popsicle week :: choffee-sicle



  Yesterday I was having a hard time deciding what type of popsicle to make.  I knew I wanted to make a coffee flavored pop, but a bit more rich than the typical coffee ice.  And I wanted chocolate. Just because.  I started with a Vietnamese coffee type base and added cocoa, and vanilla.  The result is a popsicle that is both refreshing and rich enough to have for dessert. Or breakfast, in my case. 

 Enjoy!

Choffee-sicles

1 1/2 cups brewed coffee (good stuff. don't skimp) // 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk // 1 tablespoon good quality cocoa  powder // 1 teaspoon vanilla // pinch of salt 


 Combine ingredients together in a small sauce pan.  Whisk together over low heat.  Bring to a simmer and continue whisking until cocoa powder is dissolved and the mixture is well combined.  Take off heat and cool.
 Pour into popsicle mold.  Freeze for 3-5 hours.  To unmold, let come up to room temp for 5 minutes or run mold under hot water for a few seconds.
