Today’s pop was inspired by Rachel’s comment on yesterday’s post. I really needed a good pop today after three straight days of duds, and she suggested chocolate pudding with mint and Oreos. It sounds terrific, and I have every intention of making that specific pop someday soon, but in the meantime, I couldn’t stop thinking about Oreos. So I decided to do a twist on Rachel’s idea and throw Oreos into my chocolate ice pop base recipe.
These were every bit as delicious as you’d expect them to be. Because the pops froze so quickly, the cookies stayed really crispy so the popsicle had great texture. And, of course, the combination of the two chocolate flavors was perfect. I’m glad I made three of these (and that the kids are asleep and can’t claim their share).
