These popsicles should really be called creamsicles instead as they are based with a ready made whipped topping. Cooking with Janica has them dipped in a magic shell topping, but as for me, being a fan of tempered chocolate, I just had to temper up some real chocolate and go all the way. OMG, they were so delicious!
In my opinion, this is a grown-up recipe. You know, one you don't share with the kids! (LOL) But, if you want, I bet your kids will love them too!

Can help you lose weight?!? Yes it's true.
Chocolate for breakfast, believe or not, can help you burn calories faster, according to scientists. Namely, avoiding tempting things can cause psychological dependence, that is, a condition in which we constantly long for what we cannot have. But some studies have shown that if we eat something chocolate for breakfast, such as a good chocolate cake, it will stop our desire for chocolate during the day and help us get rid of unwanted pounds faster. Eating chocolate for breakfast will help us lower our weight and maintain the weight longer, according to researchers at Tel Aviv University.

A dreamy, chocolate-dipped dessert from a James Beard Award-winning pastry chef. Though the recipe is spread out over a few days, each step is surprisingly easy, making this the ideal make-ahead dessert to have ready in case last-minute guests—or late-night sugar cravings—come knocking at your door.
We prefer using tempered chocolate in this recipe as is encourages the creaminess with the custard! Besides, we temper chocolate for everything!

If you think that sounds intense, you’re right. These are intensely good, and intensely addicting.
