Chocolate Kiwi Popsicles

These are unbelievably easy, remarkably delicious and staggeringly refreshing.  If you’re asked to bring a little something to a cookout or party this summer, these are a budget-friendly option that won’t take hours.  The only ingredients are kiwis, coconut oil and dark chocolate.

Slice the kiwis into quarter-inch thick rounds

That’s a Rhode Island-shaped cutting board….one of the more creative of our wedding gifts.  Here’s a better look:

The recipe called for popsicle sticks, but the market had plastic spears—which I ended up liking even better.

Lay the speared kiwi slices out on a pan covered with wax paper, then freeze.  They only take 10-15 minutes to freeze.

Use a double boiler to heat the chocolate, and dip.  If you don’t have a double boiler (like me), you can boil water in one pan, and place a second over the top of the boiling water with the chocolate in it.  You’ll need one cup of cholocate and 1/2 a cup of coconut oil.

And because I can’t help myself:

About that “no dogs on the bed” rule Chris and I were going to stick to….
