From the Recipe Box: Coffee & Kahlua Popsicles

by kitchenarian on July 3, 2011

I love espresso. I love a Starbucks latte. I love coffee ice cream. I love Kahlua. So what happens when you combine all of these amazing flavors together. What do you get? The perfect coffee summer treat!

Summer is about kicking back and relaxing a bit. I definitely believe that recipes should really coincide with the summer attitude – quick ,easy and fresh. OUT are the casseroles and slow cooking stews and IN are the fresh salads, anything grilled and, of course, frozen delights.

Here is a super simple popsicle recipe for the children at heart. Perfect for your next outdoor grilling party, make some fun popsicles for the kids and then surprise the parents with their own frozen cocktail treat. Recipe adapted from


2 cups brewed espresso
1/3 cup chocolate syrup
6 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons Kahlua

Mix all the ingredients together and pour into popsicle molds. Freeze several hours or overnight until solid.

This is a nice alternative to all the fruit pops that are around. I like everything in this and the fact that it is ice cold makes it all the better. Thanks for sharing this frosty treat!

Great idea. Where did you purchase the molds?


kitchenarian July 4, 2011 at 10:35 pm

I bought these many years ago from Williams-Sonoma.

Oh my yumminess!! This is wonderful! I can’t wait to have one of these… this has got to be the best popsicle recipe!

what a wonderful combination for Popsicles! definitely an adult treat, that’s taking ice coffee to a whole new level!

I could switch to one of these for breakfast instead of my cup of coffee. Of couse, the Kahlua might make me want to go back to bed, but what a great way to start the day!

What a great idea! And a cool way to get a burst of energy!

I am a huge coffee fan so I will have to try these soon. I have some very similar molds.

Great idea! This is definitely the perfect popsicle!

I love this idea of the push pops and the coffee/kahlua combination. Great presentation and fantastic for grown-up treats using the kahulua. 😉

Nicely done!

I love these!

I love this. But where did you did those push up molds??? I need some of those, so much cuter then the traditional popsicle mold.


kitchenarian March 30, 2012 at 8:30 am

I bought those popsicle molds years ago from Williams-Sonoma. I know that Sur la Table has some fun popsicle molds too!
