This was a big experiment.  That’s probably what I like most about cooking is that you can get ideas and then try them out with very little risk.  I decided to make these after getting such rave reviews on the cake pops I made at Halloween.  I figured I could come up with a creative way to

I hadn’t ever seen this done until I stayed at my girlfriend Luanne’s house over the holiday’s. Not only was this delicious, and nutritious but it was so much fun to make. All of us got our own ziplock bag and after we had put our name on it, Luanne showed us how to make

Like in my previous posts on Cake Pops, I love making these for special occasions but there’s nothing I can really say that is healthy about them.  And today’s version is no exception.  I made these with brownies, frosting and covered them in milk chocolate.  My grandson, Eric, was turning 2 and he loves chocolate.  So
