Good to know about the bags. I wrapped my pops in saran and put in a tupperware type of container, I loathe wrangling saran wrap.

 

Did the plastic wrap come off ok after more time in the freezer? 

 

I got some of these and heat seal them.  I know not everyone has a heat sealer, but the lip and tape bags drive me nuts.

@pastrygirl, I had no problem removing saran wrap from the bars. I kind of wrapped them burrito style and on the one end twisted the saran around the stick. This last batch of pudding pops I put in snack size zip top bags, to compare the two. The bags are better for throwing them loose in the freezer without an additional container.

Sweet potato & coconut pops dipped in white chocolate and topped with chopped walnuts

The sweet potato mix was very thick and I was too lazy to address it so I ended up with those unsightly bubble holes that I was also too lazy to disguise with a more artful application of chocolate 🙃

I got the idea from this sweet potato & coconut popsicle recipe although I based it more on Nikki's Sweet Potatoes from 101 Cookbooks that is a standby for me.   I intended to use the macadamia nuts that top that recipe but they tasted off so I went with the trusty walnuts.

What's the verdict? They sound intriguing.

 

I thought they were quite good.  I liked the combination of the fresh ginger that was the primary seasoning and the white chocolate topping.  The sweet potato flavor comes through nicely.

Forgot to add a nice pinch of salt to the mix as I've found that really enhances the nuttiness of the toasted coconut.
