Cold Brew Ice Pops
OK, we’ve officially found the most delicious way to get our caffeine fix. We took cold brew coffee, added just enough cream and sugar and then froze the whole concoction. Presenting cold brew ice pops. They’re so good, you might want to clear out your whole freezer and make a triple batch.
2½ cups cold brew coffee, divided
⅓ cup sugar
½ cup half-and-half
½ cup coffee beans (optional)
1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring ½ cup coffee and the sugar to a simmer, stirring continuously until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat.
2. Pour the remaining 2 cups coffee into a pitcher (or another container with a spout, like a liquid measuring cup). Add the warm coffee-sugar mixture and the half-and-half and stir to combine.
3. Pour the mixture into molds, filling each to about ¼ inch from the top. Add 2 to 3 teaspoons coffee beans, if desired, and insert sticks.
4. Freeze until solid, at least 2½ hours. Store in the freezer for up to two weeks.
