I think personally that these Cocoa Nuttie Yogurt Pops should be for grown ups only, but that is just my personal opinion. If you've ever had chocolate cheesecake and loved it, then you will appreciate these. They are made with pure Greek God Yogurt and I couldn't eat more than one. Very rich and will take care of any chocolate craving and sweet tooth. My Editor in Chief from Natural Family Today Magazine started this craze earlier this summer by posting a recipe for Strawberry Yogurt Pops and it has opened a whole new world for my entire household. Just check under the recipe section.
They are quite simple to make and cute to boot. I just used simple Dixie Cups and Popsicle sticks.Mixed it up and stuck them on a tray in the freezer. This recipe made one dozen tasty treats.
1 - 24 oz. carton of Plain or Honey Greek God Yogurt
1 - 10 oz. bag of Ghirardelli semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 tsp. raw organic sugar (optional)
crushed walnut or pecan pieces
In small saucepan on medium to low heat slowly melt the chocolate chips. Stir frequently so they don't stick to the pan. In a large bowl put in the entire carton of Greek God Yogurt, add the vanilla and sugar. With a rubber spatula add the melted chocolate. Beat with hand mixer until well blended.
Put a small amount of crushed nuts in the bottom of each Dixie cup. Spoon in the yogurt mixture. Sprinkle on a bit of the crushed nuts on top of each filled cup and gently press it on. Place your stick in the middle of each cup. Set your tray in the freezer and wait for them to set. The paper peels off easily, but I did take sizzors and cut a tiny slit at the top of the cup and then peeled it off.
Happy Gardening and Happy Yogurt Blissfulness!
