Expert Tips

Want to make your own chocolate hard-shell topping? In small microwavable bowl, place 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons coconut oil. Microwave uncovered on High 30 seconds; stir. Microwave 15 seconds longer; stir until smooth. Cool 15 minutes before dipping frozen pops.

Can’t put your finger on what it is that makes this paleta so amazing? We’ll tell you! It’s the magical chocolate shell and the sprinkling of toasted coconut; they take this creamy paleta to a whole new level of deliciousness.

To toast coconut, heat oven to 350°F. Spread coconut in ungreased shallow pan. Bake 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.

Directions

  • 1 In medium bowl, beat coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk with whisk until smooth. Divide mixture among 6 (5-oz) paper cups. Cover cups with foil; insert craft stick into center of each pop. (Or fill ice pop molds according to manufacturer’s directions.) Freeze about 6 hours or until frozen.
  • 2 Pour chocolate topping into 1-cup glass measuring cup. Working with 1 pop at a time, remove pop from cup. Dip top half of pop into chocolate topping; immediately sprinkle coconut over chocolate before it hardens. Serve immediately, or return decorated pops to freezer. Repeat with remaining pops.
