Chocolate Covered Strawberry Popsicles

A little update before we get to this incredible post. I lost my phone. It’s somewhere in the ocean.

I was walking my fussy son on the beach, while my family and I were on a little vacation in Hilton Head. I was a single parent for the week since my husband had to work. So, I had Liam in the moby wrap and had taken a couple of photos of his first beach walk. I slipped it into what I thought was the solid pocket of the moby. Yeah, it wasn’t. It slipped out somewhere while I was wading in the surf. I lost ALL of my photos from the last 4 months…including all of the precious photos of my darling son. It sucks. Just saying. Moral of the story, back up your phone regularly.

My phone is how I am connected to the world. It’s how I communicate with all of you amazing people through the blog, facebook, instagram, twitter, pinterest, etc. I hope that I’ll be back up and running with a phone eventually, but until then, bare with me….and enjoy this refreshing post!

Remember this magic shell?

Yeah, I took it a step further.

These just may be my greatest creation ever.

I just recently purchased a popsicle mold. Let me just say, it’s an excellent investment, especially for the summertime.

It’s so easy to whip up a batch of frozen treats and only takes a few hours of freezing before you get to enjoy them!

These beauties are made purely out of fresh strawberries, then dipped in the amazing dark chocolate magic shell. They are our new favorite go-to dessert in the freezer for a quick and healthy sugar satisfaction!

So, while it’s summertime and fresh produce is at its peak, go ahead and whip some of these popsicles up and thank me later!

  1. Oooooh…such a bummer about your phone! But hopefully you can enjoy a little vacation from the social media world for a few days. 🙂

    These look amazing! I would never have thought of magic shell for popsicles — perfect!!

  2. Oh no, SUCH a huge bummer about your phone and the lost photos. I really need to get better about backing mine up. I love these popsicles! Strawberries and chocolate is a match made in heaven 🙂

  3. That SUCKS about your phone and all the pictures, I’m sorry!!!!! Ugh, my heart hurts for you losing all those precious first pictures of him.
    We lost EVERY SINGLE ONE of our honeymoon pictures as we were backing them up after our honeymoon, so I sorta know how you feel when such precious, once in a lifetime memories, are just LOST!

    But your popsicles look amazing 🙂

  4. Oh, my I just want to cry for you! I can’t imaging loosing newborn photos!

    The popsicles look delicious though. I guess I have a good reason to go get some molds now!

  5. So delicious! I have to try this!!

    Sorry about your phone. I’ve had mine stolen before. It’s pretty aggravating that you don’t have your photo memories with you anymore.. I get it 🙁

  6. I didn’t check anything yesterday and was confused by your latest Instagram post when I woke up today. I’m so happy that you got your phone back! And these popsicles look amazing. I love that they don’t have sugar other than what’s in the magic shell! And they look super pretty too. 🙂

  7. So sorry to hear about your phone! I wouldn’t even know how to call my parents without my phone because I don’t know their phone number by heart. (how sad is that!!)

    But these popsicles are beautiful, and I can tell they would taste amazing!

  8. I’ve been reading your blog for a while but never commented before. But, I used this magic shell on popsicles I made from banana pureed with a little coconut milk and it was so good I had to comment. I’m thinking peanut butter & banana pops + magic shell would be even better! Thanks for the great idea.

    1. Hey Barb,

      I’ve modified the instructions to make it more clear. Hopefully that helps! 😀 Thanks for pointing that out! Best, Caroline

  9. We lost my husband’s phone and about 8 months of pictures. We found this nice website/app any time you take a picture on your phone it automatically uploads it to their website where you can download a full version of the picture or video. I’m always forgetful about backing up things and this makes one less thing to worry about.

    1. That’s exactly what I signed up for as soon as I got a new phone. Luckily I was able to recover all of my photos from my old phone, but my heart was racing there for a while! 😀 Thanks for the great tip Rebekah!

  10. Hi:) I can’t see the recipe for the chocolate:) it won’t let me go there. Would you mind posting it on here?

  11. These sound amaze-balls! I love the chocolate magic shell and use it all the time. I also make frozen banana softserve pretty often and have been experimenting with flavors. I recently tried using wine as the liquid to make the bananas move in my processor and then refroze in tupperware. It came out more scoop-able and super yummy. All that to say that if you replaced half or all of the water in your strawberries with wine? This might be a fabulous parents only treat! I think I’ll try it soon, both ways.

  12. I know this is nit-picky but it really irks me when I see a recipe that says – just three ingredients when one of those ingredients is a made product (or a mix). Some of us make everything from scratch. Making the magic shell only really adds 1 ingredient so why not say you can make these from 4 ingredients. I don’t follow your blog but found it because I was curious about the 3 ingredient chocolate covered strawberry pops.

    1. Hey Sara, That’s a very good point. I never said anywhere that there were just three ingredients in my post. The ingredients list contains just three things (the magic shell as one of them) because I wanted to share how to make the magic shell in a separate recipe instead of making the popsicle recipe any more complicated. I’ve found that simple recipes are the way to go. Plus, when I made these popsicles I already had the homemade magic shell waiting for me in the pantry, so it really only took those three ingredients. I apologize that the place that sent you here advertised that there were only three ingredients and wasn’t clear on the fourth. But, hey, if you make the magic shell and just keep it in your pantry for a ‘rainy day’, you’ll only need the three ingredients too! 😀 Have a great rest of your day! And thanks for visiting!

  13. Caroline, I just reread your post and realized you posted a link to the Norpro molds in the first place. I was so enamored with the pictures I must have skimmed through that text. :\ Thanks for replying anyway.

  14. I know how you feel. I was on vacation in California and my phone fell out of my oxygen bag. (It had a hole where you could see the gage) We backtracked everywhere we were and no one had seen it. When we called it, it went straight to voice mail so whoever found it turned it off. I was so disappointed that whoever found it was not an honest person. It was a small beach community area with a Police Dept on the beach so it would have been real easy to try to get it back to it’s rightful owner. I had pictures and videos of my deceased dog that were irreplaceable to me and lost forever. I can’t believe in this day and age where cell phones are peoples lives, that if you found one you wouldn’t go to some lengths to try and find the owner and return it. I know I would have as I was brought up to do onto others as you would have them do onto you. Not to mention if they had had an ounce of Christianity in them they would have at least turned it in to the Police Dept. Those who feel they “get away” with something forget there is one person who sees everything you do, God!

    1. Oh, I am so sorry to hear that Cynthia! You said it, though. I can’t even imagine not trying to find the owner. Since this happened, I daily back up my photos and data just incase. You never know if there will be an honest person out there. I just got lucky that the person who picked mine up returned it. They did say to me when I went to pick it up, that they thought about keeping it. Anything to make a buck…it’s a shame. I’m so thankful they were honest, though. Again, I’m so sorry they weren’t honest with your phone. So sad.

  15. Wow these look absolutely amazing!!
    I cant wait to make them and they look too pretty to be eaten, cant wait.
    P.s sorry to hear about your phone.

    1. I never had any issues, especially once they were dipped in chocolate. I would recommend thawing a little bit before biting into the popsicle, unless you just want to take small bites. They do get a bit hard in the freezer (or it’s possible that my freezer is too cold). 😀

  16. Made the Popsicle yesterday and the magic shell today. I added a small amount of agave to the purée because it was a little tart. Was only able to dip 4 pops in the magic shell because it turned more like hot fudge consistency. Having never made it before I tried to reheat it and it stayed pretty thick. The pops that I did make were beautiful and tasted great. I ended up having to spread the rest of the shell on one side of the pops that were left. I’m sure they’ll taste great too.

  18. These look amazing! Just curious…do you sweeten the strawberries at all? Just wondered if they would be too tart without. My boys would love these!

    1. I didn’t sweeten my strawberries (they were already really sweet and ripe from the summer crop), but if you make them during the winter, you might consider adding some honey for added sweetness. I hope you and your boys enjoy!

  19. Hi,
    I just found your beautiful recipe. I’ve never used magic shell before. I was wondering when you dip the popsicles in the magic shell does it harden instantly and are you able to put them back in the freezer? I’d love to make these for my kiddos but would want to make them earlier in day to surprise them with an after dinner treat:)

    1. Hi Chris, The magic shell hardens almost instantly. Then, I like to wrap them up and put them back in the freezer. Perfect after dinner treats! However, since it’s pure strawberries, I’d advice taking them out of the freezer a few minutes before serving so they can soften slightly, especially when feeding to children. Have fun!!!

  20. Thanks for your response Caroline. How do I print the recipe? I can’t seem to find a print button or one isn’t showing for me. Can’t wait to try these. Our strawberry stand is open and their strawberries are so sweet and yummy!!
