My most recent foodie TV show obsession is Unique Sweets, which features innovative treats made around the U.S. and usually includes the creation process of the most popular item(s). They don't typically give the recipes (so jerks like me don't steal their genius ideas, I'm sure), but they do give the ingredients and most are complicated enough that I wouldn't try to guess. I should say, all with the exception of a recent episode featuring, Suck It Sweets, based in California.

They basically make gourmet popsicles (genius - how did I never think of this!) and two pops seemed easy enough and sounded delicious enough, that I decided to give it a whirl. The first one is a peach cobbler type of pop, that is basically a peach pie filling frozen, then rolled in graham cracker crumbs and the second is a creamy butterscotch pop rolled in crushed corn chips and tastes like Cap'n Crunch and milk. I am still not sure which one is my favorite, but who says you have to choose! Below is my guess-timation of the recipes, add your own flair and enjoy!

Peach Pie Pop
Makes about 12 (depending on molds)

popsicle molds
popsicle sticks
6-7 Peaches, cut into bite-sized pieces (peel on)
juice from half a lemon
1/4 cup (heaping) brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 cups graham cracker crumbs


Put all ingredients (except graham cracker crumbs) into a pot and cook on low for 15 - 20 minutes. You want peaches to be soft, but not mushy.

Let cool completely. Spoon mixture into molds and put in freezer, let sit for about an hour, then put in popsicle sticks. Should be completely frozen in 8 hours (depending on freezer).

When popsicles are done, put graham cracker crumbs on a plate for rolling. To get popsicles (bastard popsicles!?) out of the molds, I had the most luck with running mine under water a few times, then running a butter knife along the sides, although it took a little effort. Depending on how well each picked up the graham cracker crumbs, I ran some under cold water quickly, then rolled and bagged them. You can go cute with a pastry bag and ribbon or an old ziplock bag, no one will care, trust me.

Butterscotch Pop
Makes about 16 (depending on molds)

popsicle molds
popsicle sticks
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 can of coconut milk
5 cups of half and half or whole milk
2 standard bags of hard butterscotch candies
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 bag of Fritos or other corn chip

Unwrap butterscotch candies and grind to a fine consistency using a food processor.

Add 2 cups of ground candy to pot with all ingredients (except Fritos).
Heat on low until candy has dissolved.
Let cool and then pour into molds.

Put in freezer and check every hour to see if sticks can be inserted (for me about 1.5 hours). Should be completely frozen in 8 hours (depending on freezer). In the meantime, you can grind the whole bag of Fritos into a fine crumb consistency, using food processor.

Same process as the peach pops, remove from molds and roll into the salty goodness of the corn chips.
