  • ¼ cup Irish cream (like Baileys)
  • ½ cup coffee, chilled
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 to 4 Tbsp honey or sugar, to taste

1.    Whisk ingredients together until smooth, adding more or less honey.

2.    Pour into molds, leaving a little space at the top for them to expand. Insert sticks and freeze until hard (at least 8 hours). If mixture is too liquid for sticks to stand straight up, let freeze for about 1 hour, then insert sticks.

3.    Run them under warm water for seconds to loosen them up, then remove from the mold.
