Contributed by: A. Anderson
Inspired by the Mexican heat, these popsicles – or palatas – bring together the classic combination of peanut butter and chocolate, with a spicy kick to your palate.
- 1 cup (250 ml) peanut butter
- 1/3 cup (75 ml) liquid honey
- 3/4 tsp (4 ml) cayenne pepper
- 1/4 tsp (1 ml) salt
- 1/3 cup (75 ml) unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 cup (250 ml) milk
- 1 tbsp (15 ml) peanuts, very finely chopped (optional)
In a large (4 cup/1 L) measuring cup, stir peanut butter with honey, cayenne and salt. Stir in cocoa powder until smooth.
Very gradually whisk in milk, until mixture is smooth and milk is completely combined.
Sprinkle base of popsicle molds with peanuts. Pour peanut butter mixture into molds and insert popsicle sticks. Freeze until firm, about 6 hours.
