A quick trip to Sobey’s to stock up on all things every good Canadian needs to get through a long weekend and survive a pool party with eight extra screaming girls.
This included a very special desert. Vanilla & Pecan Pops.
I toasted and and then finely chopped 100g of Pecan Halves. Our house smelled so good!
Using an ice cream scoop warmed in hot water I scooped eight small balls of ice cream and placed them on a parchment lined baking sheet. Then popped it back in the freezer for 30 minutes. *So important to dip that scoop in warm water to get nice round scoops!
I rolled those little scoops in the chopped pecans and pressed lightly to hold the pecans in place. Good grief my hands were cold!
Then I pushed a Popsicle stick into the centre of each ice cream ball and set the pops back on the baking sheet. Froze them for a few more minutes and they were ready to serve!
The rain held off, the girls had a blast, no fights, no tears, and I didn’t even stress about the mess! Oh, but I must confess. These little Vanilla Pecan Pops were too good to share with the kids, so I gave them Drumsticks and Hubby and I hogged the special dessert for ourselves!
