Hey guys!  As I type this post, I am surrounded by hundreds of cookies and goodies from our most recent holiday baking exchange.  I can’t wait to package them all up and deliver them to friends and family during the holidays… if the boys and I don’t eat them all first *wink*.  These Candy Cane Brownie Cake Pops are a byproduct of my contribution to this years baking exchange…

These cake pops are AHmazing!!! Seriously, so good.  And the result of a recipe malfunction!  Ha ha.  This year I decided to make Candy Cane Brownies for our annual baking exchange.  After pulling the first batch out of the oven I made the mistake of trying to take the brownies out of the pan before they were completely cool.  They fell apart.  I was left with an entire pan full of moist, delicious broken brownies.

I made a trip to Michaels and picked up Candy Cane Candy Melts, lollipop sticks and crushed candy cane bits.  Then I simply assembled the cake pops.

These Candy Cane Brownie Cake Pops would be a perfect addition to any of your holiday festivities.  The peppermint and chocolate flavours are delish and the candy cane coating is always a hit!  I would love to see these packaged and individually wrapped in cellophane.  They would make the cutest party favours!!
