Red Velvet Brownie Pops

Our 3B's Valentine's Party went so well! It was amazing to have all of our close friends together in one spot! I will post more pictures of the party over the next few days.

I was really proud of my desserts! I don't consider myself a baker, but they were all beautiful and delicious. Here is the first of many dessert recipes I will be posting for Valentine's day.

Red Velvet Brownie Pops

My Bubba gave me this for Christmas! I wasn't sure if it would work that well, but it is really nifty!! In 5 minutes you will have a perfect cake ball!
1 4oz bar of bittersweet chocolate
3/4 cups butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1 oz red food coloring
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
Break up chocolate place in a bowl with butter.
Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring each time until chocolate is melted.

Pour chocolate mixture into your kitchen aid mixer bowl. Turn on low speed and pour in sugar.
Add eggs one at a time to the bowl until blended in.

Add flour to bowl.

Add red food coloring to batter, followed by baking powder, vanilla extract and salt.


If you are making these in a baking dish, bake at 350 for 44-48 minutes. 

Read instructions on your babycake maker before using.
Spray cake maker with PAM. Once heated, pour 1 Tbsp of batter into each hole. 

Close and cook for 5-6 minutes.
Open and remove each ball with piercing fork.
Place on cooling rack.
Repeat until all batter is used up.
You can eat them now or......
Lollipop sticks can be inserted after cakes have cooled. Use a bit of icing or melted chocolate to get the sticks to stay in place.

We used this cream cheese icing recipe. (Emily made the icing when I was at work so I didn't get to take photos.)
1 8oz package of cream cheese (room temp)
3 Tbsp butter (room temp)
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
-Beat butter and cream cheese until creamy
-Gradually add remaining ingredients until blended.
I wanted some of the red cake to show through so I only iced the top half.

Sprinkle with red sugar. (be careful, your fingers might turn red!)
  Emily had this awesome crystal vase that was meant for rose stems. It is a perfect cake pop holder!
