Friday Dessert: cookie-dough popsicles


If you remember, I love popsicles. So when I saw a recipe for Cookie Dough Popsicles on the girlichef blog, I knew I'd have to try it. The original recipe isn't vegan, but all I had to do was swap out the real milk for nondairy milk.
Thanks to the husband for taking this picture!
It's so simple; you heat brown sugar in milk (soy, in my case) until the sugar dissolves, then add a pinch of salt and some vanilla. Let cool, then put chocolate chips in your popsicle molds, pour the milky mixture over, and freeze! I didn't have mini chocolate chips like the recipe calls for, so I just chopped up the chocolate chips I had.

It's amazing how much these ingredients, together, actually taste like cookie dough. One of the reasons I like to make popsicles at home is because I don't like them to be too sweet, and that was the only problem I had with these-they were a little too sweet for my tastes. This could be because my popsicles were bigger than Heather from Girlichef's-she made 10 2.5-ounce popsicles from the recipe, whereas my popsicle holders are a little more standard in size-a scant 4 ounces each, and so I had made an even 6 popsicles. Smaller servings might make the sweetness seem less intense. I'll make them again, for sure, but next time I'm going to decrease the sugar from 2/3 cup to 1/2, and see how I like that. But people who aren't so picky about sweetness, or who make smaller popsicles, will love these as is!

Ooh nice!

Also, I still do that too even though I've been vegan like 7 years - I still call dairy milk "real" milk most of the time - we have to stop! :D
