Servings: 4-5

Prep Time: 5 minutes, plus 3-4 hours freezing time 

Total Time: 3-4 hours 

 

Ingredients

For the chocolate shell:

  • ½ cup cacao powder 
  • ⅔ cup melted coconut oil 
  • ⅓ - ½ cup maple syrup, depending on desired sweetness  
  • Pinch of salt 

 

Method

  1. Place all popsicle ingredients into a blender in the order listed and blend until smooth. Fill each popsicle mold and insert a popsicle stick into the base of each mold. 
  2. Cover the popsicle tray with a lid or plastic wrap, and place in the freezer for 3-4 hours, or until fully frozen. 
  3. For the chocolate shell, place the cacao powder, coconut oil, ⅓ cup maple syrup, and salt into a medium bowl and whisk until smooth and no lumps remain. Taste, and add remaining maple syrup if desired. Transfer mixture to a tall narrow glass. 
  4. Once frozen, carefully remove each popsicle from its mold and dip into the chocolate shell mixture. Transfer to a piece of parchment paper until the shell has firmed up. Repeat this process until all popsicles have been dipped.  
  5. Enjoy the popsicles right away, or store in the freezer until ready to consume. Leftover shell mixture can be stored in a sealed container at room temperature for upwards of a week. Rewarm if necessary before using.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
