These “chocolate covered kiwi pops” are tiny frozen treats made with fresh fruit coated with a layer of velvety rich dark chocolate. You know the punch line “No one can eat just one”? In my opinion (and in your opinion too, once you taste these charming babies), it actually sings for these chocolate covered kiwi pops, I definitely was not able to stop at one! Or two! Or three… Well, let’s just say, I ate a few! 😛
Hindu mythology tells the story of “Akshya Patra”, a vessel with an infinite bottom; A vessel that keeps producing food, infinitely. The vessel is a boon given by Lord Krishna (One of the many avatars of the Hindu God) to one of his disciples. If you were to be blessed with a vessel like that, what foods would you choose? Leave a comment below. I would love to read all your answers.
Me? Well, I decided to make a list of the foods I would like but then halfway through the list, I realized that my list of foods I want from the endless vessel was turning out to be endless itself! I mean, it was tooooo long, guys!:D So, I decided to keep the list limited to my favorite summer foods instead. Here it is:
- Dark chocolate (Rain or shine, dark chocolate always, I mean, ALWAYS tops my list)
- Popsicles/snow cones/ice candy. Call it by any name; I want frozen flavored-water on a stick!
- Chilled Club Soda (Now this versatile baby on hand, you can create multiple drinks! Check these out here)
Now that you have read the list, quickly glance through the recipe, please. Get it?
Chocolate Covered Kiwi Pops = 3 on 4 of my infinite bottom vessel, summer list! I had two kiwis at home, I created these chocolate covered kiwi pops on an impulse and WOAH!
Chocolate covered Kiwi Pops = Mind Blown! Juicy Kiwis at frozen temperatures like Popsicles, with a crystal or two of salt, coated with smooth, dark chocolate with a layer of roasted nuts.
I made 8 popsicles, was left with only two by the time Nachiket came home, and gave him one! OK, I am usually not that mean or stingy when it comes to sharing; especially, when it is sharing with my husband. But these chocolate covered kiwi pops were very hard to resist and considering that they were such a breeze to make, I figured, I can buy a dozen kiwis on my next trip to the store and make them for him 😛
Well, go ahead and make these but do not tell your family, you plan to make them if you have only two kiwis at home. Or…. Be prepared to fight over them! Here is the recipe for:
