Napoleon Yogurt Melts

 

 

The week before we left Floridato move toBahrainwe had to make a trip down toOrlandoto ship one of our cars.  We decided while we were there, it would be a good opportunity to head to Sea World one last time. 

After we spent a few hours having every detail of our SUV inspected for shipment, we headed over to Sea World where we spent several more hours.  At the end of the day, we headed back to the hotel and my husband decided to take C to pick up some dinner.  While they were gone, M and I decided to check out the hotel swimming pool.  When my little fishy and I finally made it back to the room, the boys had already finished dinner and my husband was letting C finish a large coke for dessert.  Before you react, rest assured that I had the same response: “WHAT?!?!?  YOU LET HIM HAVE COKE?!?!?”  My husband, the fun parent, responded, “Relax….we’re on vacation.”

Well, many hours later, M was knocked out and my husband and I were both exhausted.  But guess who was still awake, jumping up and down on the bed.  Yup, C was still going full speed.  At first my husband was amused, but as the hours (yes, hours) past and my little “soda gulper “was still no where near sleep, my husband thought this wasn’t so funny anymore.  Sometimes it feels good when you don’t even have to say, “I told ya so…”

So what in the world does this little story have to do with these yogurt melts?  Well when I made that Turkish Coffee Ice Cream, the kids were desperate to have a scoop.  Ha!  Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice… 

Needless to say, I thought it was only fair to make them something too.  I thought I’d try three different flavors.  The chocolate was the most popular, but the kids enjoyed the other flavors as well. 

 

 

 

Napoleon Yogurt Melts
 
Recipe Type: Dessert, Snack
Ingredients
  • 3 cups yogurt
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup strawberries, stems removed
  • honey to taste
Instructions
  1. Divide yogurt into thirds.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a double broiler. Allow the chocolate to cool slightly and mix in 1/3 of the yogurt until blended. Sweeten with honey if desired.
  3. Puree the strawberries until smooth. Mix strawberries with 1/3 of the yogurt until combined. Sweeten with honey if desired.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment. Put each flavor of yogurt into a piping bag. Pipe out circles on the parchment lined sheet.
  5. Freeze 3-4 hours, or until the melts are hard. Serve immediately.
 
Notes

If you don’t want to serve the melts as soon as they are frozen, you can place them in an air tight container and they keep for up to 1 week. I would recommend each flavor in its own container, or else they may stick together and blend a bit.

 

This idea came from One Good Thing by Jillee’s Yogurt Dots

Charlene williamson - Yogurt drops! They look and sound fantastic!! We had a cousin, who unbeknown to us, was a sugar devil (our term). Ate a two hand fulls of M&Ms at 7:00pm and was still zooming around the house at 4:00am! Needless to say, she was not invited for another sleep-over. Her Mama acted surprised, but her Dad later told us they didn’t keep a y sweets out where she could get to them.

Ramona - What a great treat! I bet my kids would love these too. :)

PS.. I think Sea World is one of my favorite parks to visit.

Nami | Just One Cookbook - How funny. I can relate to the coke situation, but in our case it was Thai Iced Tea. Both my husband and I love Thai iced tea, so we always order. One time our son wanted to “try” and my husband let him sip. Since then, he always want to drink and one point my husband let our son share one Thai iced tea with our daughter. You know how the story goes. I was against the idea from the beginning… =D

I can’t wait to try these yogurt melts. Such a healthy (sort of) and yummy treats! I know the kids will love these!

Tiffany - How fun! And just a great take on a classic! :D

Lacy @ NYCityEats - This is great! I would have never known how to make yogurt metls and what an awesome little treat these are! I’d totally pick through to get all of the strawberry ones, not just for the flavor, I’m a total sucker for all candies pink/red colored.

I also wanted to let you know that I’ve given you & your blog an award. http://nycityeats.com/wordpress/4640/smores-mug-cake-versatile-blogger-awards/ I think your blog is awesome & want people to know it! Don’t feel any pressure to follow the “rules”, not sure where they came from anyway!

Kelly @ Inspired Edibles - You’re so creative with your real food desserts Alyssa… the fruit leather was gorgeous and now your yogurt drops; wonderful! Keep up the fresh ideas and inspiration; I’m loving it.

Ann - These look terrific! I would have never thought to make YOGURT bites!

Kankana - The drops look so cute and the recipes sounds easy and doable!

alyssa - They were super easy!

alyssa - Thank you so much, Kelly! I won’t lie, my kids eat their fair share of junk, but I try to make up for it when I can :)

alyssa - Thank you so much, Lacy! I love pink too :) And thanks for the award, I’m going to go check it out now!

Maggie @ Kitchie Coo - This is a hilarious story…in hindsight of course. Sounds like something my husband has actually done, but to our friends’ kids, so we’re likely to get a payback at some point I’m sure. Gulp.
What a GREAT idea for the yogurt drops! Anna would love these and such a quick, healthy and easy treat. Awesome.

Tina@flourtrader - Well I am glad it just wasn’t you that had to suffer the long hours with your kid after that coke. I am sure the hubs will think twice about sharing coke with the son-even on vacation!
The melts do look like a great snack, also these little gems can double for chips in baked goods too! Great recipe!

Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love. - This is such a GREAT idea, Alyssa!! How perfect for the kiddos, and heck, even the adults! And so much better than Coke :P
