Make a dessert that everyone will love at your holiday parties! Brownies cut into shapes and dipped in white chocolate— so. much. FUN!!!!
- 1c. butter
- 2c. sugar
- 3 eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 2 c. flour
- 1/2c. cocoa
- 1/2tsp. salt
- 1c. milk
- 1 1/2 bags of Wiltons Candy Melts (in whatever colors you want!)
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Cream butter and sugar together.
- Beat in eggs, cocoa, vanilla and salt.
- Add flour and milk (alternating them and mixing well in between)
- Spread evenly in greased jelly roll pan.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until done in center and just starting to pull away from sides.
- Cool completely
- Using a sharp cookie cutter, cut small shapes out of the brownies. (I just used my finger to gently push the brownie out of the cutter and onto a cutting board.
- Place excess brownie pieces into a freezer bag and freeze for another day (we are having brownie sundaes later this week!) 🙂
- Melt each color of candy melt in separate bowls, microwaving for 30 second increments and stirring in between until smooth.
- GENTLY set brownie cut-out into melted chocolate and scoop chocolate over the top. Lift out with fork and tap excess chocolate off. Place on parchment paper to harden.
- Decorate with sprinkles or by drizzling candy melts over the top.
My thoughts: These are SO much fun to make!!! The brownies are very easy to cut into shapes- its a good “cake- like” brownie recipe (you would not want to use a fudge brownie with this!) The hardest part is dipping them in the candy melts. Its not NEARLY as difficult as those crazy cake-pops, but you do have to be gentle and really keep your fork and bowl edge clean as crumbs can get into the melted chocolate and ruin the texture of it. If you want to skip the chocolate coating part you could easily just decorate these cute little brownies with frosting too! Enjoy!

Wow! So perfect for the 4th!
This is such a good idea for the 4th! Who doesn’t love brownies? Especially a really cute brownie.
Love these for the 4th! I’ve done brownie pops before, but I like your use of red, white, and blue; very cute!
These are so cute! What a great idea!
Adorable! Perfect for a 4th of July neighborhood picnic with lots of kids!
Yummers! I could go for a sweet treat right now and those brownies look amazing!
Hi, What a great idea for 4th of July entertaining. I don’t like to do a lot of baking in the summer but I think I’ll do these real early in the morning when it’s cool. Yes, and we must always remember those that are dedicated to keeping our country free.
Thank you! Happy 4th!
Perfect! So simple but I LOVE! Who doesn’t love brownies dipped in chocolate.
Thanks Tiffany! Your site is SO fun– love the name (and the coconut cupcakes- wow….) nice to meet you!
What a great idea! I do have one question… Did you mean Cocoa powder? That might seem like a dumb question, haha. Thanks!
Not a dumb question at all- yes, unsweetened cocoa powder.
I am thinking this would be great for football shaped brownies I have to make for our highschool boys. Could use chocolate candy melts and just pipe on white…… Thanks for the recipe, I have been looking for a good brownie recipe that could be cut into shapes that would be jelly pan sized!!
That’s a PERFECT idea!!! Love it- they will be so cute!!!
