It’s officially Summer time and you will be finding plenty of fresh frozen treats around here in the upcoming months here and elsewhere (I will tell you all about that soon). I always have remembered making homemade Popsicles at home with my mammaw and I just thought it was the most awesome thing ever. Now as a mother I wanted to share that same experience with my son and let me tell you he loves it just as much as I did. I let him help me create the perfect recipe from start to finish. With this chocolate treat we decided to make our favorite winter time cocoa and freeze it so we could have the taste we love all year around.
1/2 cup cream
1 cup milk
50 grams chopped chocolate
1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. In a saucepan on medium heat add cream milk, chocolate, cocoa powder and vanilla, stirring frequently. Once chocolate has melted, turn heat to low and continue stirring occasionally for 5 minutes.
2. Remove from heat and allow cooling to room temperature.
3. Carefully pour mixture into Popsicle molds, place in freezer and allow freezing overnight.
Yields: 6 (depending on your molds)
