Banoffee Popsicles

So, I've become a terrible Blogger... I've just been doing so much recently that I hadn't noticed I'd run out of scheduled drafts! Ooops! Planning to type a few more up over the next few days, but it meant that I was in a bit of a tizzy when it came to Ice-Cream Sunday today.

I actually realised yesterday that I needed a recipe to post today, and was planning to make an apple and elderflower sorbet this lunchtime to post. Unfortunately, muggins here forgot to put her ice-cream machine in the freezer last night - so no sorbet today! Instead, I threw together these tasty little Banoffee Popsicles using a few bits and pieces I had in - super simple, and very yummy!

You'll need a mould for this one - the deeper the better - and some lollipop sticks.

Chocolate sprinkles
50g white chocolate
100g caramel flavoured chocolate buttons
1 sachet of banana flavoured instant whip
200ml milk (or however much is required by the instant whip you are making!)

Prep time: 15 minutes
Freeze time: Minimum 2 hours
Make 6 pops

  1. Start by giving your mould a good polish to remove any grease. Pour a few chocolate sprinkles into the bottom of each hole.
  2. Melt the white chocolate, and carefully spoon half a teaspoon into each mould. Tap the mould on your work surface a few times to make the chocolate spread. Pop this into the freezer to set.
  3. Melt the caramel flavoured buttons in a wide bowl. Take you mould from the freezer, and fill each hole 1/2 full of the caramel flavoured melts. Turn your mould upside down over the bowl and tap lightly - this should give each mould a nice thin coating of caramel flavoured chocolate. Pop the mould back in the freezer to set one more.
  4. Make up the instant whip as per the instructions on the packet (usually add milk, whisk until thick) 
  5. Fill each hole in the mould with instant whip, then pop a lollipop stick into the centre of each. Pop back in the freezer to set for at least 2 hours.
  6. Just remove the popsicles from the mould as and when you are ready to serve. Simple!

Happy Thoughts
