11 steps

  • Put all the Popskis ingredients into a bowl: date puree, natural peanut butter (or almond butter or Wowbutter), fleur de sel, unsweetened coconut, puffed quinoa.

  • Mix well.

  • Roll the mixture in your palms to form balls, making sure they’re tightly compacted. (If it gets a bit too sticky, you can rub your hands with a little coconut or olive oil.)

  • To make lollipops, insert a stick (but the little “balls” option is just as delicious).

  • Line your baking sheet with parchment paper and place your Popski onto the sheet.

  • Do the same for all your Popskis.

  • Chill in the freezer for an hour (or 24 hours for better results).

  • IMPORTANT: Follow the instructions on the chocolate fondue can. Note that the entire can of chocolate fondue must be completely submerged in boiling water… not just partially. Boil for 20 minutes.

  • Dip the Popskis into the fondue and then decorate.

  • Put your ChocoPopskis in the freezer.

  • Take them out just before serving and bask in all the joyful praise. Ho! ho! ho!

History

This recipe, made in collaboration with Chocolats Favoris, is dipped in dark chocolate fondue and will get you right into the holiday spirit, making this season a fantastically festive and memorable one! Ho! ho! ho! Easy to make, these ChocoPopskis also make for a deliciously fun family activity. Wow your guests and treat them all to some truly wholesome chocolate-coated happiness. Needless to say, this recipe is sure to become one of your all-time favorites. Ho! ho! ho!

This is an amazing recipe (trust me). When Chocolats Favoris suggested we create a unique recipe, I wanted to make sure that I showcased the dark chocolate fondue. I know you may find this hard to believe but I eat a little bit of dark chocolate every day. Every single day, each and every day, day in and day out. Well actually, it’s in the evening. Every night, I indulge in a square of dark chocolate. I love it. I’m absolutely crazy about it.

What I like about this recipe is that it’s as quirky and amusing as it is surprising. It has such a unique yet refined taste… and the recipe is just so simple. I’m telling you, you’re going to have to make them, then make them again, and then some more, over and over again.

Wishing you a deliciously scrumptious holiday season, have a blast and bake loads of Labriskis!

Storage

FAQ

Where can I buy Madame Labriski date puree?

At IGA, Rachelle Béry, Marché Tradition and Bonichoix grocery stores across Quebec. My purees contain no preservatives and can be found in the fruit and vegetable section (yes, dates are fruit) near the pre-cut fruit and vegetables. If you can’t find them, simply ask a member of staff!
