Summer’s Best Guilt-Free Mint Chocolate Chip Popsicles

Two words…mint chocolate. Now you know the key to my heart. Give me chocolate and I’ll be your friend….give me MINT chocolate and I’ll be your best friend! But really.

It’s almost too hot to do anything outside for too long. So I’ve spent some time inside in the kitchen whipping up something special, I bring you my summer guilt-free mint chocolate chip popsicles. That’s right, guilt free…well for the most part. (wink wink!)
