I have posted quite a few photos of these mocha mud pie pops on Instagram, they are similar to a dessert I had at TGI Friday’s in Oslo, my favorite restaurant. Nice staff, delicious food and desserts.
I wanted to make my own version of the Mocha Mud Pie Pops and I hope you’ll like these.
You can still make them even if you don’t have a silicone mold, they’ll just be pops without the stick.
Mocha Mud Pie Pops
- 1 can sweetened condensed milk
- 3 egg yolks
- 3 1/2 oz. (100 g) Daim, crushed
- 1 tablespoon instant espresso powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 1/4 cups (500 ml) heavy cream
- 10 1/2 oz. (300 g) chocolate
- 1 packet Oreos, crushed
- 1 packet Manuelas Fluffy Chocolate Frosting (optional) or this chocolate mousse
- 1 1/2 oz. (45 g) almonds, chopped
Pour the condensed milk into a mixing bowl with the egg yolks, crushed Daim, instant espresso powder and vanilla extract. Mix until just combined.
Whisk the cream until soft peaks form and stir it into the condensed milk mixture.
I use silicone molds for this, simply pour the batter into the cavities to achieve perfectly round pops just like the ones at TGI Friday’s.
If you don’t have a silicone mold you could use small cupcake cases. Fill the cavities/cases all the way up with the batter and place in the freezer for about 5 hours, until firm.
You can get this mold from cacas.no or trufflemolds.com.
This next step can be done ahead, or just before serving.
Melt the chocolate and pop out the ice cream balls from the molds.
Place on a lined baking tray and wait for 5 minutes until they’re slightly softened.
Dip one end of a stick into the melted chocolate and press into the ice cream ball. Repeat with the remaining ice cream balls, then freeze until needed.
When ready to serve, crush the Oreos. Dip the ice cream balls into melted chocolate and wait a little before rolling them in the crushed cookies.
Sprinkle some chopped almonds on top.
At Friday’s these ice cream balls are served with chocolate mousse. Manuela’s Fluffy Chocolate Frosting is quite similar to Belgian chocolate mousse. You could make the mousse yourself, you can find the recipe here, but omit the Daim.
I pipe some mousse on the plate and place the chocolate dipped ice cream ball on top. Serve with warm chocolate sauce on the side.
I hope I was able to tempt you.
Wishing you all a wonderful day, hugs from me to you.
