Finished with a drizzle of chocolate and a sprinkle of chopped roasted nuts, these caffe latte ice lollies are a heavenly, sophisticated sweet treat that's perfect for a hot summer's day - not to mention, they're healthy and a source of vitamin D. 

  1. Dissolve the coffee in 300ml (10 1/2fl oz) boiling water, then stir in the condensed milk and the milk. Leave to cool completely before pouring into 8 ice lolly moulds. Add the sticks and freeze for at least 3 hours or until frozen solid.
  2. Before you are ready to unmould the lollies, melt the chocolate, either in 30-second bursts in the microwave, stirring between each burst, or in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of just simmering water. Once the chocolate is melted, leave to cool slightly. It should be runny but not hot, otherwise it will slide off the lollies.
  3. Unmould the lollies one at a time by dipping briefly in hot water, then, working quickly, drizzle each with the chocolate and sprinkle on the nuts. Make sure the lollies don’t start to melt, as the chocolate will slide off. Once coated, the lollies can be returned to the freezer, though they are best eaten immediately. They will keep for up to 5 days in the freezer.
