DIY COFFEE POPSICLES
Looking for some Kidd inspired treats to keep cool this summer? Here's 7 popsicles to delight your taste buds.
Espresso Chocolate Chip Cookie Popsicle
There aren't many things more delicious than dipping a chocolate chip cookie in milk; which makes this popsicle #1on my list.
- Chocolate Chip Cookies with Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans
- Whipping Cream
- Powdered Sugar
Let's start by breaking up our espresso chocolate chip cookies into bite sized pieces since whole cookies won't be fitting in our popsicle molds, and set aside. Next let's whip our cream, put 1 cup of heavy whipping cream in a medium bowl and whip until stiff peaks form, adding a little bit of powdered sugar at a time. Once your cream is sufficiently mixed, fold in crushed cookie pieces. Fill each mold about 3/4 of the way up. Then we'll be finish off with a few more pieces of cookie in each popsicle for even distribution! Let freeze over night or until solid. Enjoy cookies and cream anytime of day as a refreshing treat!
Savor this classic sweet treat, with a Kidd twist. What's better than delicious coffee, and your favorite candy? A popsicle version to beat the summer heat!
- Coffee brewed with Kidd's Brazilian Sunset Flavored Coffee Beans
- Roasted Sliced Almonds
In a bowl mix together coffee, coconut cream, cocoa powder, shredded coconut, crushed chocolate, and almonds. Set some of the crushed chocolate, and almonds aside. Mix the remaining chocolate and almonds in a separate bowl, sprinkle a small amount in the bottom of each popsicle mold, fill molds 3/4 full, and sprinkle the rest of the chocolate and almonds on the popsicles. Freeze until solid, enjoy when ever!
Espresso & Cream
Bold and dark espresso contrasted with sweet cream makes delicious and diverse summer treats.
What you'll need:
-Fresh Brewed Espresso
-Heavy Whipping Cream
Lets start by whisking the brown sugar and cocoa powder into our espresso (I suggest Highlander Grogg a barista favorite) while it's still warm, so the sugar dissolves properly. Once thoroughly mixed let it cool in the fridge. While thats cooling lets whip our cream. Put 1 cup of heavy whipping cream in a medium bowl and whip until stiff peaks form, adding a little bit of powdered sugar at a time. Once your cream is sufficiently mixed, it's time to break out those popsicle molds. Fill molds 1/8 of the way with the now cool espresso. Spoon 2 tablespoons of whipped cream, freeze for 30 min, add more espresso, and whip cream creating your desired number of layers, freezing after every whip cream layer. Once you've filled your popsicle molds, freeze at least 4 more hours or until solid. Enjoy for a caffeinating and refreshing treat.
Strawberries & Cream
Black Forest Cake Popsicle
A favorite year round here's a healthier popsicle featuring the classic flavors of dark chocolate and black cherries.
-Dark Chocolate Chips
-Black Cherries (pitted and diced)
-Finely Ground Coffee Beans
To get the cool color contrast for these popsicles were going have to yogurt mixtures. For the first one blend you cherries, some dark chocolate, and half your yogurt together. For the second one, fold dark chocolate and 2 tablespoons of finely ground coffee grounds (I recommend Black Forest Cake Coffee Beans) into yogurt. Fill your popsicle molds 1/4 of the way with the black cherry yogurt mixture, then fill them until they're 3/4 full with the chocolate and coffee yogurt mixture. Top with remaining cherry mixture and freeze until solid.
