Tips and Tricks for Making Heart-Shaped Brownie Pops…

  • Use a straw instead of a lollipop stick. It is a little wider and will hold the brownie batter
  • Make sure the brownie has completely cooled before inserting the straw. If it is still warm, it may crack.
  • Add a little frosting to the tip of the straw before inserting it and at the point where the brownie and straw come together – for added support.

What Makes Brownies Fudgy?

  • A fudgy brownie has more fat content, like butter, and fewer eggs than a cake brownie. To make a cake-like brownie, add an extra egg to the batter.

  • After brownies have cooled completely, lift them out of the baking dish. Push cookie cutters into the baked brownies with the parchment paper still underneath. Use kitchen shears – if needed. You can cut around the outline you’ve made with the cookie-cutter impression. Set aside scraps for snacking.

  • parchment paper
  • 3 inch heart cookie cutters
  • paper straws – Valentine's Day colors optional


  • 18 oz. fudge brownie mix plus ingredients needed from the box instructions like eggs, water, and oil
  • 16 oz. Pink Frosting – I used Strawberries and Cream by Duncan Hines
  • 3 oz. Valentine Sprinkles
  • 1 oz. Frosting in a squeeze tube


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • Line your dish with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl combine your brownie mix, oil, water, and eggs – as directed on the box. Stir until well blended
  • Spread into your prepared 9×13 pan – lined with parchment paper
  • Bake using instructions on the box
  • Now, lift the brownies out of the pan with parchment paper still under them. Just grab the edges of the paper, and transfer brownies to a wire rack to cool.
  • Let them cool completely. At least 30 minutes – If you don’t they may be too soft, and fall apart.
  • When brownies have cooled – pull brownies out of the pan and with the paper still underneath place them on work surface
  • Use the cookie cutter to cut about 12 brownies. The scraps are for you, and the rest of the crew!
  • Frost brownies and decorate with your sprinkles, frosting, and/or candy
  • Optional – insert paper straws into hearts


Storage: Store brownies covered at room temperature for 3-4 days
