Brownie Pops Flower Bouquet

By · Print This Post Print This Post

My birthday this week didn’t turn out quite like I expected. I was hoping to spend the morning shopping, but instead had a sick child, and ended up keeping both of my kids home from school. But, although cleaning up vomit is not my idea of fun, it ended up being a pretty good day after all. We slept in late and spent the day in our pajamas watching movies, playing lots of games, creating mosaic art projects, and making brownie pops. Since we had the time, I decided to make the brownies into a fun flower bouquet.  I thought they turned out so cute, I might just use the idea for a teacher gift at the end of the year.

Brownie Pops Flower Bouquet

What You’ll Need:

One GF brownie recipe (Try Gluten-Free Girl’s recipe or a mix from the Gluten-Free Pantry or Betty Crocker.)

Wilton Round Brownie Pop Mold

Brownie Pop Sticks

Cupcake Paper Liners or construction paper for the petals

Directions:

  1. Mix the brownie batter according to the package or recipe instructions.
  2. Lightly spray the pan with oil. Then, fill the pan cavities 3/4 full and bake at the recipe/package recommended temperature.
  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until done.
  4. While the brownies are baking, prepare a vase for the brownie pops. I filled a ceramic vase with floral foam to hold the pops in place. You can cover the foam with tissue paper or wrapping paper to make it look prettier.
  5. Cut the cupcake papers to make flower petals. Fold the paper liner in half twice, and cut the bottom out. You can also do this with construction paper, but the cupcake liners are quick and easy.

  7. When the brownies are done, gently remove them from the pan and let them cool on a rack.
  8. When the brownies have cooled slightly, slide a pop stick into each of the brownies.
  9. If desired, dip the brownies into melted chocolate or candy and let dry completely before putting on the paper petal ring.
  10. If you’re not dipping the brownies into melted candy, simply slide the paper petal ring over the brownie pop and slide a pop stick into one side of the brownies. The stick will help keep the petals in place.
  11. I made 16 brownie pops with one brownie recipe.

Additional Notes:

You can really use your imagination to come up with more ideas on this one.

  • I cut the edges of the paper liners on some of these to make more-defined flower petals. You could also cut petals out of construction paper or wrapping paper for brighter colors.
  • You can dip the brownie pops into a variety of colored candy melts, for a more vibrantly colored flower. Add sprinkles or sugar while the candy is still wet so it sticks.
  • Insert the pop sticks into the brownies at various angles, to give the bouquet some variety.
  • If you don’t have the pop sticks, try Craft Sticks or chop sticks.
  • You can also make these without the sticks. Scallop the edges of the cupcake papers to look like a flower, but don’t cut out the bottom. Then, just place the brownie bites, flat side down, into the cupcake papers. A plate of these brownie flowers would be a great way to offer a treat at a party. And thanks to the papers, no plates or napkins would be needed.
  • These would make a great gift for teacher appreciation, mother’s day, or a flower theme party.

Wow, what an awesome idea and beautiful job you did! I used to always enjoy those days home when Son was sick (minus the v-word, too, of course). They would be a great teacher’s gift or gift to anyone! I’d much rather have those than flowers even. Way cute!
