Ingredients

Coconut Hojicha Popsicles

Chocolate Ganache (optional)

Instructions

  • Combine all the ingredients for the popsicles in a small pan. Heat over medium heat until the edges of the liquid start to bubble. 
  • Pour the liquid into the popsicle mold. Cover and add the popsicle sticks.
  • Let them freeze for 6 hours or overnight.
  • Make the chocolate ganache. Heat the heavy cream until the liquid starts to bubble on the outside. Pour it into a bowl with the chocolate chips. Mix until a smooth chocolate ganache forms. Drizzle over the popsicles and serve!

Notes

  1. For the chocolate drizzle, you can also use melted chocolate instead of chocolate ganache.
  2. You will probably not use all of the chocolate ganache. I saved mine and added it to my next batch of ice cream.
  3. Use a liquid measuring cup to pour the liquid into the molds – I find that using a liquid measuring cup is the cleanest way to pour your liquid into the molds. When I tried it without the measuring cup, the liquid went all over the place.
  4. How to release stuck popsicles – I’ve had this problem before making popsicles. Sometimes, the popsicles stick to the mold after freezing. The easiest way to get it out is to dip it in hot water for a few seconds, and firmly pull them out. Definitely need some arm strength here!
  5. What to do if your popsicle sticks won't stay submerged completely - I had this problem this time with my popsicle sticks. They kept floating up instead of staying submerged completely in the popsicle molds. So to fix the issue, I covered them with a piece of foil to push the sticks down.
