Duro Frio

Duro Frio was the object of my childhood affection. It’s literal translation from Spanish is hard cold. My grandmother would make these in Mickey Mouse shaped popsicle molds. I of course have purchased the same mold set on eBay since to recreate them for my three sons, exactly as she did. The only variance from her recipe that I have added is chocolate shell drizzled on the outside. You can simply choose to leave it out if desired. Enjoy this recreated version of my grandmother’s duro frio! 

Duro Frio

Ingredients

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 cup sugar
3 egg yolks

Chocolate Shell

Prepare

1. Heat the sweetened condensed milk, heavy cream, and sugar in a saucepan on medium and stir occasionally for 10 to 15 minutes. Be careful not to let it boil over.

2. In a separate bowl whisk the egg yolks.

3. Temper the eggs by whisking a bit of the hot heavy cream into the eggs a little bit at a time until all of the cream is incorporated with the egg. This process avoids cooking the egg.

4. Pour duro frio mix into popsicle molds and freeze for 24 hours. 

5. Unmold the popsicles and drizzle with choclate shell. Refrigerate for 10-15 minutes.

6. Take out of freezer when ready to eat and enjoy! Makes about 10-12 popsicles.
