Move over cupcake, there’s a new trend in town that’s every bit as cute, playful & adept at satisfying summer sugar cravings. Popsicles are (quite literally) popping up all over, from trendy artisanal popsicle shops to nouveau party menus that shun plated desserts in favor of sweets on a stick. A tad bit tricky to pull off at hot summer soirees, this trend requires lots of ice and a very fast-on-their-feet server to avoid the dreaded melty pop. An added perk? No dishes to clean, although lots of napkins are required.
These Campari Citrus Pops serve up summer nostalgia with a boozy twist. Get the recipe from Zested.
Totally obsessed with the concept behind NYC’s popbar. An array of hand-crafted gelato on a stick made with fresh fruit & natural ingredients, in flavors like Pistachio, Strawberry-Lemon, & Coconut-Chocolate. And check out that display case…I don’t think popsicles have ever looked so chic!
Check out Williams-Sonoma’s Zoku Quick Pop Maker for the ultimate in making popsicles at home. And their Ice Pops Cookbook has gorgeous photos & recipes for versions using chocolate, cream, or seasonal fruits for the most gourmet pops around.
