Chocolate Covered Coconut Popsicles
What? It's October? Well, it's still in the mid to higher 80s here and obviously I have not been able to let go of summer…
When I think about coconut popsicles, I think of growing up in Southern California and having men pushing popsicle carts through our neighborhood all the time…they had coconut ones, mango ones and even pina colada. I don't remember the ice cream trucks all that well back then but I remember the popsicle carts.
And then when we moved to Florida, my absolute favorite thing was to get hand-dipped ice cream bars at Haagen-Dazs in the mall. My sister would get them dipped in dark chocolate and then dipped in chocolate cookie crumbs while I always got them dipped in milk chocolate and sprinkles!
Okay I did it again, I devoured the entire popsicle while taking these pictures.
After freezing the Zoku pop maker for 24 hours, put in your popsicle sticks and get ready.
Pour in the popsicle mixture up to the fill line.
Allow the mixture to freeze – it only takes 7-10 minutes!
And then dip it in the chocolate station…
And then sprinkles or whatever your favorite toppings are!
