Want to take joy on the go? Put holiday happiness on a stick with these peppermint chocolate lollipops.
• 1 container [TopBrandName] SLOW CHURNED® Peppermint Light Ice Cream
• Lollipop sticks
• 4 oz. bittersweet chocolate or chocolate chips
• 4 oz. white chocolate or white chocolate chips
• 2 Tablespoons vegetable shortening
• Holiday sprinkles and candies
Place a plate or other flat surface lined with parchment paper in the freezer for 15 minutes. Make round scoops of ice cream and place on parchment. Put a lollipop stick in each scoop of ice cream and freeze for 1 hour or up to 24 hours.
When you are ready to dip the lollipops, melt chocolate and 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening in a bowl in the microwave. Use 20 second intervals until the chocolate and shortening are melted together and smooth (should take 40-60 seconds and no longer, you do not want to scorch the chocolate). Let sit while repeating the process with to melt the white chocolate and 1 tablespoon of vegetable shortening in the microwave until melted together and smooth.
Place different sprinkles in separate small bowls.
Dip each lollipop halfway into the chocolate and dip into sprinkles. Immediately put back into freezer to set. Repeat with remaining chocolate and white chocolate.
Be sure to let the lollipops freeze completely before serving.
Fun Tip: Instead of dipping lollipops half way in chocolate you can put melted chocolate in parchment cones and drizzle each lollipop with chocolate and white chocolate.
