You could make the brownie Holi-pops filling or the brownie ball ahead of time and even freeze the ball. Then dip the pops into the chocolate coating 1 to 3 days ahead of when you will be serving them.
Can anyone please tell me how long these could sit around. I want to make them for a Sweet 16, but I'm wondering when they should be made. Please, thank you.
