Recipe: Chocolate Ice Pops
This recipe could not be easier.. throw it all in a pan, heat it to a boil and freeze. The chocolate orange lollies can be made beforehand so are always stashed away for that hot summer day... fantastic for the kids (and great for adults too!!!).
- 25 g dark chocolate
- 3 tbsp caster sugar
- 1 tbsp corn flour
- 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 300 ml milk
- 1 knob butter
- 1 orange, zested
- 1 handful 100's and 1000's
Simmer The Chocolate Mix
Measure all of the ingredients except the 100s and 1000s into a small saucepan and whisk together.
Gently heat up, stirring occasionally, until simmering.
Simmer for 2 minutes until thickens.
Freeze The Mix
Divide into 6 ice lolly moulds (or use ice cube trays) and put into the freezer.
Insert wooden lolly sticks into the centre of each lolly after an hour in the freezer, when they have begun to freeze, so that it stands up straight.
Freeze for several hours.
Roll In Toppings
Lay the 100’s and 1000’s on another.
Dunk the mould in warm water to ease out the lollies and while still slight wet around the edges roll them in either nuts or 100’s and 1000’s to stick.
Refreeze Or Serve!
Return them to a tray in the freezer until you want to serve them.
Makes 16 ice cube sized lollies
