When I was a little girl, I loved cake with guava jelly filling. Later, I fell in love with guava shells in syrup served with pieces of cream cheese, which I learned to eat in Caracas. I still enjoy the glorious contrast of these familiar flavors and textures, and I’m always on the search for new recipes that pair these two ingredients. Make them ahead of time for kids’ birthdays or to spoil loved ones. These pops can stay out at room temperature and they also freeze well. Let us know what you think! MORE + LESS -
