These Salted Caramel Mocha Popsicles are proof you can enjoy your favorite morning beverage any time of day. A mocha popsicle flavored with caramel and chocolate syrups, caramel creamer and whipped topping.
It’s officially Summer which means my love of frozen treats – and creating new ones! – is in full effect. First, it was my Red, White and Blue Raspberry and Cream Popsicles. And then, while on my super early morning walk with our puppy, Truman, a new idea came to me. That is, after I dodged the sprinklers coming to life in a neighbor’s yard right as I walked by. Doesn’t everyone water their lawn before six each morning?
I’m definitely not what you would call a coffee person. I tried drinking it for a semester in college but I was putting so much stuff in it to make it drinkable that it pretty much defeated the purpose. Then a year ago while leaving a favorite drink establishment, one of the employees offered me a caramel mocha that was a duplicate for an already filled order. I took it to be polite figuring that once I walked out, I could pawn it off on my coffee loving husband to drink.
But the whipped cream cloud on top drizzled with caramel seduced me into taking a sip. And I was a goner. It turns out that I’m totally fine with mochas as mocha = chocolate!
- 6-1/4 cups brewed coffee
- ¾ cup creamer
- ¼ cup milk
- ¾ cup whipped topping
- ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
- chocolate syrup
- caramel syrup
- In a large mixing bowl with spout, stir together all ingredients.
- Drizzle chocolate and caramel syrups around edges of popsicle molds.
- Fill each popsicle mold with coffee mixture and insert popsicle sticks.
- Freeze for several hours or overnight.
With the weather becoming warm, I’ve been treating myself to several iced mochas but I wanted something that I could enjoy at home. These popsicles are the answer! A mocha popsicle flavored with caramel and chocolate syrups, caramel creamer and whipped topping. Even better? One recipe makes enough popsicles to create a stash in my freezer, ready at a moments notice.
