Holiday Chocolate Pops 🎄❤

Here’s a really SIMPLE and FUN, food-craft to make with the kiddos this weekend!

I adore creating healthier homemade *simple* treats throughout December to share with neighbors and loved ones.

After I made these, I realized that a little fancy sea salt sprinkled on top would be a FABULOUS addition!

So use this idea as your starting point and let your creativity take over!

➡️When shopping for ingredients:

Look for a higher percentage cacao for the chocolate chips, and always read the ingredients.

A high quality dark chocolate bar works great too! I’ll often find a beautiful organic dark chocolate bar on sale, then chop it up to use for things like this.

I like to buy the highest quality I can find when it’s on SALE! I’m always keeping an eye out for a good deal, and will often stock up when a high quality product is on special.

Use any dark chocolate chips of your choice: the higher cacao percentage = more health benefits.

If you’re looking to keep sugars lower; try using Lily’s brand chocolate that is sweetened with stevia.

And finally, if you’re watching your sugars, then look for dried fruits and cranberries without added sugar. I often find natural apple juice sweetened cranberries at health food stores or on Amazon when I search for them.

Makes 12-14 pops

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Organic Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 12-14 bamboo pop skewers
  • Toppings:
  • 1/4 cup raw pecans, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries, roughly chopped
  • 2 Tbsps sunflower seeds
  • 2 Tbsps pumpkin seeds
  • 2 Tbsps golden raisins

Instructions:

Prepare a large sheet pan with a layer of parchment paper. Arrange your popsicle skewers with some space in between, as shown.

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the dark chocolate chips in the microwave. Microwave in 20 seconds increments, stirring after each one.

Alternatively, you can use a double broiler to melt your chocolate on the stovetop.

Spoon discs of melted chocolate over the prepared sheet pan, and onto one end of your arranged pop skewers, as shown in the video/photos.

Sprinkle desired toppings on the chocolate discs.

Lightly press toppings down into the chocolate.

Refrigerate for 15 minutes to allow the chocolate to fully set.

Keep leftovers in a sealed container in your fridge or freezer.

Enjoy!
