  • 1-1/2 cups coconut cream
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla exract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • For the ice cream pops: In a blender, combine all the of the ice cream pop ingredients. Blend on medium speed for about 1 minute. The mixture will thin out considerably.
  • Spoon into popsicle molds and place popsicle sticks or the equivalent in the pops.
  • Freeze until very solid, preferably overnight.
  • For the coating: To a microwave-safe bowl, add the chocolate chips (or chopped dark chocolate, if you prefer) and coconut oil. Microwave on HIGH in 30-second bursts , stirring well in between. Try to microwave the chocolate the least amount of time possible; two 30-second bursts should be all you need. Make sure the chocolate is only slightly warm before coating the ice cream pops.
  • Carefully remove the ice cream pops from the molds by briefly running hot water over the mold. Use a spoon to drizzle and spread the chocolate coating over the pop.
  • Immediately place each coated ice cream bar on a parchment-paper lined baking sheet in the freezer.
  • When the coating is hard, consume immediately or store in an airtight container in the freezer!
