This is a great dessert to enjoy this 4th of July! It’s so cool and refreshing that it’s really great for any hot summer day. Plus, it’s a dessert you don’t have to feel guilty about because it’s almost entirely just strawberries! There is just a thin layer of frozen chocolate for some additional sweetness, but overall this is a guilt-free snack.
These popsicles could not be simpler. Really the only bad thing about them is having to wait until they freeze! Waiting is not my favorite thing…in fact it’s close to my least favorite, but these are worth it! To make this treat a bit more patriotic, you could get white chocolate flavored magic shell and then put some blue sprinkles on it!
The chocolate coating gives the popsicle a lot of its sweetness, but I kinda wish I had stirred in just a small bit of sugar into the pureed strawberries to sweeten it just a bit more. Once you get to the bottom part of the popsicle where there isn’t any chocolate, I found myself wanting a lil more sweetness. (And I might have poured on some more chocolate sauce on my half-eaten popsicle. Don’t judge.) So that’s my tip for you to take it or leave it!
- 2 1/2 cups fresh whole strawberries
- 1/3 cup cold water
- 2 cups of magic shell ice cream topping
- Blend the strawberries and water together to make 2 cups puréed strawberries.
- Pour into your popsicle mold. Allow to freeze for at least 4 hours.
- Pour magic shell into a tall, narrow container. Dip popsicle in the magic shell. Enjoy!
You might want to add a couple tablespoons of sugar, especially if your strawberries are not very sweet. The chocolate sweetens the pop nicely, but bites without the chocolate needed a bit more sugar in my opinion.
