Creamy coconut peanut butter popsicles dipped in luscious chocolate, sprinkled with shredded coconut and chopped peanuts, and topped with a generous drizzle of peanut butter glaze. Coconuts and peanuts both have “nut” in their name, but neither are actual nuts. Coconuts are botanically drupes, better known as stone fruits. And peanuts belong to the legume family. They are closer in relation to beans and peas rather than tree nuts like walnuts and hazelnuts. I just wanted to share that little tidbit. Hey, you never know… it might be the winning answer on a game show. Chocolate Peanut Butter Popsicles Summer is in full swing! Get ready for a frozen treat overload these upcoming weeks! Today I bring you these decadent and delicious coconut peanut butter popsicles. I created this recipe to participate in Peanut Butter & Co.’s “Pin-a-Pop” summer contest . Participants were challenged to whip up a summer popsicle featuring peanut butter. Nothing is more summer to me than coconut. These coconut peanut butter popsicles are dairy-free! I used coconut milk in place of milk or cream to create the base of these treats. Coconut milk not only tastes great, it also is responsible for the creamy and luscious texture of the pops. Magic Chocolate Shell Chocolate dipping can be messy and frustrating. I find the best way to dip ice cream bars/strawberries/ice cream cones/etc. is by pouring the melted chocolate in a tall glass. With less surface area you get more dipping depth. (Does that make sense?) Working with melted chocolate can be a bit tricky. There are numerous things to worry about: is the chocolate in temper, has the chocolate seized up and become gritty, is the chocolate overheated? I’ve got the perfect quick-fix for making your own “magic” chocolate shell. Gently melt the chocolate with coconut oil until the mixture is smooth. Dip anything cold into the chocolate and within seconds it will magically set up. It’s great! Especially because it leaves you with a nice even coat of chocolate. Plus, you can dip the bars over and over again if you want a thicker shell. Just remember to work quick when it comes to adding your toppings. The chocolate sets up really fast!
