Frozen Flower Popsicles

 

You can get mom a box of chocolates this Mother’s Day, or you can make her something completely unique: frozen flower popsicles. Trust me on this one, even though I am not a mom at all. BUT I am like the mom whisperer and mom’s are screaming, “Make me a friggin bouquet of flower popsicles!”

 

Okay, maybe it was only my mom. She’s smart though.

 

These cool frozen flower popsicles are made with fruit and are just lovely to look at. If you don’t eat them right away, that is.

I used a specific popsicle for this project, Budget Saver Popsicles and I teamed up to create some exciting stuff for you to make this summer. They’re a brand you can pretty much find ANYWHERE. You need to use their monster pops, since the size and shape make it easier to add petals.

They have a product locator so you can see where they are nearby:

White Chocolate

When selecting your mangos, you want ones that are just slightly ripened, but not soft at all. They should be yellow inside, but firm. Soft mangos are difficult to slice.

 

To begin making your frozen flower popsicles, peel green skin off of mango using a potato peeler. Once you get to flesh, carefully peel thin slices on one side of mango. Repeat on other sides of mango.
Place slices in between paper towel and press out moisture. Allow to sit and dry for a bit.

Melt chocolate. Remove a popsicle from freezer and lay down on its side. Place a mango slice at top of popsicle. drop a little chocolate down bottom of mango slice so that it covers the crack between “petal” and popsicle.
Chocolate will harden quickly. Turn popsicle over very carefully, then adhere another slice on other side. If you are able to work quickly, you can add to more petals so that they layer between the first two.

Place in freezer and work on next popsicle. Give at least 45 minutes of refreezing popsicle, in between each layer of petals. Otherwise your pops will melt. If at any point your popsicle starts to look wet or you feel you are taking long, pause your work and place in freezer. It is best to take breaks and allow them to stay very frozen, rather than let them start to warm up, as the chocolate and petals could start to fall apart.

 

You want your popsicles to be frozen and hard as possible. It is best to work with a very cold freezer, in a well air-conditioned kitchen.

Just saying, these frozen flowers popsicles don’t die the next day. You also don’t have to worry about the delivery service messing it up. Happy Mother’s Day!

 

Tips:

* Very cold freezer, work in a very cool environment

*Mango slices should be super thin and dry. Keep them in between paper towel from peeling to adding to fr popsicles.

*White chocolate bark that is sold for dipping is the best kind to use for this.

*Work carefully, and handle popsicle very delicately

*Always store in freezer

*Use just enough chocolate to “seal” petal on, but don’t over do it. Glopping it on will make it difficult to add more petals.
