Brownie Pops and Squirrel Visitor


How is your day?  It's a beautiful snowy winter's day here in the Yukon.  

My son requested this fun treat and it was fun to make. 

They are brownie pops.  
I used my regular brownie recipe and poured it into a new pan that my son was given.  It has the greatest shape and they cooked very quickly and evenly in it.  

Then we melted semi-sweet chocolate chips: dipped the pops in,
rolled in sprinkles, and popped in a jar until consumed. 

A fun quick activity to fill an afternoon sweet tooth.

The pictures of the close ups are a bit blurry, but I didn't have time to take more 
since they didn't last very long.  

This pan is from Wilton and is non-stick.  I'm not a fan of non-stick, but it works great and I don't think it'll be over used to where the coating is pealing.  

Next time we're going to try it with regular cake.


3 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup melted butter
3/4 cup baking cocoa
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt

* Mix all wet ingredients together then add the dry.
*Bake 350F for about 30 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. 
(of course with these pops I just had to wait and check on them)
* cool in pan and then remove and cut up. 
(With the pops, they slid right out of the pan and cooled on the rack)

I love this recipe since it turns out perfect each time...
never did have that with melting the chocolate squares. 

I also want to introduce you to Chubs.  He's one of the resident squirrels in our yard.
He's very curious and friendly.  

On this day he came down the tree to talk to me.  
He listened to me talk to him and was interested in me taking pictures of him. 

He often talks to the kids while they're out, and plays games with our dog Sophie.  

The squirrels like to make these tunnels in the snow and have stashes of seeds that we no doubt will discover in the spring.  It's fun to watch them diving into them and popping up in other areas of the yard. 

Well thank you for dropping by!  I hope you have a delightful day!

What a fun way to eat brownies! Having the right pan sounds very important too. Indeed a fun afternoon with your children! And I love Chubs, I have several of them in our yard too, they like to eat up all the birdseed I put out, lol. I suppose their bellies need to be fed too. They are quite inquisitive I've noticed. Hope you are having a lovely day sweet friend :)
