Summer is officially on! And it’s hot out there, to say the least. The heat might be great when you’re swimming in the pool or relaxing at the beach. But, when you’re clothes are soaked from sweat, just from walking from the car to the house door, it’s time for some relief.
My solution? Chill out with a chocolate gourmet popsicle.
If you’ve never made homemade pops, be prepared to get addicted fast. You can use any base for the liquid, which really comes in handy when you want a healthy option, or you want to make an adult cocktail version. Then, add your choice of ingredients. Fresh fruits, nuts, coconut, chocolate chips, cookies, sprinkles… the flavor combinations are endless.
I’ve gathered a collection of scrumptious frozen Popsicle recipes to get you started. Banoffee Pie, Strawberry White Chocolate, Taramisu, and the always popular, Chunky Monkey! What are your favorite Popsicle flavors?
Playing it Cool!
Save those sticks! Once you have an ample supply of Popsicle sticks, why not recycle them into summer fun? You can find directions for this exploding chain reaction here.
