Chocolaty Greek Yogurt Frozen Pops with Sugary Cinnamon Filo Flakes

Fudge-Pops-10I’ve been having so much fun recipe testing with Old School Favorites rich and delicious Chocolate Szauce and my children have been having a blast scraping the little glass jars clean. This szauce can go way beyond a delicious topping on an ice cream sundae.

I realize that for some of us summer is over. But really, can’t we enjoy some of the treats of summer anytime throughout the year? Garden fresh fruits and vegetables are one thing, but how about homemade frozen chocolate pops? Are we limited to ‘summer only’ for these rich and delicious chocolate treats? No- I say! (Who’s with me?)

Popsicle molds are not required to make these chocolaty and tart treats. Small plastic or waxed cups and wooden popsicle sticks purchased at a craft store and held into place with aluminum foil will do just fine.

Although they can be enjoyed alone, the Filo Flakes add an extra special sweetness and crunch. A fun little shop housed in NYC and Toronto called Momofuku Milk Bar where they serve-up, among many things, soft serve topped with a ridiculously addicting cereal topping inspires my Sugary Cinnamon Filo Flakes. A Greek-inspired version, I suppose and hopefully just a crave-worthy as Momofuku’s!

INGREDIENTS:

Chocolaty Greek Yogurt Frozen Pops:

2 cups good Greek yogurt

1-16 ounce jar Old School Favorite’s Chocolate Szauce

4-5 tablespoons milk

4-5 tablespoons sugar (optional- depending on how sweet you like your pops!)

Sugary Cinnamon Filo Flakes:

4 Filo sheets

2 tablespoons butter, melted

4 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoons cinnamon

DIRECTIONS:

Prepare the Chocolaty Greek Yogurt Frozen Pops : Wisk together Greek yogurt, Chocolate Szauce, milk and sugar in a medium bowl. Pour the mixture into Popsicle molds or plastic/waxed cups. Place sticks into center and freeze for 4-6 hours or overnight.

Prepare the Sugary Cinnamon Filo Flakes:

Fudge-Pops-5Butter the bottom of a cookie sheet. Place a sheet of filo onto the pan, brush with butter and sprinkle with the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Continue layering with the remaining 3 sheets of filo. These are going to get crumbled into tiny pieces so don’t worry about making them perfect!

Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees until the filo is golden brown.

Fudge-Pops-13Once completely cooled, crumble the filo sheets into tiny pieces and place the crumbles in a bowl.

Fudge-Pops-12If there is sugar-cinnamon mixture left over, toss it in with the crumbled filo. Before serving the frozen pops, dip the pops into the flakes.
