These are extremely yummy and pretty decadent in an ice-pop-on-a-stick kind of way. Not to worry, they are for ages really really young and up so you don’t have to miss out on these treats.

They make a great treat for the kids and can make a tasty addition to your summer party all dressed up in a Chocolate Magic Shell – oh yes! (Click here for recipe) and then lovingly finished off with crushed toasted pecans. Make them in ice cube trays and then serve them up in a bowl of ice to keep cool as an appetizer or addition to the dessert bar at your next cookout. Of course, you can use any freezable mold you want, but the ice cube trays work perfectly.

Now all you need to do is make room in that freezer! Enjoy.

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 oz) pkg Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 (8 oz) tub Whipped Topping, (i.e. Cool Whip)
  • 10 oz frozen Strawberries, chopped fine
  • 3 - 4 Bananas, chopped
  • 15 oz can crushed Pineapple, drained
  • 1 cup Pecans, chopped (you can leave these out if you don't like nuts)

Toppings (optional):

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl using a mixer, mix together the softened Cream Cheese and Sugar until well blended, then add in the Cool Whip followed by the chopped Strawberries and mix.
  2. Carefully fold in the Bananas, Pineapple and chopped Pecans.
  3. Butter or lightly spray your Ice Pop molds or ice cube trays, pour Ice Pop mixture in, carefully place your ice pop wooden sticks or lollipop sticks (both found at hobby stores or stores like Walmart) into center of molds and put into freezer for at least 4 - 6 hours or until completely frozen.
  4. Once frozen and ready to remove from molds, serve with or without your toppings like the Chocolate Magic Shell and crushed Pecans. Enjoy!

Notes

Chocolate Magic Shell sets once it hits the frozen Ice Pop, dip Ice Pop in room temp Chocolate followed by dipping into crushed Pecans. Almonds, Walnuts and Macadamia Nuts can also be substituted for the Pecans.Flaked Coconut also makes a great topping instead of the crushed Pecans or you can mix it all up and enjoy.
