Vegan Cookie Dough
Add your sugar, coconut oil, flax egg, and salt to a bowl and stir to combine. Next, add in the heat-treated flour and stir to combine. At this point the dough should hold together, but not be crumbly. Last, add in your chocolate chips and rainbow sprinkles and gently mix to combine.
Roll into a ball and set aside.
Once the dough is ready, make the popsicle base. Pour the coconut milk or cream into a small bowl and whisk to remove large clumps of cream. Then, add in the sifted powdered sugar and use a whisk to incorporate the sugar into the cream until there are no clumps. Next, add in your sprinkles and mini chocolate chips and gently fold them in using a spoon.
Making the pops!
Fill each popsicle mold with the coconut mixture until it is ⅓ of the way full. Next, add 2-3 "chunks" of cookie dough to each mold.Add to the freezer for 10 minutes. This step is important so the cookie dough stays evenly dispersed and does not all sink to the bottom.
After letting the pops sit in the freezer for 10 minutes, fill with the more of the coconut cream mix and 2-3 more chunks of cookie dough. Top each popsicle off with the coconut mixture for best results.
Insert the popsicle sticks into each mold and add to the freezer for 6-12 hours or up to 24 hours.
Removing the pops
Once the pops are ready to eat, take the mold from the freezer and run it under luke-warm water for 10-15 seconds. Wiggle the popsicle stick from side to side to gently remove. If the pops won't budge, gently run under water another 5-10 seconds. If you accidentally warm popsicles too much that they melt just add them back to the mold and stick them in the freezer for another hour before trying again. Eat immediately!
- To heat treat flour and make it safe to eat in cookie dough, spread an even layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350F for 5 minutes. Let it cool completely before adding it to your cookie dough. The safest option is to buy heat-treated flour, so please eat at your own risk.
- For storage you can store any uneaten popsicles in the freezer. I like to store mine in a large container and layer between parchment paper so they do not stick to each other.
