Mint Chocolate Popsicle recipe

Have Your Mint Popsicles and Eat the Stick Too!

Recently we brainstormed the ultimate Popsicle. In my ideal Popsicle, the pesky wooden stick would be replaced with something deliciously edible. I decided to experiment with Pepperidge Farm Pirouettes, a rolled, wafer cookie with cream filling, using the cookie as the stick. The result is an easy and entirely edible Popsicle, inspired by one of my favorite Girl Scout Cookies — Thin Mints! Making the Popsicles was simple: I filled small Dixie cups with ice cream and gently inserted the cookie stick. The chocolate coating proved more difficult. I intended to quickly dip the Popsicles in melted chocolate and crushed mint cookies.

Unfortunately, the chocolate froze faster than I could dip and roll, so I opted for a simple chocolate coating. The wafer sticks come in four flavors, so feel free to choose your favorite cookie/ice cream combination. To learn the technique,

Thin Mint Popsicles With Edible Stick


  1. 2 1/2 cups mint chip ice cream
  2. 4 Pepperidge Farm Pirouette Cookies, halved
  3. 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  4. 2 teaspoons canola oil
  5. 1/2 cup crushed Thin Mint Cookies (optional)


  1. Cut the wafer cookies in half using a sharp knife. Fill 8 3-ounce paper cups half way with mint-chip ice cream. Gently insert the cookie stick in the center of cup. Finish filling cups with the ice cream and cookie sticks. Place in freezer for an hour to harden.
  2. Melt chocolate chips and oil in a saucepan over low heat. Let the chocolate cool to room temperature. Add crushed cookies, if desired.
  3. Remove Popsicles from mold and dip in chocolate. Serve immediately or place in freezer to set.

Makes 8 Popsicles.

Would this recipe work with an orange sherbert/vanilla ice cream combination with white chocolate shell? My sweetie is a devoted 50-50/Dreamsicle fan. I'm wondering if the sherbert would be too soft or melt too quickly.

You could also line the cup with melted chocolate first, let it freeze until it hardens, then put the ice cream in the chocolate lined cup.

Oh, I love Magic Shell it is good but you can make it at home as well with melted chocolate chips and a little of oil! I will just have to get a squirt bottle for next time! Thanks for all of the tips!

I would definitely combine cookies the next time, stacynelson that is a great idea! Molly, those cookies can actually stand up in the Popsicle because they are creme filled, so the creme freezes and makes them stronger! No spoon needed for a Popsicle!

WOW these look amazing! Though I feel like those cookies are so flimsy I would probably eat with a spoon — MMMMMM delicious.

You may try putting the cookies in the bottom of the cup then putting in the soft ice cream - that way you can chocolate coat the cookies and ice cream at the same time... yum!
