I’ve had some truly awful attempts at making cake pops.  Some absolute disasters!  On a whim, I decided to use some offcuts of brownies from a recent recipe, and see if it would work.  And it DID.  I was so surprised, and chuffed to bits!  Here’s what I did…cake pop

Brownie offcuts (recipe here on how to make a low fat, but super indulgent tasting brownie)
Candy Melts (I used the pink ones)


  • Roll brownie off-cuts together and make a ball.  The mixture should be easy to work with because the brownie is so fudgy!
  • Put the balls on a baking tray lined with baking paper, and put it in the freezer for 1-2 hours
  • Remove from freezer
  • Insert a cake pop stick about halfway into each cake pop
  • Melt Candy Melts in the microwave.  5 discs per cake pop should be fine
  • Spread the Candy Melt mixture on each cake pop
  • Use a cake pop stand to hold the cake pops steady, or put them in a block of polystyrene
  • Allow to set, and then enjoy!
