With only three ingredients, these lollipops couldn’t be easier to make. The texture is soft and fudge-like, so they’re a bit different from the traditionally hard lollipops you get from using refined sugar.
This is dark chocolate, so you’ll want to add a little more syrup if you’d like them to be sweeter. You can taste the melted chocolate mixture before transferring it to the lollipop molds and decide then.
Dark Chocolate Lollipops
- 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate
- 4 tbs maple syrup
- 1 tsp unsweetened shredded coconut
In a double boiler, melt the chocolate.
Add the maple syrup and stir until thoroughly combined.
Transfer the chocolate to the lollipop molds. (Alternately, you can spread the mixture on the bottom of a small loaf pan to make dark chocolate bark.)
Let the lollipops set for about 2 hours, until solid.
Carefully remove the lollipops from the mold and sprinkle the coconut on Santa’s beard. Ho ho ho!
