Baking Chez Moi: Esquimaux Pops for Grown-Ups

I have a love of right-from-the-box popsicles and icy treats.  It was nice to make a fudgy homemade version for a change.DSC_0663.jpgLuckily I already had some molds and the ingredients were pretty simple.DSC_0665.jpgDSC_0670.jpg

DSC_0672.jpgDSC_0675.jpgDSC_0680.jpgThis recipe called for a lot of different bowls and mixing but was overall pretty simple.  Scott has been baking lately so I had him help me out with this one so he could practice folding.  Considering the final result I think he did a pretty great job.  We used the food processor to chop the chocolate.

DSC_0683.jpgFilling the molds was easy and mine made quite a few pops since they were rather small.

DSC_0808.jpgDSC_0810.jpgThe pops were smooth, almost reminiscent of a pudding pop with the chocolate chips adding contrast.  Our pops didn’t have a strong liquor flavor. Maybe because coffee is such a nice complement to the dark chocolate it ended up being more of an undertone.  Nice little treat for the summer.

  1. Yours turned out great… and in one piece! Lucky! Glad that you enjoyed it as much as I did (even if I had to scoop it from the mold to a bowl!
