Milk Chocolate Snowflake Pops


It snowed all night. The blizzard that collapsed the Minneapolis Metro Dome visited our neighborhood too. Not as much snow, thank goodness, but lots of snowy white beauty. My husband and I set out on a late night blizzard walk. It was beautiful. We took the bike bath and went through the silent woods. Spectacular and serene to say the least. When was the last time you went out hiking at night.... in a snowstorm? We huddled under some resting pine trees on the golf course near our house. It was sweet protection from the wet snowflakes that were stinging our noses, necks and cheeks.


Today, we woke up to this.


 All of the branches in the yard were frosted with snowy icing.


Even our "Halloween Spider...(that is still up) enjoyed a snowy treat!


In honor of the snow, I made these wonderful milk-chocolate snowflake pops. Perfect for the stocking or giving away to those you love. I tried one, I couldn't resist. They are delicious! Easy.... all you need is chocolate!


Voila! Chocolate Snowflake Pops!

Loads of snow and love! xoxo Miss Megan

P.S. I feel like I cheated on this post... it's a bit on the "trim" size. Read my post from yesterday if you are looking for something with more grit and substance! he he!

  3. Megan - these are so cute - if I wasn't so fed up with snow I'd be making this now! It makes snowflakes palatable - even welcoming! These days I refuse to watch Frosty the Snowman but when I come around (I will eventually accept) these will be singing tome.

  28. Dearest Megan, I can imagine how freesing cold the other side of the globe right now. Just look at the snow out there. Btw, these chocolate pops are so cute! Love those molds. Are those plastic molds? I think it should be wonderful to mold out some candies. :o) Hope you're having a great day & stay warm.
    Blessings, Kristy
    p/s Have you stock up everything yet? You better do so. Those snow storm doesn't sound good at all. Take care.

  30. I was so impressed with the pops, that I went out to buy some molds and make some myself. I couldn't find the snowflakes, so I came back with penguins in scarfs and hats. After making the pops, I noticed that the chocolate started to melt very easily. Do you think this is because I used dark chocolate compound wafers instead of chips?

  31. Beautiful snowflakes! Blizzards can be a pain, but you can't doubt that they always look so beautiful the next morning. Really enjoyed the pics!

  32. Those snowflakes (the chocolate ones) are perfect! I'm not a fan of snow, as any bit of it makes my driveway practically impassable to all but 4 wheel drive vehicles. It is beautiful though! :)
