Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine 1 cup boiling water, tea bag and ginger and let steep for 5 to 10 minutes. (The longer the tea steeps, the stronger the chai flavor.)

  • Meanwhile, combine the remaining 1/3 cup boiling water, chocolate, honey and cocoa in a food processor. Let stand 1 minute so the chocolate softens. Process until very smooth. Add cream cheese and process until incorporated, scraping down the sides once or twice. Discard the tea bag; add the tea to the chocolate mixture and pulse to combine.

  • Freeze in six 3-ounce (or similar-size) pop molds until solid, about 6 hours. To unmold, dip the forms into warm water for 10 to 20 seconds. If necessary, use a table knife to break the vacuum and pry the pops loose.


Make Ahead Tip: Freeze for up to 1 month.
