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.
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.
