Spicy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Popsicles

Spicy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Popsicles

Months ago, I bought a Zoku popsicle maker. For those of you have not heard of this awesome contraption, it allows you to make popsicles in about 9 minutes. After first getting it, I experimented with it a few times, but since then it has really just been taking up freezer space. So, I decided it was time to put it to use again. Not being the hugest fan of fruit flavors, I grabbed a can of pumpkin from my pantry and with very few ingredients made this delicious treat! It's super easy to make, and super quick if you have a Zoku!


1 cup milk
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp vanilla
About 3 tbsp chocolate chips

Yield: 6 Zoku Popsicles


Mix all of the above ingredients except the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe container. Microwave on high for 1 minute, or until the pumpkin puree is well dissolved. Put half a tablespoon of chocolate chips at the bottom of each popsicle part of the Zoku. Pour mix into the Zoku or whatever popsicle container or maker you are using. Wait for them to freeze, which will be about 9 minutes in a Zoku and probably around an hour if you're just using an ice cube tray or other popsicle container that doesn't facilitate fast freezing. Last but not least, enjoy!

Cool down like the weather, and when in doubt, bake!
