Can you dip brownies in thinned buttercream for cake pops

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Do you have to dip brownie/cake pops in melted chocolate only or will thinned buttercream stick?

I want to make some Thanksgiving themed brownie pops this weekend but instead of using melted chocolate I wanted to use a mocha buttercream instead.

TIA!

The buttercream will definitely stick to the brownie, but I think you'll have a really hard time keeping the icing from running down the stick. I used thinned icing for these cupcakes, and they dried smooth.

The tricky part was keeping the thinned icing from dripping off the sides. I think it'd be cool if it worked, but I just think it's going to be a pain. I'd stick with the regular melted chocolate or candy melts.

I had a neighbor, who after trying my cakepops thought she would give them a try. She tried using a chocolate buttercream instead of melted chocolate. BIG failure. She brought me over some to try and they were a mess! Tasty, but not neat at all. Plus, (bless her heart!) she made them the size of a small childs head! LOL Ok, I'm exagerating, but not by much. icon_wink.gif

Crisseyann, that is so funny! I had someone ask me for help after they said they'd made up all of the cake balls, but they kept falling apart off of the sticks. When I went over to help, I found the balls of cake were roughly baseball size. After reshaping them, I think we got about 6 cake pops out of each ball. We laughed about it, and she said that the pictures of cake pops online made them look so much bigger. icon_biggrin.gif
