What's this?

You won’t find these popsicles in the freezer section of your grocery store. Smoked blackberry puree meets a cool and creamy mascarpone mix before getting frozen and finished off with a dip in our fresh baked cookie crunch.

Ingredients

  • 1 Pint blackberries

  • 1/2 Cup sugar

  • 1 lemon, juiced

  • Pinch salt

  • 8 Ounce Cheese, mascarpone

  • 2 Tablespoon heavy cream

  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cardamom

  • 1/2 Cup Nilla Wafers

  • 1/4 Cup butter, melted

  • 2 Tablespoon granulated sugar

  • 1 Tablespoon Nonfat Dry Milk Powder

Steps

  • 1

    When ready to cook, set temperature to 180˚F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Super Smoke if available.
  • 2

    Spread the blackberries out onto a perforated sheet tray and place directly on the grill grate. Smoke for 15-20 minutes.
  • 3

    Remove from the grill and let cool. Transfer to a blender pitcher and add the sugar, lemon juice and pinch of salt. Pulse a few times to break up the berries if you prefer it a little chunky or puree all the way and strain out the solids for a smooth texture. Set aside.
  • 4

    In a medium bowl whisk together mascarpone, cream, cardamom and salt.
  • 5

    In a popsicle mold, scoop each mixture 1 tablespoon at a time until the mold is filled. Add the popsicle stick and transfer to the freezer. Freeze overnight.

    For the cookie crunch: In the bowl of a food processor combine the wafers, butter sugar and milk powder. Pulse to make a coarse crumble. Spread the mixture out on a parchment lined baking sheet.

    Set temperature to 350℉.

    Place the sheet tray directly on the grill grate and bake for 10-15 minutes. Let cool at room temperature then break up a bit with your fingers.

    When the popsicles are frozen, remove from the molds and dip in the cookie crunch. Enjoy!
