Step 1

In small saucepan over medium heat, bring coconut milk, 2% milk, cocoa powder, cinnamon and chile to simmer, stirring to dissolve cocoa powder; strain to remove chile. Return milk mixture to saucepan and stir in sweetened condensed milk until well combined.

Step 2

Pour hot chocolate mixture into 10 (⅓ cup) ice pop molds. Freeze for 4-6 hours or until firm.

Tip by La Cocina Goya

● To easily release pops from molds, dip in warm water before removing.
● Add 1 tsp. instant espresso powder or 1 oz. brewed espresso for intense flavor.
● Adjust the amount of chile to suit your spice level.
