Posted in : DESSERT on by : Admin

Creamy almond and coconut flavored frozen popsicles coated in chocolate and sprinkled with chopped with crunchy toasted almonds and shredded coconut flakes!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons heavy cream, divided
  • 1 cup milk (I used fat free half and half)
  • 1 small (3.4 oz) package instant coconut cream pudding mix (such as the [url:1]this one[/url])
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or equivalent amount of brick-style almond bark)
  • optional: shredded coconut flakes and chopped almonds (such as Diamond of California almonds)
  • Instructions

  • In a medium bowl whisk together the 1 cup of heavy cream, milk, pudding mix, and almond extract. Pour mixture into popsicle molds. Freeze for 4 hours or overnight.
  • Line a small baking sheet (something that will fit in the freezer) with nonstick foil, set aside.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl combine chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons heavy cream. Microwave on half power for 2 minutes. Stir, then return to microwave on half power for 20 seconds at a time stirring after each until smooth.
  • Run the popsicle molds under warm running water to loosen the popsicles. Dip popsicles in melted chocolate, then immediately sprinkle with shredded coconut flakes and/or chopped almonds. Place on prepared foil-lined baking sheet and return to freezer for about 5 minutes or until chocolate cools. Store wrapped individually in plastic wrap in the freezer.
