Brownie Pops are fun, playful candies that combine two favorite tastes into one great candy. Brownies and chocolate frosting are mixed and formed into balls that are placed on sticks and dipped in chocolate. These “pops” taste like decadent fudgy brownies and make perfect party food or favors.

3. Cheesecake Pops

Cheesecake Pops are delicious balls of real cheesecake, covered in bright candy coating and served on a lollipop stick. You can use any flavor of baked cheesecake you like, and can substitute white or milk chocolate for the dark chocolate coating. These cheesecake pops can be playful or elegant, but they’re always delicious.

4. Peanut Butter and Jelly Pops

Cake pops are a bit of a misnomer for this candy--they could more accurately be called "doughnut pops"! Doughnut holes are used in place of cake, so these candies come together in a snap. They have a surprise filling of peanut butter and jelly inside, but you can experiment with using frosting or Nutella instead.

5. Love Pops
