Cherry Blossom Ice Pops

Cherry Blossom Ice Pops

Pic is not so pretty (it was hot here today), but trust me, these are GOOD.

Anyone reading my blog for a while now knows I have a fondness for recipes inspired by a certain tasty candy bar.  Continuing in that tradition, this week I whipped up a batch of chocolate ice pops studded with maraschino cherries, chopped peanuts and coconut.  Best part?  They’re dairy free !

This recipe made 6 pops using the mold I have.

In a saucepan over low-medium heat, warm the following:

  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut milk beverage (I used So Delicious brand)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey (or other sweetener of your choosing)

Once the peanut butter and honey have melted and all the ingredients are well blended, remove from heat and stir in:

  • 1/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped maraschino cherries

Pour into molds and freeze over night.
