TWD - Esquimaux Pops for Grown-Ups
This month's second Tuesday with Dorie recipe is Esquimaux Pops for Grown-Ups. These are frozen chocolate mousse iceblocks studded with chocolate chunks, and they are delicious:
They were simple to make, and I had all of the ingredients in the house. Even better, I was able to use the Tupperware iceblock moulds that I bought at a food show on 26 August 2007 (according to the receipt in the bag) and had never used before. It only took me 9 years, but I used them!
These pops are for "grown-ups" because they contain liqueur. I used creme de cassis, one of Dorie's suggestions, because I happened to have it on hand. I also bought it years ago because I saw some Kir Royale cupcakes online and was fascinated by them because I had never heard of a Kir Royale. I am yet to make the Kir Royale cupcakes!
I made a half recipe and got 4 pops out of it. I enjoyed them more than I thought I would - I was never a fan of chocolate icecream, but these little chocolate mousse pops are good.
