Consider making Brussels sprouts cake pops as a fun and delicious to eat treat idea!

White and milk chocolate dipped Brussels sprouts are my new favorite dessert vegetable and I know you’re gonna love these too. What could be better than a chocolate-dipped tender Brussels sprout to nosh on?!

Plus, I personally love that these are so much easier and healthier to make than actual homemade cake pops. This simple recipe only requires a few easy ingredients and there’s no rolling cake into a ball, or worrying if they’ll roll off the stick. If you love easy recipes, this is definitely one to try.

Tips for making the best Brussels Sprouts Cake Pops:

  • Boiling the Brussels sprouts is an optional step, but tastes so much better in my opinion, plus having them a bit tender makes it much easier to place them on the cake pop sticks!
  • Use candy melts! I actually tried melted white chocolate at first and it all came sliding right off sadly. The candy melts seemed to set up quickly and stayed on much better. I used a mix of chocolate and white chocolate candy melts and love the results!
  • You’ll need a way for the Brussels sprout cake pops to stay upright, so I poked holes in a box to set the sticks in and it worked well. Floral foam is also a great option. They will need a little time to set up in the fridge, so make sure to pre-plan for that.

My family LOVED this easy-to-make dessert vegetable!

I made these as a special birthday treat for one of my kids and they were a big hit! The tender, savory Brussels sprouts tasted great with the sweet flavor of the chocolate and sprinkles. Don’t miss out on this delicious idea, we gave it 5/5 stars!

    I’ve never actually had a brussel sprout, and think this recipe might actually be worth a try. Chocolate is on this planet for a reason! LOL.

    I’m glad I found this because my 5 year pulls was distraught that I forgot to bring home the chocolate covered brussel sprout that she got at school today! She asked (after wailing Abbott how she couldn’t have hers), “Can we make some with our frozen brussel sprouts?” ๐Ÿ˜‚
