Prepare brownie mix according to package directions. Preheat cake pop maker‡according to manufacturer’s instructions. Bake cake pops according to manufacturer’s instructions. Remove from cake pop maker, and let cool completely. Insert 1 lollipop stick into each brownie pop; set aside.
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt candy coating according to package directions. Carefully dip each cake pop into candy coating, allowing excess to drip off. Before each cake pop dries completely, place 2 chocolate morsels for ears on each owl, pressing gently to adhere. Secure cake pop into florist foam or a cake pop stand to dry. Once dry, dip once more to coat completely. Using tweezers, place chocolate-covered sunflower seeds, candy eyeballs, and sprinkles to decorate, if desired. Let dry completely.
