Today our food contributor Jennifer is here with a scrumptious salty/sweet treat that I know you’re going to love.
Helpful Hint: get yourself a Zoku Quick Pop Maker to whip up all sorts of popsicles (both healthy and not so much) in just 7 minutes – no waiting for them to freeze! We absolutely love ours.
I can feel the days of frozen summer treats coming!
I had the most amazingly delicious salted chocolate popsicle recently and couldn’t wait to try to recreate it at home. It was reminiscent of a fudgesicle but somehow better – more complex, more “adult” in flavor. The version I came up with has all that complexity that makes it perfect for adults but it’s still sure to appeal to your little tasters as well. It is, after all, still a chocolate popsicle.
Adding a little extra salt and just the tiniest dash of cinnamon are the secret ingredients here but, lucky for you, I’m not a very good secret keeper when it comes to recipes.
The mixture to make these popsicles comes together super fast – like 5 minutes fast – and the finished treat is so creamy and richly flavored it’s almost like an ice cream pop.
Why not whip up a batch to celebrate the last days of summer and treat yourself and your wee ones?
Salted Chocolate Popsicles (with a hint of Cinnamon)
makes 6 popsicles
- 2 tbsp. semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/3 c. sugar
- 1 tbsp. cornstarch
- 1 1/2 tbsp. cocoa powder
- 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
- small dash ground cinnamon
- 3/4 c. whole milk
- 1/2 c. heavy cream
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- Put chocolate chips, sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder, salt, and cinnamon in a small saucepan and stir over medium heat until the chocolate chips have melted. Add the milk, cream and vanilla and cook until the mixture has thickened slightly.
- Let cool slightly then pour into popsicle molds. (These are a great budget-friendly option and these round versions are extra fun). I used a measuring cup with a pouring lip to make this easier).
- Place in freezer until solid – several hours or overnight.
- Remove from molds and enjoy!
