STEP 1: MAKE AND FILL FLOWER POTS

Start by crumbling your brownies into a bowl. Make sure the mixture is as fine as possible and doesn't have a lot of lumps. (You could also use chocolate cake pop filling instead of brownies)

In a microwaveable bowl, place some orange candy coating and heat on half power. Remove and stir every 30 seconds until completely melted. (Do not overheat the coating or it could burn).

Using a paint brush, dab melted coating inside the mini flower pot chocolate mold, creating a 1/8" shell. Once you have all the pots coated, place the mold in the fridge for 5 minutes.

Remove the mold from the fridge and hold it up to the light. Add additional dabs of coating anywhere you think the pots might need it until they look thoroughly coated.

Fill each pot with mounded brownies, pressing firmly. Once the pots are full, place the mold in the freezer for 15 minutes. Remove the mold and carefully pop the flower pots out.

 

STEP 2: TOP WITH POINSETTIAS 

Dab some melted coating on the back of each flower and place on top of a pot.
