Tuesdays With Dorie – Esquimaux Pops for Grown-Ups

So yeah. Couldn’t get them out of the mold. The handles came right out of the mold. My husband tried running it under warn water, but then only half of one pop came out, just like Kara’s! We had to use a spoon to dig the rest out of the mold.

Don’t get me wrong… these are incredibly delicious (I used Chambord), and I opted to leave small chunks of chocolate, which is a fun contrast to the creamy silky-ness of this mousse. However, were I to do this again (and I probably will), I would make small ramekins of the mousse with a hard crack surface to mimic creme brulee. This recipe yielded 7 pops, but I would probably decrease the yield and make 4 slightly larger servings… when you scoop it out into a bowl there really isn’t that much in there. 

I am curious to see if anyone else had luck with these as pops…

  1. So funny – THAT is the exact mold I bought at the dollar store in France! I had to run them under water and let them sit for a while and then they kinda sorta came out… Better luck next time?

    I did not have an opportunity to make these but I feared them not coming out. I really like Mardi’s second try at small balls with covered chocolate. I think I will try those. Glad they tasted good.

    Your experience with the pops mirrors that of most people. I got lucky and mine came out. They were delicious weren’t they.
