Craving something sweet and salty? Try these easy Sweet and Salty Brownie Cake Pops for a yummy treat everyone will love!
I have always had a weakness for sweet and salty snacks.
A little sprinkle of sea salt or fleur de sel on ice cream, apple crisp or even on these chocolatey brownie cake pops can make something ordinary, extraordinary. The combination of sea salt and Dove® Dark Chocolate is one of my favorites. It’s a match made in heaven.
Cake pops are a fun and easy treat. My kids love these. As much as kids love them, adults love them too. It can actually be a fun little baking project with the kiddos. They are quick to make thanks to a box of your favorite brownie mix and Dove® Dark Chocolate. They are a fun little treat for your next weekend barbecue. Who can resist cake or in this case a brownie on a stick? Great for portion control as well. Now if I could only restrain myself to eating just one.
Speaking of which, these store great in the freezer. If you only need or want to make a few, you can store the rest of the balls in a freezer safe container or bag until you are ready to make the rest. Once you have a craving for more, simply pop a few out of the freezer and let them thaw slightly. They defrost fast. Add a lollipop stick then roll them in the creamy melted Dove® Dark Chocolate and crushed pretzels. Sprinkle them with a little sea salt for the final touch.
Just talking about these makes me crave one. Thankfully I have a few in my freezer!
If you don’t have lollipop sticks you can simply roll these in the Dove® Dark Chocolate, top with the pretzel and salt and make them into little brownie bites, or truffles. How cute is that?
Instead of taking a batch of brownies to your next gathering with friends or family, gives these little bites of Dove® Dark Chocolate sweet and salty brownie cake pops a try! They make a yummy treat everyone will love!
