Try these espresso-based caramel latte pops from Krystina Castella’s “Pops!” ——— CARAMEL LATTE POPS Start to finish: 6 hours, 15 minutes (15 minutes active) Makes about 8 pops, depending on mold size 6 to 8 shots freshly brewed espresso 4 1/2 cups milk 1/4 cup caramel sauce 1/4 cup finely diced soft caramel candies In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and stir well. Pour the mixture into pop molds. Alternatively, divide the mixture between espresso cups. Cover each cup with plastic wrap and insert a wooden pop stick through it at the center of each cup.
