Rolo Brownie Pops

Last week I told you I would likely share the details of the brownie pops I made for my vintage Hollywood theme party.
I was torn between making cupcakes or brownies.  I really wanted to use cupcake toppers but I also really wanted to use my newly discovered Rolo Brownies recipe.   My problem was solved while I was at the craft supply store and stumbled upon Wilton's Brownie Pops Silicone Mold
I used the mold to make Rolo Brownie Pops and was still able to use my cute toppers.  I only purchased one mold so I spent a good few hours baking the morning of my party.  This would have been incredibly easy and quick if I had purchased more than one pan.  The Rolo Brownies recipe tells you to bake the first layer of brownies, add the rolos and peanut butter chips with another layer of batter, then bake again.  I really didn't have time for so many steps with only one pan so I altered the recipe to make it work with my timeline.  I simply used a brownie mix to make my batter.  I sprayed the pan with cooking spray then filled the molds 2/3 full with batter.
Next I pushed a rolo into each brownie bite.
I topped each bite with 3 peanut butter chips. 
I baked each pan for 30 minutes.  I repeated all the steps 4 times to make 32 brownie bites.  I will definitely be purchasing more silicone molds before I do this again!  But it was all worth it because the brownie bites were delicious and looked adorable with my vintage Hollywood icon toppers!
These would be great with out the peanut butter chips too!
