Chocolate Drizzled Coconut Popsicles with Almonds
These homemade coconut popsicles are EASY! They’re drizzled with fast-setting dark chocolate and almonds and taste just like a frozen Almond Joy bar.
- 1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
- 1.5 cup lite coconut milk
- 1 cup full-fat coconut milk
- 3 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup chopped dark chocolate
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds, chopped
Add coconut flakes to the bowl of a food processor and pour in one can's worth of coconut milk (usually around 13.5 oz). Pulse until the coconut flakes are broken up into smaller pieces.
Add coconut flake/coconut milk mixture to a bowl and add remaining coconut milks and sugar. Whisk to combine evenly.
Pour popsicle mixture even into popsicle molds and place in handles. Freeze for 3 hours or so, or until completely frozen through.
Once the popsicles are frozen and ready to serve, add chopped dark chocolate and coconut oil to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 20-second increments until mixture is smooth, stirring after each increment. Transfer melted chocolate/coconut oil mixture to a small plastic bag and snip one of the corners off. Pipe melted chocolate over popsicles and quickly sprinkle chopped almonds over the drizzle. Wait 10-15 seconds for the chocolate to harden, and enjoy.
Prep time includes 3 hours for the popsicles to freeze, but how long it takes may vary.
To loosen the popsicles from their molds, run them under warm water until they loosen enough to slide the popsicles out. Turn the popsicles often under the water so all sides can loosen evenly.
If your popsicle molds don't have the snap on handles like mine, place the popsicles in the freezer without the sticks. Wait an hour or so for the coconut milk mixture to begin to freeze and become slushy, when a popsicle stick inserted in the center of each pop will stand up on its own. Then freeze entirely.
My popsicle molds hold 4 oz each, so the quantity of the coconut milk mixture was 24 oz in total. Feel free to increase/decrease the quantity of ingredients if your popsicle molds hold more/less than 24 oz.
