Chocolate-Dipped

Put ice cream into molds, freeze, and then decorate your frozen snack with melted chocolate and sprinkles.

Chocolate-Dipped
Servings: 8

Ingredients

  • 2 cups vanilla or chocolate ice cream
  • 2 cups chopped chocolate (any kind)
  • 1/2 cup assorted toppings, such as sprinkles, toffee bits, and coconut

Make It

1. Cut the tops off eight 7-ounce paper cups to make a mold that's an inch deep. Pack the ice cream into the molds. Use the tip of a knife to make a slit in the side of each mold and insert wooden sticks. Cover and freeze until firm, about 3 hours.

2. Meanwhile, melt chocolate over low heat in a small saucepan. Allow to cool slightly. Remove pops from molds and spoon chocolate on evenly. Sprinkle with your favorite topping. Serve immediately or insert sticks into a piece of Styrofoam and freeze until ready to eat. Wrap in plastic for longer storage.
