What is a Cakesicle? (Browniesicle)

We have all heard of cake pops, cakesicles are just cake pops in the form of a popsicle. If you’ve ever struggled to get them to stay on the stick or get them dipped, you will love how easy cakesicles are to make.

Unlike cake pops which are made by dipping the cake and frosting filling into chocolate, a cakesicle is made by coating a popsicle mould in chocolate, then filling the hardened shell with the cake and frosting mixture.

They out super cute too, don’t you think?

This version uses a homemade brownie recipe for the “cake” combined with chocolate frosting to make Browniesicles.

Special Tools Needed to Make Cakesicles

Food Processor – Using a food processor to crumble the brownie is so much faster than doing it by hand, but this is optional of course if speed is not a concern.

Silicone cakesicle mould – You will need a silicone popsicle mould in order to get these cake pops in the right shape.

Food grade Wooden sticks – You can’t have a cakesicle if its not on a stick. Make sure they are food grade!

How to Store Brownie Cake Pop Popsicles

You can make the brownie a day ahead of time, cover and keep at room temperature until ready to make the brownie pops.

You can also freeze the finished brownie cake pops for up to 6 weeks once the coating has fully set. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator when ready to serve.

You can also store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

About the Ingredients for Brownie Cake Pops

Sugar – Just use plain old granulated sugar.

Butter – It is best to use unsalted butter, but if you only have salted on hand, simply omit the additional salt.

Eggs – Make sure your eggs are at room temperature before starting.

Chocolate Chips – I used semi sweet chocolate chips, but you could use dark chocolate chips instead. Avoid milk chocolate as that will make the pops overly sweet.

Cocoa Powder – Make sure you are using unsweetened cocoa powder and not hot chocolate mix. It’s not the same thing.

Salt – Helps to balance all the flavours and make them shine.

Melting Chocolate – You will want pink melting chocolate either by using pink candy melts or by adding a little pink gel food colouring into white melting chocolate. You also need additional white melting chocolate for decorating.

Frosting – Chocolate frosting. You can use your own recipe for buttercream frosting or use store bought. Make sure you add the frosting slowly so that you get the right texture.

Sprinkles – Colourful sprinkles for decorating.
