From the Pastry Dungeon: Apricot Breakfast Popsicles

As the temperature outside soars, everyone is desperately trying to stay cool. But what about those of us in the kitchen? What's it like for us in the summer? As you can imagine, standing over six to twelve open burners, a flat top, a grill, and a fryer is a sweaty endeavor even in the cooler months. That's where refreshing frozen popsicles come in. More

Bake the Book: Blueberry Moonshine Pops

Pairing sweet blueberries with punchy moonshine and a hit of lemon juice is a genius move, making these Blueberry Moonshine Pops one hell of a summer afternoon treat. The popsicle masterminds behind Brooklyn's People's Pops advise that these pops are best enjoyed on a hazy back porch in North Carolina with a bluegrass sound track but they also don't discount that they still taste pretty great in a steamy little apartment.

Scooped: Mango-Clove Popsicles

Mango, for me, is a quintessential summer flavor. Tart, sticky, and sweet, it is the fruity embodiment of the warmth and brightness of summer. Cloves, on the other hand, are darker, spicier, and deeply autumnal. The two together? Perfect for a warm summer evening in early March. More

Fany Gerson's Corn Paletas

One of the best things about working in markets is the wonderful people you meet. There's a particularly cute couple that are regulars at the Hester Street Fair and they love these paletas; they would buy several at a time last year to take home so they could enjoy for the week. I just bought some wonderful bicolor corn from the farmers market to make some and wanted to dedicated this recipe to them! More

Fany Gerson's Avocado Paletas

Avocado in an ice pop? You bet. People always seem to wonder about this one, but let me tell you—one bite and it will win you over. The paleta is slightly sweetened and gets its creaminess from the natural avocado oils rather than any dairy. It's wonderful on its own but for another layer of indulgence, dip it in some melted bittersweet chocolate. More

Fany Gerson's Roasted Apricot-Vanilla Paletas

I love stone fruit so much—especially apricots because they have a bit of tartness to them. I also love a little textural contrast in my sweets, and as I was making these I started thinking of those delicious Arab candies that are made with dried apricots and pistachios, so I thought—hey, maybe I should use that awesome combination. And it worked! More

Bake the Book: Bittersweet Pudding Pops

While we'll never be quite sure why the good people at Jell-O decided to discontinue their beloved frozen dessert, the Pudding Pop, those of us who grew up in the 80s will have to do with fond memories of those creamy chocolate and vanilla pops and their hilarious commercials featuring Bill Cosby. Gesine Bullock-Prado, the sweets loving force behind Sugar Baby has a soft spot for pudding pops and has been known to go through entire boxes of them when left to her own teenaged devices. More

4 Ways to Cool Down with Chocolate

Sitting in my AC-less apartment with the fan blowing hot air in my face, it's hard to think about anything except how frigging hot it is in the Northeast. Record-breakingly hot. Temper-breakingly hot. Now, this doesn't necessarily put everyone in the mood to scarf a chocolate bar, but here are four ways to get your cocoa fix while staying cool. More
