Chocolate-Dipped Pineapple Popsicles
This chocolate-dipped pineapple recipe is supposed to have been sponsored by DOLE® Canned 100% Pineapple Juice via Mode Media.
Fourth of July weekend is coming up. It’s promising to be super hot, and that means I’m going to want something refreshing for a treat. I love red, white and blue as much as any of us (and love to make patriotic recipes!), but sometimes what I want for our favorite summer holiday is simply a refreshing frozen treat. We’ve always got DOLE® Canned 100% Pineapple Juice in the house- we use it for so many things- so making some fun ice pops just in time for our holiday cookouts was an easy step. What to do with those pops was another story… I wanted something a little more “oh wow” that was also refreshing, and so these chocolate-dipped pineapple ice pops came to fruition. (See what I did there)?
DOLE® Canned 100% Pineapple Juice is naturally gluten-free, so these are great for our get-togethers- we have several friends who are gluten-free and I really try to have fun recipes to share and serve that ALL of us can indulge in together. The juice is also non-GMO, which makes many happy too!
DOLE® Canned 100% Pineapple Juice (We usually have the 6 pack of 6-oz cans around, but you can get this in a 46-oz can as well)
Small chunks of fresh pineapple
12-oz bag of dark chocolate melting wafers
1 cup peanuts
Fill your ice pop molds halfway with your pineapple juice
Place about 5 pieces of fresh pineapple into your ice pop molds
Fill the rest of the way up with your pineapple juice
Stick a piece of pineapple into the end of your ice pop stick and place your stock into the bottom center of the ice pop mold
Freeze for 4-6 hours
Place the plastic part of your mold under running hot water, wiggle your sticks, and side your ice pop out
In a small plastic bag, crush your peanuts and set aside
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt your chocolate wafers on 50% power for 3-4 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted
Dip your pineapple ice pop into the melted chocolate and set on a piece of parchment paper
Sprinkle with crushed peanuts and let harden
Enjoy with family and friends! This is such a sweet, refreshing treat that will please all ages but it’s also ok if you save these just for the adults.

What a perfect summer treat! My kids love pineapples and anything dipped in chocolate just tastes better, right? I love the chunks of pineapples inside the popsicles, great idea! Thanks!
Question: How do you make pineapple even tastier? Answer: Dip it in chocolate of course! These look delicious and it doesn’t hurt that pineapple is my eldest son’s favorite! Thanks for sharing your recipe with us at Merry Monday this week!

I love pineapples so I can’t wait to make your chocolate dipped pineapple popsicles. I think I’ll make some without the chocolate so I can eat a few.

Awesome recipe. Thanks for sharing. We’ll be making these on the weekend. It would be nice to sit on the porch and cool off with these yummy popsicles!
I love pineapple and I love chocolate, but I’m not sure of the combo of the two! But I’m curious enough to try this recipe!

These looks and sound refreshing and delicious. The kids have been wanting me to make some pineapple upside down cake but I think I’d rather make these.
