Summer is just around the corner and that means you’ll be spending a lot of time outdoors and on-the-go enjoying pools, beaches and amusement parks. If you are looking for a way to stay cool while living it up in the great outdoors, you need to try these strawberry popsicles with chocolate. They are simple to make and are a refreshing way to beat the heat. They do make a bit of a mess, so I’ll be sharing my secret for cleaning dirt and germs wherever the summer happens to take you.
These strawberry popsicles with chocolate are a great summer recipe because they are made with summer ripened strawberries. If you go berry picking or grow your own berries, but just can’t eat them fast enough, simply puree the berries with some water and sugar and use them to make these delicious fruity popsicles.
One of my favorite decadent treats are chocolate covered strawberries. These popsicles, which use fresh strawberries and chocolate pudding, have a similar flavor.
To make these strawberry popsicles with chocolate, layer your popsicle mold with the strawberry puree and chocolate pudding. You can aim to make each layer neat and defined, but when your kids want to help you make the popsicles, all that goes out the window. No matter. These popsicles don’t have to look perfect to taste amazing!
Freeze the popsicles for 4 hours and run some warm water over the mold to loosen and remove.
There are few things better than enjoying a cool popsicle on a warm summer day. We brought ours with us on a post dinner walk. As you can imagine, when kids and popsicles meet, a mess usually results. But thanks to Wet Ones® Hand Wipes, on-the-go messes are no longer a concern. They come in convenient packages such as the Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes Canister and in the travel pack.
The strawberry popsicles with chocolate made quite the mess. My daughter used her hands to wipe her mouth (why do kids always do that?) and that made her hands sticky and messy.
I grabbed a Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes Canister from my tote and gave her one so that she could clean up her hands.
Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes kill 99.99% of germs. Though they are tough on dirt and germs, they are gentle on skin. The aloe inside each wipe makes them easy on even the littlest of hands. They are also hypoallergenic.
Wet Ones® Hand Wipes are America’s #1 Hand Wipe* and it is easy to see why. They clean better than hand sanitizers and are a great way to wipe out dirt and messes when water isn’t readily available.*#1 claim based on scan data for 52 weeks ending 1/28/17.
Wet Ones® Hand Wipes are a part of our everyday summer arsenal. I always keep a travel pack version in my purse since it is small and lightweight and you never know when you’ll need it. We travel a lot during the summer months, usually to theme parks and Wet Ones® Hand Wipes are perfect for use prior to snacking and eating when soap and water aren’t readily available. When we are flying, they are a must as airplanes are notoriously messy.
I love to stock up and keep some in the car as well so I can just grab a pack when we decide to take in a ball game or go to a local festival. I love being prepared and Wet Ones® Hand Wipes help me feel like a good mom since I know my family will be clean and germ free, ready for everything that comes our way this summer.
