The Summer Comes Undone: Coconut Chocolate Popsicles

Everybody is at work or camp, except me, and I made coconut chocolate popsicles.

And yes, I ate two...

while I listened to this song, really loud, twice: The Summer - Yo La Tengo

Coconut Chocolate Popsicles
Makes 5 big popsicles

1 13.5-ounce can coconut milk (not low-fat, come on)
1 cup dark chocolate chips or chunks
1 tablespoon or more cocoa powder
1 tablespoon or more maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Heat coconut milk in a saucepan on medium heat until it bubbles a little. Add chocolate chips or chunks and whisk to melt and blend. Whisk in 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon maple syrup, and vanilla. Make sure it's all smooth and combined, turn off heat, and taste. Add more cocoa powder or maple syrup if you want.

Cool ten minutes or so, whisk again, pour into popsicle molds, and freeze at least four hours.

Save some for the others if you can.
