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!
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: Rocky Road Brownies - Just 7 Ingredients
Just a brownie mix and a few toppings and – presto! – you have a bakery-style brownie that will be the heartthrob of chocoholics you know.
The “Rocky Road” flavor’s origins lay in the ice cream industry. William Dreyer, partner to Joseph Edy (of Edy’s Grand Ice Cream), is credited with inventing the flavor in 1929.
Dreyer dressed up a dish of chocolate ice cream with chopped nuts and marshmallows cut with his wife’s sewing shears. The resulting Rocky Road became Edy’s Ice Cream’s first blockbuster ice cream flavor.
Since then, the combination has been transferred to other desserts, as here, with runaway results. Try these amazing brownies for yourself and see.
Prep time: 10 minutes

Use it for kids ages 3-12 at home, school, church, in the community, or with your homeschool group. It's perfect when you're trying to social distance, too, because you can conduct activities outside.
