Ice Cream just happens to be my favorite food. I love all kinds of ice cream, but it needs to have great creamy texture and I love crunchy chunks folded inside. Iced Mochas are very popular, but these calories ridden frappes are not my thing. I love the flavors of coffee and chocolate, so I thought creating a luscious batch of yogurt pops with similar flavors, would make an incredible treat.
Greek Yogurt is a great base for these Mocha Crunch Yogurt Pops because it is creamy thick and delicious. Creating the mocha part is quite simple – add a little chocolate syrup and a cup of brewed coffee and stir. I added a little crushed Heath Bar for some crunchy nuggets and additional toffee goodness. Sounds pretty good huh?
These pops can be ready to serve within a few hours and make great treats for moms after a long hard day, but are nice to serve to teens who are spending wads of money down at the local Starbucks. These pops keep in the freezer for at least a month.
2 cups 2% Greek yogurt
1/3 cup chocolate syrup
1 cup brewed coffee, room temperature
2 Heath Bars or 1/2 cup toffee bits
3 ounce paper cups
6 Popsicle sticks
(Makes 6 Pops)
1. In a large bowl, add the yogurt, chocolate syrup and coffee, whisk until smooth. Chop up the Health bars and add 1 teaspoon to each cup.
2. Fold in the rest of the Health Bar to the yogurt mixture. Fill each cup with the yogurt mixture, about 3/4 full.
3. Cut foil into 5-inch squares and cover each cup. Place a stick into the center of each cup and freeze for at least 3 hours.
4. To unmold – remove the foil and tear the cup away from the pop. Enjoy!
