They are super easy to make and so festive on your party table.

The holidays give me an excuse to cook up a batch or two of my favorite treats.  I know that we’ll have guests coming and going, so I won’t have to deal with sweet treats calling my name (and my hips) every second of the day.

I recently made some brownie pops in fun Christmas shapes.  I made them by cooking a huge pan of fudge brownies and then used a sharp cookie cutter to cut them into festive shapes.  The brownie pops turned out great and our party guests loved them, but I had a big bowl of brownie “scraps” left over.  I didn’t want to throw them away.  I didn’t trust myself to have them sitting on the counter while I decided what to do with them.  (My stomach doesn’t care if it’s pretty…only if it’s tasty, and brownie scraps fit that bill very nicely!)

Lucky for me, brownie scraps also make great Fudge Brownie Truffles.

(This post contains affiliate links for your cooking experience.) To make these Fudge Brownie Truffles you will need the following ingredients:


If you are starting with a whole pan of brownies and not left over bits, trim the hard edges from the brownies. They won’t crumble well and won’t form into balls very easily.  Discard the edges. (yeah right….) Then take all the left over brownie bits, fluff them so that they form a sort of crumb mixture. Be sure not to over bake the brownies and don’t substitute applesauce for oil.  The brownies need to be very fudgy to stick together when you make the balls.Cooked and trimmed brownies

Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out about a tablespoon or so of the brownie mixture.  Roll it into balls. (I inserted a cake pop stick into each ball to make dipping easier later but if you have a candy dipping set, you won’t need to do this.  I removed my sticks and use mini muffins cups to serve mine, but you could also keep the cake pop stick in and serve them this way if you wish.)Balls of brownie mixture

The brownie balls are easier to dip if they are quite hard, so I stuck them into the freezer for a couple of hours.

Mix each of your chocolate morsels with about a teaspoon of milk and microwave for about 1 minute until the chocolate is melted and very smooth and silky.  I did my colors one at a time, since the chocolate firms up quickly.  Hold the cake pop stick and dip the brownie ball into the melted chocolate. Add a few holiday sprinkles and allow the truffle chocolate to set.Melted chocolate for fudge brownie truffles
