Salted Caramel Mocha Popsicles

Okay, all... so it is hot in the south! I am not complaining, but I am so happy that Melanie from Melanie Makes is taking over the blog today with these amazing & frosty Salted Caramel Mocha Popsicles!  I could use one (or maybe three!) of these right about now. ;) Be sure to pop over & check out her blog, you all.

I'm definitely not what you would call a coffee person.  I tried drinking it for a semester in college but I was putting so much stuff in it to make it drinkable that it pretty much defeated the purpose.  Then a year ago while leaving a favorite drink establishment, one of the employees offered me a caramel mocha that was a duplicate for an already filled order.  I took it to be polite figuring that once I walked out, I could pawn it off on my coffee loving husband to drink.

But the whipped cream cloud on top drizzled with caramel seduced me into taking a sip.  And I was a goner.  It turns out that I'm totally fine with mochas as mocha = chocolate! With the weather becoming warm, I've been treating myself to several iced mochas but I wanted something that I could enjoy at home. 

These popsicles are the answer! A mocha popsicle flavored with caramel and chocolate syrups, caramel creamer and whipped topping.  Even better?  One recipe makes enough popsicles to create a stash in my freezer, ready at a moments notice.
