Chocolate Nut Butter Cup Popsicles

I have always loved fudge popsicles, they are simply delicious. However, the popsicles of my childhood are full of things I would rather not have added to my diet. Fudge popsicles can easily be made at home with a can of coconut milk, some good quality high-fat cocoa powder, a pinch of salt and some honey (or agave). Super simple and super delicious. However, a chocolate popsicle can be made so much better with the addition of nut butter. Whether it be almond, peanut, cashew, or hazelnut.

These popsicles are perfect, a little sweet, a little salty a lot of delicious chocolate. The creamy nut butter is a perfect match for the chocolate ice cream, its like a frozen nut buttercup. Who wouldn’t like that?

We’ve made these a few times, I prefer to have them with almond butter my husband loves the with peanut butter. Hazelnut butter is something I’ve been meaning to try out, hazelnut and chocolate is a match made in heaven. Although the nut butter makes this popsicle next level, the cocoa powder you use is also very important.

Raw cacao is great and I do like to use it from time to time, but high-fat cocoa powder, We like to use a superior red cocoa powder that contains between 22-24% coconut butter. The cocoa smells like brownie mix, its extra creamy and unlike raw cacao, it provides extra creamy texture for the popsicle.

For a little extra chocolate goodness, you can drizzle a little extra chocolate on top. I melted some Enjoy Life chocolate chips and drizzled it over top, it solidified and gave a wonderful snap! Hope you can enjoy these this summer!
