I saw these great little treats on the Williams-Sonoma website and I want to duplicate the idea. I am not a cakeball person, so I want to use brownies. But, I have NO idea how to get them in a round shape. I searched the net for half-sphere silicone molds with no luck (and not I am out of time!). Any ideas for getting the right shape?
Here is the link to the inspiration:
I would just put them in mini cupcake pans.. I wouldn't use a liner and then when they are done, you can insert the stick and decorate them.
I would use a ice cream scooper to make sure that eachon eis the same amount.
Hope that helps. POst pictures, can't wait to see them!!
What if you baked them in a regular pan then used a round cookie cutter to cut them out after they've cooled then slide a stick into them?
i would probably overfill the pan a little so they bake up nice and deep and use a melon baller to scoop out a nice round brownie.
i would bake a pan of chewy brownies and cool completely. then i would use a small scoop and scoop out the brownies and roll into a ball and insert a stick. do this until all the brownies are gone. then dip in melted chocolate and let set up. then pipe on the faces. i saw them in the catalogue also and thought i would try it too.
Thanks for all of the suggestions! I am going to try all three and then see what looks best.
I can not remember where I read it, but I saw that someone posted when they made the brownie pops they scooped them out with a small ice cream scooper and rolled them a little once they scooped them out.
Have you looked at bakeralla's site, she does the cupcake pops she has a youtube video on it on her site...its awesome!
Just use the same method as cake balls!
