Chocolate Cherry Red Wine Ice Pops Recipe Is How to Celebrate Life

Who says ice pops are just for kids? Combine red wine, dark chocolate and cherries, and you'll have the adults standing in line for these babies.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 4 hours
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 4 hours and 10 minutes

Ingredients

Here's how to make it:

  1. In a saucepan, heat the sugar and the wine on medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves and the mixture just begins to simmer.
  2. Add the cherries and allow to cook for about 3 to 5 minutes. Cool slightly. 
  3. Process everything except the chocolate in a food processor or standing blender until smooth. 
  4. Return to the saucepan and stir in chocolate to melt and combine. Cool.
  5. Pour the mixture into molds and freeze for about 1 1/2 hours, then insert wooden sticks. Allow to freeze until solid an additional 3 to 4 hours. To remove from molds, run warm water over the molds to help release the ice pops.

Variations

  • Freeze in a shallow glass casserole pan stirring a few times during the freeze time. Serve by scooping into bowls! If you are feeling really stressed, just eat it out of the container with a giant spoon!
  • Dip the frozen ice pops into melted chocolate. Dip in chopped nuts, coconut or chopped cherries, if desired. Freeze until chocolate hardens.
