Happy Goth Pops

berries + glitter

It’s Popsicle Week, guys. It’s maybe the most wonderful time of the year, or at the very least, the most wonderful time of the summer. Billy from Wit & Vinegar is the genius behind the whole thing, and we thank Based Billy for this gift he has bestowed upon us. It’s super fun to see what everyone comes up with each year, and this time around I got to make a Pinterest board for work with everyone’s awesome pops on it, so be sure to check that out, too. I wish I had more time to make a second set of pops this year, but I have been S-W-A-M-P-E-D and there are not enough hours in the day. Oh well. You’ll have to survive on the pops from 2014, which were these Almond Butter Popsicles, or the pops from 2013, which were these Vietnamese Coffee Pops, or just these Cherry Cheesecake Paletas that I made for fun. I’ve got to remember to get more use out of my popsicle molds before summer is over again. Thankfully, all the geniuses in the blogosphere have given me tons of ideas and I’ll certainly come up with a few things after perusing the over 65 (!) recipes that were posted this year. Billy, you’ve basically got an army of popsicle warriors now – congrats.

For some reason, I could not shake the idea of ~Happy Goth Pops~ from my head. After the jump, you’ll see what I’m talking about specifically, but I thought it’d be really funny to make popsicles that happy goth ravers would want to eat. I don’t know why. Don’t try to understand it. But here we are, with these moody, dark berry popsicles covered in sparkly, edible glitter and a drizzle of white chocolate. I had a leftover can of cream of coconut from a shoot at work, so I blended that deliciousness up with juicy summer berries to make a popsicle that under-the-bridge raver goths would love. The edible glitter really takes these home, and if you don’t have any, just do yourself a favor and go to any specialty baking shop and get some. It’s so fun. Sure, your apartment may be covered in a fine dusting of sparkles for a few days after you play with it, but that’s no matter. You’re just making your living space more fun and festive. You can really use any berries in this, because cream of coconut is delicious and goes well with just about any fruit, but I hope you’ll get a little dark with me and make some happy goth pops for yourself. Next thing you know, you’ll be waving glow sticks around and wearing bondage pants. You’re welcome.

Happy Goth Pops
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 10 popsicles
If you were a happy goth, you'd want to eat these berry popsicles.
  • 2 cups blackberries + blueberries
  • 1 14-ounce can cream of coconut
  • 1 teaspoon edible glitter (optional but fun), plus more for finishing
  • 1 cup white chocolate, for decoration
  1. Blend together your berries and cream of coconut. Add in your edible glitter and blend again. Pour your mixture into 10 popsicle molds, place your popsicle sticks in and freeze for at least 6 hours, preferably overnight.
  2. Run your popsicle molds under a little warm water to loosen them up, being careful not to get the actual popsicles wet. Microwave a little white chocolate, place it in a baggie with the tip cut off, and drizzle a little white chocolate over the popsicles (I like to put mine on a cold sheet pan to keep them from melting while I do this). Sprinkle with a little edible glitter and TA-DA! You're ready to eat like a happy goth would in the summertime.

    Can I ask where you got your mold from??

    • Kelli says:

      I have the same one. I got it on Amazon for $16. Just look for Norpro frozen ice pop maker. From trial and error I don’t freeze my pops with the top on, the sticks move or something during freezing and it makes the top/lid a huge pain to remove.
