These Black Forest Popsicles will be a success at your next get-together thanks to a delicious combination of chocolate, fresh cherries, and vanilla!

Cherries are a special occasion dish for me. To be fed, they must first labor. After biting into the luscious meat, your tongue must deftly remove the pit from the remainder of the flesh before swallowing the rest.

Of course, the pit needs to go someplace, which necessitates the use of a pit vessel for those pesky centers.

This is sounding quite eloquent. Eating cherries, in truth, is both lip-stainingly messy and utterly delightful. They’re one of my favorites.

I’m going to make popsicles out of fresh cherries today. Popsicles from the Black Forest.

Isn’t ‘black forest’ the most gorgeous name you’ve ever heard? It has a certain ring to it that “chocolate, cherry, and vanilla” does not.

They’re also healthful since they’re prepared with Greek yogurt. Or, ehm, it might be healthier.

Ingredients

To make the popsicles, combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl

  • 3/4 gallon of whole milk
  • 1 quart cream (either light or heavy works)
  • a third cup of sugar
  • vanilla extract (two tablespoons)
  • a pinch of salt
  • a half-cup of greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder (dutch process)
  • 1/2 cup pitted and halved fresh cherries

Pour the chocolate over the top.

  • 1/4 cup chopped dark chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil (shortening works as well, but I like coconut oil)

Instructions

  1. Heat the milk, cream, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt in a small saucepan over low heat until the sugar has fully melted, approximately 2 minutes. Make sure the mixture doesn’t boil. Allow for at least 20 minutes of chilling time in the refrigerator.
  2. Whisk in the greek yogurt until smooth after it has been refrigerated.
  3. 1 cup of the vanilla mixture should be poured into a separate basin. To make a chocolate combination, whisk dutch-process cocoa into this divided cup.
  4. Pour in the vanilla mixture, chocolate mixture, then cherries in that order. I found that filling the popsicle molds 1/4 full with vanilla, a tablespoon of chocolate, 2-3 cherry halves, and repeating the process worked great.
  5. As you insert the popsicle sticks into the mold, swirl the liquid *slightly*. If you whirl the mixture too much, it will get hazy.
  6. Freeze for at least 8 hours, if not longer.
  7. Combine the dark chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler to produce the chocolate drizzle. Drizzle over popsicles after whisking until melted!

Black Forest Popsicles are the best popsicles. They’re more dense than other popsicles and have a richer flavor.
