We made the chocolate pops at home in our kitchen using everything that was included in the kits: white and dark chocolate for the outside of the pops, two types of brigadeiro (Brazilian truffle filling) one in dark chocolate and the other pumpkin spice; popsicle sticks; and fun toppings including bright sprinkles, googly eyes and mini marshmallows.
We heated and tempered the chocolate before filling the popsicle mold shell, which is included in the kit. The kids decided to make two vanilla, one chocolate, and one marble pop.
We decorated them with the toppings and placed the pops in the freezer for 30 minutes to set. Then they were ready to eat.
This was a fun and tasty activity for the kids and it wasn’t very messy. A win-win! Order the pops by October 26 so you can make them for Halloween.
Healthified sweets are the ticket to indulging your sweet tooth without the guilt this holiday season. Whether you serve them after a holiday dinner or nibble on them as a yummy snack, these recipes look great, taste great and can be made without a lot of fuss.
Chocolates are my favorite treat. They’re a great dessert, especially for parties and events, like weddings.
Recently Fran’s Chocolates sent me their famous salted caramels. These Gray and Smoked Salt Caramels are available in dark and milk chocolate, paired with soft buttery caramel and topped with gray and smoked sea salts.
The caramels look pretty and taste delicious!
An added bonus? The presentation – box and bow – can be color coordinated.
A tasty and eye-catching option for wedding favors.
