This one is for all of my fellow coffee lovers. I don't know about you, but when the weather heats up, I tend to choose iced coffee and frozen slushy coffee drinks over a hot cuppa most days (unless I wake up particularly early and heat up the water for the French Press before the flames make a difference).
So, along those same lines of thinking, I thought it would be fun to turn a coffee drink into my favorite summer treat on a stick! Sadly, it's not a looker, but once you've tried it, you'll forget all about its plain-Jane appearance. Creamy, cold, and sweet with a punch of caramel-accentuated coffee—tell me you can resist.
Caramel Macchiato Popsicles
Enjoy your favorite coffee drink on a stick with these creamy frozen caramel macchiato popsicles.
Prep Time: 10 minutes + 4 hours to freeze
Cook Time: n/a
Keywords: dessert vegetarian soy-free coffee popsicles frozen summer
Ingredients (yield: 11 (2.5 ounce) popsicle)
- 1 (14 ounce) can CARAMEL sweetened condensed milk
- 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons instant dark coffee or espresso powder
Combine all of the ingredients in the jar of a blender, cover, and blend until smooth and well-combined.
Pour the mixture evenly into your popsicle molds and freeze until solid, about 4 to 6 hours, taking care to add your popsicle sticks at the correct time (some molds add them immediately, but I like to put a sheet of plastic wrap tight on top and freeze for a couple of hours before cutting a slit in the plastic and sliding in the sticks...this helps keep them upright and centered).
After the popsicles are completely frozen, you can dip or drizzle a little bit of caramel on the top of each one and let it drip down a bit. Set on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze for a few minutes, until the caramel is set.
