Infusing alcohol into desserts has become one of the biggest trends to hit the food and beverage market. The latest creation to join the club is RumChata infused strawberries and cream popsicles, created by pastry chef Justin Fry.
Chef Fry has extensive experience with pastries and chocolate, having studied at Johnson & Wales Culinary School and interned in Washington D.C. Now serving as the Executive Pastry Chef at The Longview Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, Chef Fry created these boozy treats for an adult pool party hosted at the club.
“The desserts I created were after different drinks.” Chef Fry says, “I had an Irish coffee cupcake, a piña colada cake and a strawberries and cream popsicle.”
The popsicles were a massive hit at the party, so, Chef Fry decided to give his recipe for others to make at home. This simple recipe only takes 20 minutes to prepare and can be enjoyed at any adult party.
“If somebody is going to have a cocktail party or a summer party it’s a pretty versatile treat.” Chef Fry says.
These popsicles are a great way to impress guests without creating a mess in the kitchen. The recipe calls for strawberry puree mixed with brown sugar and RumChata mixed with cream and seasoning to create a delicious, creamy, alcohol-infused treat.
