sweet treats series :: chocolate dipped kiwi pops

february sweet treats seriesOkay, y’all, these are the bom-diggity! At family dinner last week one of our family members brought over these awesome chocolate covered kiwi pops. They’re paleo, they’re refreshing, and needless to say, they’re delicious! They have the perfect amount of tartness from the kiwi combined with the sweetness from the chocolate. And the texture is oh so satisfying.

I’m drooling just looking at the photo of them. Here’s what you need:

  • 6 large kiwis, cut into 1/3″-1/2″ thick rounds
  • 1 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • popsicle sticks or lollipop sticks

And here’s how to do it:

  • Slice the peeled kiwis into rounds.
  • Stick a lollipop or popsicle stick in the edge of each one.
  • Place on a tray lined with wax paper or parchment.
  • Freeze for at least 4 hours and up to 48 hours.
  • In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and the coconut oil together.
  • Dip each frozen kiwi into the melted chocolate. The chocolate will harden within a few moments of being dipped.
  • Eat immediately or re-freeze.

Deeee-licious!
