10 Min Ice Cream Pops

You no longer have to settle for just a scoop; chocolate-dipped pops can be made in minutes.

Level: Easy
Total: 1 hr 35 min (includes cooling time)
Active: 45 min
Yield: 4 hearty burritos


  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 1/2 cup refined coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, optional
  • 2 round cardboard pints of your favorite ice cream


  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and put in the freezer. Combine the chocolate, coconut oil and vanilla extract in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 15 second increments, stirring with a spoon in between, until the chocolate is three-quarters of the way melted. Then stir the mixture until the chocolate melts completely. Set aside.
  2. Remove the ice cream pints from the freezer and discard the lid. Using a serrated knife, slice off a very thin piece from the side of the container so that it sits flat on a cutting board. With the container on its side, slice crosswise into 3 equal rounds. Remove the cardboard from each round and insert a wooden ice pop stick through the cut side. Dip into the melted chocolate and lay flat on the chilled baking sheet (see Cook’s Note). Let harden in the freezer for 30 seconds and serve, or wrap individually with plastic and freeze for up to 2 weeks.
