Rocky road brownie pops: Mini brownies in your hand

 I know that I have too many chocolate recipes in my blog, haha. Well, I can't do anything about it, because I'm the real chocoholic!!!

 Chocolate comes in many forms, you can have deep dark chocolate cakes, or the sweetest one, it can be sophisticated or cute, and today it comes in super cute form. The rocky road brownie is on a stick! But you have it all, the delicious dark chocolate base brownie, the nuts and the marshmallow ^^.
The base for the pop is very moist so you need to refrigerate it or it will be soften easily, but from the fact that you need to refrigerate it, it's easier to cover it with real chocolate. I use 60% dark chocolate for covering the pops, but you can choose other percentage of chocolate, it depends on your taste.
I think that rather than keeping, the brownie pops would be a great gift to give your friends, 15 pieces is too much to eat alone, haha.

 Put the water and sugar into the saucepan, place over medium heat until boil and the sugar melt. Remove from the heat.
Put the butter and melted chocolate into the pan, stir until combine.
Let it cool for 15 minutes.
Pour the egg, and vanilla extract into the pan, stir to combine. Add the flour mixture, stir until combine.

Let it cool completely, then finely crumb the brownie.

Divide into 15 pieces (30g/each), push the marshmallow into the ball and roll to enclose, refrigerate for 30 minutes.


Dip the lollipop stick in the melted chocolate, and insert a stick into each, place on the trays and refrigerate until chilled and firm. Carefully dip each pop in the chocolate, gently twirling off excess. Roll each in the walnuts to coat well. Stand in Styrofoam to dry. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
