Ingredients

  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 cups pitted sweet dark cherries divided
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup sugar divided
  • 1 8 oz pkg cream cheese
  • 1 cup milk

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, mix the cookie crumbs with the melted butter. Set aside
  • To a blender, add 1½ cups pitted cherries, water and 2 tbsp sugar. Blender until pureed. Rinse the blender
  • To the blender, add cream cheese, milk and remaining 6 tbsp of sugar. Blend until smooth.
  • Divide the mixture in 2, and mix one half with the puréed cherries to make the cherry cream cheese mix.
  • Slice the remaining ½ cup cherries in half.
  • In half of the molds, put cherry slices and fill up with plain cream cheese mix. Fill up the other half of the molds with cherry cream cheese mix.
  • Fill up popsicle molds with cream cheese and fruit mix only 2/3rds of the way.
  • Top with cookie mixture and gently press into the mold.
  • Cover the popsicle mold and insert the popsicles sticks
  • Freeze for at least 8 hours, or overnight.
  • To serve, run popsicle mold under warm water for a 5-10 seconds to easily remove the popsicles

Notes

  • If you would like the popsicles to be more or less sweet, add or reduce the sugar, 1 tbsp at a time, to your liking.
  • You can substitute the graham cracker crumbs for other types of cookies like golden oreos, BelVita cookies, gingersnaps, shortbread cookies etc.
  • Cherries can be substituted for other fruits such as berries, peaches, mango etc. Use ripe fruits for maximum sweetness and flavor.
  • These pops melt pretty fast so only remove from the freezer when ready to serve.
