Magical Disappearing Brownie Ball Snowmen


Remember those brownies I botched last week.  My friend Mikki gave me the idea to make brownie balls and dip them into chocolate.  This reminded me of an idea I saw online where you take brownie balls and make them into snow boys and snow girls!  So that is what I did.  I made magical snow people.  They are magical because they won’t melt BUT they will disappear. 

You could easily make this treat with cake balls if you like.  I do have to say that using the fudgy brownie mix was much easier though.  With the cake balls you have to make sure you get just the right amount of frosting and keep them cold.  With the brownies they are just the perfect consistency and they can be dipped either cold or room temperature but they do dip easier when they are on the cooler rather than the warmer side.


Moral of this story – even a mistake can turn into something delicious and cute and fun to make.  I may just have to botch a batch of brownies again!  Now, abracadabra!   Hey – where’d they go?  Did you eat them already?  I told you they’d disappear.

    Terrific idea. I received a cake pop maker for Christmas, but brownies excite my tastebuds more….dipped in chocolate! YUM!
