Does this recipe work with canned pineapple, or fresh?
You can use either.
What are some tips for making these frozen chocolate covered pineapple pops?
The key to making these pineapple popsicles is that the pineapple needs to be completely dried with paper towels so the chocolate sticks to them.
Freezing the pineapple pieces after the sticks are inserted (and before they’re dipped in chocolate) is also important.
How long will these frozen pineapple treats store in the freezer?
I like to wrap mine individually in small treat bags (but it’s not completely necessary), and then freeze.
They will keep in the freezer for up to 6 weeks, unwrapped, but for 3 months wrapped.
