Strawberry & Rose Popsicles

Think chocolate dipped strawberries.

One of my must-haves when I travel are the Godiva dipped strawberries.  This recipe brings back those memories, with a subtle hint of rose added for good measure.

Strawberry & Rose Popsicles

2 cups milk

1 cup cream

1/8 tsp vanilla bean powder

2 3/4 cup chopped strawberries

2/3 cup castor sugar

1 Tblsp lemon juice 

2 Tblsp rosewater 

In a medium pot heat the milk, cream & vanilla, bring to a simmer. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside for 30 min to infuse.

In a jug mix the strawberries, 2/3 cup castor sugar and lemon juice, stick blend. Refrigerate for 2 hrs or until required.

Make a crème anglaise, whisk the 6 egg yolks and 2 Tblsp castor sugar into the infusion. Cook while whisking until slightly thickened, the mixture will cost the back of a spoon.  Cover and chill for 2 hrs.

Mix the puréed strawberries and crème anglaise together, churn in an ice cream machine.  Set in desired mould. Freeze overnight.

Chocolate coating 

500g melted milk choc
