Bridal Shower

I made these Ghiradelli Chocolate Brownie Balls on a stick for R's Bridal shower. 
Directions:
Bake off a pan of brownies. ( added fresh blueberries into the brownie batter to give it a tart taste, offsetting the sweetness of the brownies)
Cool down to room temperature and leave it in the refrigerator for several hours.
Cut 2 -3 inches out and roll them into balls. Wear plastic gloves as you roll them.
Cover the balls in plastic wrap and freeze it for several hours.
Remove from freezer, push through a white stick into the middle of the ball. 
Dip them into melted chocolate.
 Coat with any topping, in this case, I use Health bars. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Ideas for other variations: add other items into the brownie mix- chopped walnuts.almonds, pecans, berries, etc.
Coat the balls with colored sprinkles to match the holiday theme. For example, pink for Valentine's day, Christmas color sparkles, etc..
Wedding favor- Heart-shaped measuring spoons with a sugar cookie recipe.
The usual bridal shower game- dressing girls up up in "brides" dress.
Congratulations to R, and all the other engaged people. Happy for you! :)
