You may think of popsicles as a treat for children. . . they can be but don't give up on them now that you can vote. Lately I have been experimenting with 'adult' popsicles . . . meaning iced treats laced with booze.
When it came to coffee week I decided an iced treat would be the way to go. This recipe combines coffee, cream, chocolate, and vanilla.
Oh yes, I can't forget the booze - I used both Kaluha and a delicious Latte Creama made with grappa that I bought to years ago in Venice. You have to be careful when adding alcohol to anything that you wish to freeze - too much and it will never freeze properly . . . too little and you'll be described as being a puritan.
I think I got the mix just right.
These were amazing - the coffee/chocolate layer tasted a bit like an adult fudgesicle and the cream layer tasted like more! LOL
