- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon ground coriander
- 2 cups warm water
- 1 cup torn kale leaves
In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients except kale and add the warm water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally until the mixture is smooth and thick. Remove from the heat and cool to room temperature.
Place kale in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Stir the kale into the chocolate mixture, divide it among 8 ice mold pops and insert pop sticks.
Freeze for at least 4 hours before serving. The pops will keep up to 3 weeks in an airtight container in the freezer
