Look What You Can Do With This FREE Brownie Mix – Just Use This Code

Our friends at Prepared Pantry have some easy step by step directions for making brownie pops. It's a perfect winter day indoor activity!

Check out the instructions here.

You can make brownie pops in as little as 15 minutes. Simply roll the brownies into a ball, insert sticks, and dip them in chocolate.

Or make square brownies on a stick. Bake the brownies, cut them, insert the sticks and then freeze. Afterwards, dip the brownies in melted chocolate or frosting. (Freezing makes them hold together while dipping.) Then thaw to serve.

It’s a fun activity to do with the kids.

PLUS … Prepared Pantry will give you a brownie mix for FREE when you add the code ZBRN at checkout.

Feature: Valentine Brownies - Easy to Make With a Heart Cookie Cutter

There are oodles of recipe variations you can follow to make Valentine Brownies . But this is one of my favorites!

It’s easy to make, especially when you use a mix. Stir up a simple icing topping while the brownies are in the oven, spread it on top when the brownies are done, and add some sprinkles.

You can stop there and simply cut the brownies into traditional squares.

But here’s a little secret: cut the brownies with a heart cookie cutter… and you’ll win the hearts of your Valentines.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 24-28 minutes
Cutting time: 30 minutes
Makes 16-24 brownies, depending on the size of the cookie cutter
