Dark Chocolate Covered Kiwi Pops
DESSERT, DIET, ice cream + ice pops
American, gluten free, kids
medium to large kiwis
these are the ones I used
Line a 1/4 baking pan (or plate) with parchment paper and set aside.
Trim each end off of your kiwis and carefully peel them with a potato peeler. Slice into 1/2 inch rounds (you will get 3-4 slices depending on the size of your kiwi)
Gently slide one popsicle stick onto each slice of kiwi, making sure to be at least halfway up the kiwi. Place on baking sheet and freeze for a minimum of four hours or until frozen through.
When you are ready to make your pops, melt your chocolate in the microwave or a double boiler and gently stir in the coconut oil until it has melted in.
Dip your kiwi into the chocolate, letting the excess chocolate drip off (you will see that it only tales about 20 seconds for the chocolate to set up). Repeat with all the kiwi slices.
You can either eat your dark chocolate covered kiwi right way or place it back into the freezer until you are ready to enjoy!
*Note: you will only use about 4 ounces of the chocolate, so be sure to save the rest for dipping almonds, walnuts, dried fruits, fresh fruits, etc.
