeps the candy melted perfectly, but a regular double boiler will work just fine as well)
  • Halloween sprinkles or sugars (depends on design you choose)

Step 1 - Baking The Brownies & Making The "Pops"

Mix the brownies according to the package directions.  Then fill the Wilton Brownie Pop mold with the batter and bake according the mold instructions.  Please note that you should generously spray each cup in the mold with Pam or use a vegetable oil-dipped paper towel to grease the inside of each cup.

Let the brownies cool completely inside the molds on the counter or in the refrigerator.  Pat the bottoms flat and un-mold the brownies.  Insert the 6" or 8" stick in each brownie to create a "pop" and place them on a cookie cooling rack that is placed on top of a cookie sheet in preparation for decorating.

NOTE: Before inserting the pop sticks, decide which design you want to create.  As you can see in the photos below, sometimes the sticks go in the wide end of the brownie and sometimes they go in the "tip" of the cone shape depending on the design.

Step 2: Choose Your Design

Choose your favorite Halloween brownie pop design from the photos shown above and below.  Be sure to click on the image of the design that you like to get step-by-step instructions for any of the designs.

Most of them follow the same basic principles which are to dip the pops in chocolate or colored candy melt and then decorate with sugars, sprinkles, or edible "paint" pens to create the desired design.

Step 3: Pop Decorating

After choosing your design, you will know if you need white, orange, black or whatever color for the dipping process.  Follow the instructions on the candy melts to melt them either in the microwave or in your Wilton candy dipping pot.  Then dip the cooled brownie pops into the melted candy or chocolate.  For designs with sprinkles or sparkles, you will dip in the chocolate, then immediately dip the bottom of the pop into the sugar or sprinkles to ensure that it sticks to the pop.  Then cool the chocolate dipped brownies on the cooling rack with a cookie sheet underneath (or on parchment paper to keep them from sticking).

If you choose a design that has faces or lines like pumpkins, ghosts, eyeballs, etc., I suggest buying some edible paint pens so that you can simply draw the design on the cooled chocolate pops.  I've found this is much easier than using piped icing.

Step 4 - Display Your Pops

If you are using your pops to create a centerpiece at a Halloween party, you have several fun options.  One is shown above where someone took a colorful green colander and put it upside down on top of a plate then placed the brownie pops through the colander holes to create the centerpiece.  Alternatively, you could buy a small pumpkin and drill small holes all over the pumpkin where you can place the brownie lollipops.  I've seen this done to make fruit bouquets for Halloween centerpieces as well.  You can paint a jack o' lantern face on the outside of the pumpkin to make it even more festive.

Alternatively, if you plan to send the Halloween brownie or cake pops home with your guests as party favors, then you can place them inside individual clear cellophane favor bags and tie them with a piece of ribbon that matches the colors of the pops or inside individual party favor boxes that are a fun Halloween color like black or orange.  Set them out on a tray or in a Halloween gift basket and instruct guests to take one with them when they leave the party.

Halloween Brownie Bites

Here are some more ideas for bite-sized morsels of Halloween deliciousness!  Many of these ideas utilize the same Wilton Brownie Mold, but rather than decorating and making them into "pops", you simply serve them on plates, tiered stands, or in party favor boxes.  In any case, they are another great option for decorating and serving the treats you make in your Wilton molds.
