  2. Put the cookies into a blender or coffee grinder.

  6. Add the chocolate syrup to the cookie grounds and stir together until it is a thick batter.
  7. Put the batter on a sheet of wax paper and spread it out so that it is about 1/4 in. thick.
  8. Use the bottom of the push pop to cut out circles from the batter.
  9. Put half of the cut outs into the bottom of the push pops as the first layer.
  10. Add a thick layer of coffee ice cream so that the push pop is half full.
  11. Add another cookie cut out and another layer of ice cream so that the push pop is almost full.
  12. Add a topping of whipped cream.
  13. Drizzle a teaspoon of chocolate syrup over the top of the whipped cream.
  14. Add a chocolate covered coffee bean or cherry to top the push pop.
  15. Freeze if desired or enjoy immediately!

Portable Push Pops

If you want to make these delicious chocolate desserts to bring to a party or other event, you will need to purchase the push pop holders with lids. These holders can be found on Amazon (links to the right) or at craft stores as mentioned before.

Make sure to also purchase a lollipop display or a box with holes punched into the top in order to support your push pops while traveling.

      This sounds amazing! I didn't know that you could buy the push pops in stores. I remember having popsicles that you had to push up when I was a kid. As a coffee lover, this is perfect for me. I voted this up and useful!

      Thank you, Ebower. We found the push pop in a craft store in Hawaii (Ben Franklin's), so I am sure that they have some in the mainland...possibly in a large department store like Walmart or Target, but Amazon seems to have the best prices. Good luck if you try to make them! They are delicious.

      Brittany,

      You live in Los Angeles, and I live in Orange County. That isn't too far for you travel to deliver a dozen push pops, is it?

      What a great idea! Thanks for publishing this delicious article.

      Thank you, MelChi! Check at your local department or craft stores. If not, Amazon is really cheap and has the best selection.

      HawaiiHeart, Thanks so much. Push pops are the new cake pops and they are so popular right now. Being from Kona, my family and I had to give it that coffee twist! Thanks again for your comment.

      I found them at a craft store but amazon has them for a very cheap price. Search for "push pop containers" on google and you'll find them. Good luck!

      What a fantastic and clever idea and great photo. I had no idea you could purchase push pop holders. I guess the possibilities for fillings are endless. I am definitely going to hunt some of these down.
