Chocolate-Lychee Ice Pops

Can you see the Lychee bites there? :-)
Since last two weeks, I had literally no time for myself, particularly for a new recipe post due to extensive travelling and preparing for my little one's 5th birthday bash. As mentioned in my earlier post, we had a tour of Mahabalipuram and Pondicherry based from Chennai. This meant that for a whole week we were visiting one tourist spot to another. The places that we liked most are the Sea Coast temples, Paradise Beach and the T Nagar in Chennai ( For extensive shopping). 


And as soon as I returned home, became busy with Son's birthday preparation starting from Inviting guests,Venue, menu and theme selection. Hiring decorators ( selected Angry Birds theme as it is going viral these days). And finally take care of all the guests ensuring they had a good time in the party. Now that all the hustle and bustle is over, I am posting this dessert as a cooler for this summer. As litchi is my favourite fruit and chocolate is a popular flavour, I chose to make a combination out of it. So here goes..


Ingredients:
1/2 cup Heavy cream
250 gms of Semisweet Chocolate
1/3 cup Powdered sugar
1 tbsp unsweetened Cocoa powder
3/4 cup chopped Lychees /Litchi
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp chocolate essence


Method:
In a saucepan combine heavy cream, sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch and heat on a low flame. Now pour the chopped pieces of chocolates and melt them on low heat by continuously stirring until smooth. With a wooden spatula stir it until you get smooth, silky texture. Keep aside to cool a bit.


Keep it aside and allow it to cooling to normal temperature. Then add chopped lychees /litchi and chocolate essence and stir well. Carefully pour this mixture into desired molds and place it in freezer for overnight. Enjoy !!
