A pop a day keeps boredom away!

Day 60 — S’mores Ice Pops

My husband suggested a few days ago that I make a s’mores pop:

Milk, cream, Ovaltine, marshmallows, graham crackers

For this pop, I went with the basic chocolate ice pop recipe. Rather than try to mix in the marshmallows, I cut them in half and used a knife to stick the pieces directly to the sides of the Zoku’s molds. I had to dot a little of the base onto each one to make them stay.

I have a confession — although my ingredient shot shows graham crackers, I actually used girl scout cookies in these pops because it turned out that my graham crackers had gone stale. I crushed them into large-ish pieces rather than crumbs, because I wanted them really to stand out. I layered them in as I poured the base.

These pops turned out really cute. They tasted good, too. I don’t normally like marshmallow unless they’re either gluing rice krispies together or are well toasted, but they turn out nice in the Zoku. They become a lot less mushy when they freeze.

Overall, this pop was a hit. Well worth a try.
