CULINARY TWIST: Papaya pops!
We love new and innovative ways to use classic ingredients like dried fruits. Papaya is certainly special and different, and so we think it deserves to be showcased!
-Melt the chocolate of your choice (milk, dark, white, etc.) and place a tablespoon of it on a lined baking sheet. With the back end of your spoon, create a medium-sized circle.
-Working quickly, place a lollipop stick (these can be bought at cooking supply stores or online) halfway into the melted chocolate.
-Before the chocolate hardens, add chopped papaya spears, nuts, and other dried fruits in the center of the lollipop. Refrigerate before serving. Watch your guests and kids go absolutely ga-ga for this healthy and creative treat!
For another equally delicious treat, use whole papaya spears and dip halfway into the chocolate of your choice. Before the chocolate melts, add finely chopped nuts to create a lollipop out of the spear itself!
