Chocolate Peanut Butter Popsicles

makes 12
recipe adapted from Homemade Decadence

2 cups whole milk
6 oz. milk chocolate coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 large peanut butter cookies, broken into pieces
2 peanut butter cups roughly chopped
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter, melted

In a medium saucepan over low heat, combine the milk, chocolate, sugar, cocoa powder and salt. Cook, whisking until the chocolate is melted, about 6 minutes. Remove pan from the heat. Whisk in the vanilla extract. Transfer mixture to a pitcher/measure cup refrigerate for 15-20 minutes.

Meanwhile, prep your popsicle molds by evenly distributing the chunks of the cookies and peanut butter cups. With a small spoon, drizzle peanut butter into each mold. Fill each mold with milk chocolate mixture. Freeze popsicles for 40 minutes and top each popsicle with a sprinkle of additional cookie crumbs and insert the sticks. Freeze popsicles until frozen through, about 6 hours.
