Espresso Frozen Pops Recipe

Source: Rowland Coffee Roasters

2 cups brewed espresso (or 2 cups very strong coffee)
1/2 cup chocolate syrup
6 tablespoons granulated sugar *
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
6 tablespoons milk

* Because granulated sugar may not dissolve easily in frozen pops, substitute liquid sugar (available at grocery stores) for uniform sweetness.

Combine all ingredients in a pitcher. Pour into 8 pop molds. Insert sticks and freeze for 3 to 4 hours or until solid.

Makes 8 servings.
