Are you ready?!
That intro too much?
Chant those words to any elementary school-aged kid and they’ll fill you in. See also this video. Don’t punch me afterward.
Buuuut how about a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Popsicle?! How do we feel about THESE?!!!
The early 90s just came flooding back to my memory. That season of life when my middle school peers and I would save up our allowances to buy weird little hunks of frozen cookie dough sold by the student-run school store after class was out for the day. They were such delightfully sinful little treats that you could indulge on without your parents’ knowledge before you hopped on the school bus for home.
That’s right Mom and Dad. I ate frozen cookie dough at school. Regularly. The things you learn about your kids later when they are adults. And have a blog.
At least it was only frozen cookie dough…because middle school. Just mentioning that time period of our youth prompts us all to nod silently and look at each other with sympathetic, understanding eyes.
Praise the Lord that awkward time in life and in our bodies was short lived. And that my hair no longer has a DIY perm with bangs that look like an ocean wave.
But I’m still eating frozen cookie dough. In popsicle form. And they are probably a lot healthier than the frozen chocolate chip studded pucks I ate in middle school. Unlike that frozen dough, these tasty popsicles don’t have raw egg in them.
In all honesty, no one really knew for sure if the frozen dough served at school did have raw egg. It seems unlikely. That would have been a salmonella lawsuit waiting to happen. But then again, it was the early 90s. The era when it was cool to wear head-to-toe neon or those Hypercolor T-shirts that made you pray that they wouldn’t change colors in your armpits first. Schools serving cookie dough with raw egg was not exactly on our radar back then.
So who’s ready for a popsicle?! That tastes like cookie dough?! Me and Me! And You!
And guess what?!
Are you ready?!
For what?! …juuust kidding (don’t hate me)
When we’ve had our fill of chocolate chip cookie dough popsicles (which might be NEVER), we have 74 other popsicle options to choose from because my friend Sarah from the blog Live Eat Learn just came out with her cookbook THIS WEEK YO called For The Love of Popsicles.
It is a beautiful, creative, and tantalizing popsicle cookbook with 75 naturally delicious icy sweet summer treats that are wholesome and approachable. Sarah has taken store-bought popsicles and replaced them with fun versions that are generally healthier than the average pop while also using down-to-earth ingredients. And she has created a popsicle for every personality and popsicle-loving type. Cookies and Cream, Key Lime Pie, Roasted Peaches and Cream, Mint Chocolate, S’mores, Tiramisu….just to name a few.
And for the over-21 crowd, she goes above and beyond with Poptails like Frosé Sangria, Margarita, Bloody Mary, Mojito, and Mudslide. Oh yeah!
With warmer temps (finally!) here and kids about to bust out of school for the summer, you should definitely, absolutely get this book. I was privileged to be one of Sarah’s official taste testers as she was refining her recipes and I can tell you firsthand that her cookbook is a popsicle palooza that will bring joy to both young and young at heart ALL SUMMER LONG. Cuz 75 TASTY POPSICLE RECIPES YO!
If you need to find me this summer, I’ll just be sitting in a sun chair in my backyard with a popsicle in hand. It will most likely be a chocolate chip cookie dough popsicle. Cuz some things never change.Print
Almonds bring our cookie dough dreams to life in these chocolate chip cookie dough popsicles! Only minutes to make and using simple ingredients. The challenge is waiting for them to freeze before devouring! This recipe is posted with permission from For The Love of Popsicles cookbook.
- Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips in a blender until evenly mixed.
- Pour into popsicle molds, leaving a little space at the top for them to expand. Sprinkle in chocolate chips (you can add more or less, depending on how chocolatey you want your pops). *Be sure to read Sarah’s pro tip in the notes below!
- Insert popsicle sticks and freeze until hard (at least 4 hours).
- Run the mold under warm water for a few seconds to loosen them up, then remove from the mold.
Pro tip: Drop a few chocolate chips into your mold after you fill them with the almond mixture. If you notice they sink to the bottom, freeze the mixture first for an hour, then add the chips and insert the sticks, returning to the freezer until completely frozen.
