‘How I Met Your Mother’-Inspired ‘Sumbitches’: Chocolate, Peanut Butter, & Caramel Popsicles
Oh-Em-Gee, You Guys. It’s finally Popsicle Week, and I cannot contain my excitement.
Though I could explain what Popsicle Week is, exactly, to those of you who have been living under a rock for the past couple of years… I’d much rather describe this breakthrough recipe in great (unnecessary) detail. So, hop on over to Billy’s site if you’re curious about the whole shebang!
Now. Onto the ‘Sumbitches’.
First of all, I would like to sincerely apologize for the not-so-nice word in this post… you know what I mean. I typically refrain from swearing, both on Lace & Lilacs and in everyday life. These popsicles, however, are worth making an exception for. You see, it all began with an episode of How I Met Your Mother – Season 9, Episode 1, to be precise. Billy had recently set the Popsicle Week 2015 plans into motion, and at the time I was nearing the end of HIMYM (an amazing show with a majorly disappointing finale, just sayin’). When Tracy (The Mother) offered Lily a container of her delicious ‘Sumbitches’ cookies, I knew immediately that I just had to recreate them in popsicle form. For the clueless folk out there, here’s the clip:
So, as Lily herself said in the scene where she meets The Mother… ‘Sumbitches’ consist of chocolate, peanut butter, and caramel. A rather odd combination… but after giving it a moment of thought, it kinda sounds just wonderful, no? And so, I set out to create the perfect Tracy & Lily approved popsicle. I think they would be proud.
Each layer comes together in mere minutes, and they’ll set in any order… the ones pictured are peanut butter/chocolate/caramel. Hurrah!
Umm, why are you still here? Go get your Sumbitches started!
xoxo! I’ll be back soon,
