RECIPE:  Dark Chocolate & Peanut Butter Popsicles

I have to admit this recipe for Dark Chocolate & Peanut Butter Popsicles was purely accidental.  Yup, I came up with a recipe of my own.  I know, you smelled the smoke from my brain clear over there, didn’t you?  Shhhh, creative ideas do come my way sometimes.  :P

Here’s how it happened.  Remember my recipe for Chocolate, Peanut Butter & Almond-Covered Banana Popsicles?  Well, after covering half of dozen bananas with that super delicious chocolate & peanut butter combo, I had more of the topping than bananas at the time.

“What to do, what to do?” I thought.  Hmmm…

POPSICLES!  Who doesn’t want popsicles this time of year?  Shoot, I’ll even eat popsicles in the winter!  (Hint, hint – save this recipe in your recipe box.)

Now, I know the capacity of my popsicle mold, which happens to make six of the popsicles you see above.  It holds about a cups worth of liquid, plus miscellaneous ingredients.  So I decided to add one cup of milk in my chocolate and peanut butter mixture and see how that filled up my popsicle molds.  Can we say it filled up the molds almost perfectly?  :D   If your molds are bigger or smaller, just adjust the milk accordingly.  Simple as that.

To say these are rich and delicious is an understatement.  Theses are truly one of my favorite popsicles to date.  After all, chocolate and peanut butter (to me) is just about THE best combo.

Lick, lick, slurp, lick!

Enjoy!  :)

RECIPE: Dark Chocolate & Peanut Butter Popsicles

Yield: Approx. 6

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 3 hours

Total Time: 3 hours, 5 minutes

Ingredients:

1 cup milk
1/4 cup melted dark chocolate chips
1 tablespoon peanut butter (I always use Adam's since it only contains peanuts!)
1 banana

Directions:

Place chocolate chips and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 30-second increments, stirring in between each heating. Be careful not to overheat since this burns the chocolate.

Set aside to cool for a minute or two.

Add 1 cup milk and mix thoroughly.

Pour mixture into each popsicle mold or in small paper cups. Insert sticks and place molds in freezer. Freeze until solid, at least 3 hours.

To release pops, run mold under warm water for 20 to 30 seconds; they should slide right out. (If using paper cups, simply peel cups away and discard.)

As always, enjoy! :)

    I need one of these popsicles to cool me down in this heat! I know you love no-bake recipes as much as I do Laura! I made a chocolate/peanut butter recipe this weekend so it sounds like we’re on the same wavelength. :)

      Hi, Sally! It’s finally “warmed up” here in Seattle. I mean it’s a big whopping 80* today. Haha! I know, pathetic. Yes, these no-bake recipes are helping to keep the house cool because even on slightly warm days, our house heats up. Crazy! Oh, did you share your recipe on your blog? I’m off to go see! I LOVE chocolate and peanut butter! :D

    What do you do with the banana? Is it added with the milk?
