A mountain of store-bought vanilla ice cream can be dipped and double-dipped in rich chocolate to your heart's content. Here, nonpareils are clustered at the chilly summit, but these pops could also be dressed up in chopped nuts, coconut, or crushed cookies or candies.
Insert sticks of the completed pops into Styrofoam or floral foam to hold the pops upright. Ice cream with a lower fat content, which is less expensive, freezes harder and stays on the stick better. Uncoated pops will keep in their molds for 2 weeks. Once dipped, the pops will keep in the freezer for up to 1 week.
