Get your favorite brownie mix. This will also work if you do it with cake mix. I like brownies better, so this is what I chose. They're goo-ier and more moist than cake pops, but either way is fine!
Bake the brownies/cake according to box instructions. In this case, I had to add oil, water and 2 eggs. If you want it more cake-like, add 3 eggs instead.
Mix the batter and pop it in the oven. Let it bake thoroughly. I put mine in at 390 degrees for 20ish minutes. It's ready when you stick a fork in it and it comes out clean.
While your brownie is baking, make the nutella! I took out WAY too much. A big spoonful will be fine. Add and mix in milk until you get a mixture that easily drips down from spoon to bowl.
Try and get rid of those bubbles in the mixture, but if you cant its ok! They're filled with delicious nutella :)
Now its on to the cake pops! Once brownie is done, let it cool down a bit. Then add a big dollop of frosting (vanilla here) into a bowl and add in spoonfuls of brownie. Don't add the crust.
Mix them together until you get a moldable consistency. It shouldn't be too hard OR too soft, but just perfect for making little balls out of.
Next, get your hands dirty! Grab some, roll them into balls with the palms of your hands, then gently twist a lollipop stick inside each one. Once plate is full, put them in the fridge for 5-10 mins
Once theyre out of the fridge, they will be a bit harder and less prone to drooping. Time for nutella! Gently pick them up by the stick and twirl them in nutella. I only covered the top half of mine.
Once you have them covered in the nutella icing, pop them back into the fridge. This is essential so that the nutella hardens a little. It will be less messy, and it won't get all over the candies
My daughter wanted hers in the vanilla frosting instead. I just used my finger to spread the frosting all over hers. I'm not a fan of lots of icing, but they turned out yummy nonetheless!
Separate your decoration candies in cupcake cups. They're LIFESAVERS and way less messy. We bought a can of 6 different chocolate candies at target and poured some in each cup. PLUS coconut, duh :)
After twirling them around in the cups, and making sure we got the top tips too, we popped them back in the fridge for a few minutes for the nutella icing, and vanilla frosting to properly glue on.
And, DONE! How pretty are they??? And so delicious. Ours were gone in a matter of hours.
