Ingredients

  • 4 sticks Yoplait Gogurts
    or about 2 cups of your favorite type of yogurt
  • 500 grams chocolate 70% depending how thick you layer on the chocolate) You can substitute with white chocolate as well
  • confetti sprinkles optional garnish (you can use chopped nuts, fruits, candies, sugared edible flowers or anything your heart fancies)

Instructions

  • Freeze your Yoplait Gogurts overnight in freezer. Other alternatives are to scoop your favorite brand of yogurt into ice cube trays and freeze over night. If you want tiny little yogurt nibbles, you can put your yogurt in a pastry bag and squeeze small little dots on a parchment paper lined baking tray and freeze over night.
  • Break up the chocolate into smaller pieces, put into a microwave safe dish. Put your microwave on the 600 watt lower setting. Melt chocolate in the microwave very slowly at 5 second intervals and stir every time. It took approximately 40 seconds for my chocolate to melt. Do not let it overcook as a matter of fact take it out of the microwave before it is completely melted and let the stirring and the heat generated from the dish melt the chocolate the rest of the way. Make sure you are working in a cool, non-humid atmosphere. Turn on the aircon. Do not get moisture anywhere near your chocolate or over heat it the microwave or your chocolate will seize up. (If your chocolate does seize up sometimes if you put in a little soft butter it will bring it back to life but not always.)
  • Set your chocolate aside and allow to cool to room temperature. Gather your supplies: flat plate lined with parchment paper, spoons, toothpicks, sprinkles and garnishes that you desire.
  • Take the frozen yogurt out of the freezer. If you are using the "Yoplait Gogurt" tubes, cut into 1.5 inch sections and remove the plastic. If using using the yogurt frozen dots very carefully remove them from the parchment paper. If using the ice cube tray method, very carefully remove the yogurt from ice cube trays. (Run a little warm water on the bottom of the tray just to get them loosened) Put the yogurt pieces back into the freezer.
  • Use a toothpick to pick up a yogurt piece with your non dominant hand. Use your dominant hand to drizzle the melted chocolate on all sides of the yogurt so the it is completely covered. You will need to work quickly as the chocolate hardens quickly so immediately put on your sprinkles, candies, Rosmarinkrokant or whatever garnish your little heart desires as soon as possible. I only take out one yogurt piece out of the freezer at a time and once I am done covering it with chocolate and garnishing it I put it on a parchment covered flat plate and put it back in the freezer. Enlist your kids to help with the process as they will love their much needed 15 minute break from those horrid poem analysis projects, physic problems or powerpoint presentations.
  • Allow these little chocolate yogurt bites to freeze at least 2 hours, if your kids can wait that long. Bring a few of the little treats out on a dish and leave them alone at room temperature for 5-10 minutes, just so that the inside yogurt is creamy and delicious.
  • Enjoy these delightful frozen chocolate yogurt bites any time you need a little bite sized pick me up treat.
