- 1 cup cocoa powder
- 3/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/8 teaspoon pink salt

- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon butter or coconut oil

How To Make Sprinkle Brownie Cake Pops At Home
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare an 8 inch baking dish by lining it with parchment paper.
- Add in the oat flour, cocoa powder, coconut sugar, baking soda, and salt to a large mixing bowl and whisk the dry ingredients together until they are well mixed.
- Pour in the melted butter into the dry ingredients and stir until you get a wet batter. Add in the egg and vanilla extract and continue whisking until mixed.
- Next, pour the brownie batter into the prepared baking dish, using a spatula to spread it evenly if needed. Bake the brownies for 20 minutes to get fudge-texture brownies.
- While the brownies are baking, melt the dark chocolate chips with butter or coconut oil in a sauce pan. It’s important to let the brownies cool completely before attempting to cut them and dip them in the melted chocolate. If you’re in a rush, place the brownies on a rack (lift them up by the parchment paper sides), then place the rack inside the freezer for 20 minutes. Cut them into 12-16 squares once they are cooled completely.
- Place a wire rack on top of a sheet pan. Take a brownie square and dip the top half into the chocolate ganache. Place it onto the wire rack and lightly pour sprinkles onto the chocolate. Repeat this with each brownie square, then gently place the popsicle or treat sticks into the bottom half of the brownie. Let the ganache harden before placing the brownie in a lunch box or storage.
- These brownies can be stored in an airtight container for a day on the counter, then store them in the refrigerator. They are naturally gluten free and nut free, perfect for classroom lunches and for sharing!
