popsicle bar

We absolutely love this adorable DIY popsicle bar featured in My Domaine.com. The idea came from Eden Passante, who runs the entertaining and lifestyle site, Sugar and Charm. It’s so easy to do that you can make it yourself in a matter of minutes! All you need are store-bought popsicles (but you can make your own, of course), melted chocolate and your choice of sweet toppings!

Here’s are some tips on how you can replicate this fun and interactive chilly snack bar on your next party.

Use a clean galvanized tin pail filled with ice to store your popsicles in. We love how the tin pail lends a rustic feel.

Place your toppings into individual bowls and place them all together in a wooden tray. I love how the printed table napkin adds color to the tray.

While the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle some toppings on the chocolate. Wait till the chocolate hardens a bit and enjoy!
While the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle some toppings on the chocolate. Passante used chocolate sprinkles, toasted coconut shavings, mini marshmallows, mini peanut butter cups. Wait until the chocolate hardens so the toppings won’t fall off. Enjoy!
How To Properly Melt Chocolate:

1. Put your chocolate in a glass or aluminum bowl. Make sure the bowl is completely dry. Even a drop of water will cause your chocolate to seize up during the melting process.
2. Boil water in a separate pot. Once it reaches boiling point, turn off the flame. Place the bowl with the chocolate on top of the pot, like a double broiler. Make sure no steam touches the chocolate as it will cause it to seize up.
3. Wait for some of the chocolate to melt then start stirring gently.
4. The end result should be a homogeneous, silky and smooth chocolate mixture.
