Step 4: Prepare your Styrofoam or Cardboard Holder

Prepare your Styrofoam or cardboard holder. I had this handy cardboard packing from my husband's drum set that worked out well for this project. I just made holes in the top layer, then took it off and laid it on the second and marked where the holes would be so it lined up. Then I made the holes in the second layer. I used a pen to make and mark the holes. Use a pen you don't care about and is pretty normal (no fancy pens here) and sturdy, though mine still worked when I was done.

Then I took one of my cookie sticks and used it to make sure they would go all the way through the top hole and at least partially into the second. They will be heavy, brownies are dense already, and you want them to stay standing and not hit each other.

If you are using Styrofoam, use the cookie sticks to start the holes. The sticks are fatter so they probably won't just go in the styrofoam and you don't want to be struggling with it later when you have a heavy, wet brownie pop to deal with.
Chocolate is my best friend and these look so delicious! The one thing I have never tried is the candy melts. Are they used to harden the chocolate or what? Do they have a flavor of any sort?
Candy melts are the chocolate. They come in a pack and look like a bunch of chocolate candies, like Hershey's kisses. You melt them and then they harden when they cool. I have only seen them in chocolate, chocolate mint, and vanilla flavoring. This is actually my first time using them, but they are really easy to use as long as you don't burn them :)
oh OK I see, it looked like they were white but that was the packaging. Do they taste good at all? I have used the magic shell but to tell you the truth it does not appeal to me that much. It almost taste oily to me. Thanks for your reply.<br>Sunshiine
Oh yeah, taste just like chocolate! That's all they are really. I don't think it was oily.
Na its not oily. I have seen some pink ones at the store, but not sure if there like strawberry. <br>
Mmmmmmm I love how you took the cake pop ideas and made it brownies! Nothing can beat brownies!
PLUS brownies form easier than cake. Trust me, I just made cake pops. XD
I wish I saw these the other day! I just made something pretty similar as part of my Christmas cookies batch! I'll have to send you what I made. Great minds think alike :)
Did you use caramel too? I just love chocolate and caramel :)
I'm not a big caramel person, so I haven't tried that, but I LOVE using mint!! It always surprises people when I add a little mint :)
Yum! These wouldn't last very long in my house. <br><br>Love that you added your blooper's. Somebody should create a page just for instructables gone wrong. I have a couple myself. :)
Me too!
I agree, bloopers are fun, and I don't want to act like I just whipped these up. It took experimenting, and failure, and having to eat a lot of brownie goo to get it right!
They look delicious. I would like to eat one with a glass of milk.
I'll make them for you the next time I am home.
