You know what they say, when life gives you fruit, dip it in chocolate! 

Hi, internet friends!! Can I convince you to chat over an icy cold snack in April? ‘Cause I’m about TO. It’s almost MAY, you guys. That is wild. Before we know it, we will be swimming at the community pool, drinking Zimas, and eating Chocolate Covered Kiwi Pops… High-Five!

But seriously. Kiwis on a stick. Like, what is going on. I’ve had this written up on my chalkboard (inside my head) for at least three years now, but never really got around to talking about it. I made ’em several times, but we ate them way before I could even think of snapping a pic.

Anyway, there’s a very important reason that you must know about these pops.

I was headed to my little one’s classroom party couple weeks back and was told to bring snacks. However, the order didn’t stop there. The teacher wrote, “bring a snack that is nut-free, allergen-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free”. I wrote back and asked if I could bring water bottles, and she wrote back with “LOL!” … she thought I was joking.  I wasn’t. 

So, knowing that my daughter would totally hate me if I brought Jell-O cups, yet again, I started chatting to myself and finally arrived at THIS option.

I picked up a bag of dairy-nut-egg-and-soy-FREE chocolate chunks (they do exist!) + 6 kiwis + popsicle sticks and gave myself a hug. I mean, the pressure of knowing that I could do some serious damage (GOD forbid) to a kid if I brought in the wrong snack was weighing heavy on me, you know?

But I’m not dramatic about it or anything.

OH! And before getting the kiwi fruits, I texted the teacher to make sure no one was allergic to those, either.

Good thing is that these are oh so delish! Really, they are. And the recipe is brilliantly simple, little kids can make it.

This is what you do: peel the kiwi, cut it up into three or four thicker slices, place a popsicle stick in each slice, and freeze ’em solid. Then, melt the chocolate chunks, cool the melted chocolate for a bit, dip the kiwi slices in the chocolate, and bam. We’re done.

P.S. Keep them frozen.

P.P.S. The school is a 7-minute drive for me, but these pops were still frozen solid 30-minutes later in a covered plastic container.

ENJOY!

    Yummmm, we love these (and bananas and strawberries) – such a perfect snack anytime. And oh my gosh – that made me laugh (water bottles)! Now I’m craving some sunshine, a cool pool, and a zima.

    I think that this was brilliant! It is hard to decide what to bring any more to class events. There is always one or two for sure with a nut allergy and usually something added on. These are just perfect for the warm days coming around to everyone!!
