Mocha Popsicles

Recipe adapted from David Lebovitz

Makes 8 popsicles, depending on the size of your molds.

I made super strong coffee using my French press. I put 6 scoops of coffee with 3 cups of hot water and let it sit for 5 minutes.  It came out super strong and perfect.  Also, if you don't have sweetened condensed milk, David says you could substitute using half & half or milk. I would just add a little at a time to taste.

2 cups (500ml) extra-strong coffee or espresso

2/3 cup (160ml) sweetened condensed milk

1 1/2 tablespoon of unsweetened dutch processed cocoa powder

Mix the coffee with the sweetened condensed milk. Add the tablespoon of cocoa powder. Taste, and add a bit more milk or chocolate powder, if desired. (A spoonful or two is fine, but any more and the popsicles won't freeze as hard.)

Pour into popsicle molds and freeze until sold. Mine took about 8 hrs.
