In a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, warm the sugar, stirring constantly, until it begins to melt, about 5 minutes. Cook, stirring, until the sugar melts and turns golden amber, about 3 minutes. Stirring constantly, carefully add the butter, milk, and cream. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring, until the mixture is completely smooth and returns to a bare simmer, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.

In a heatproof bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, almond and vanilla extracts, and salt until doubled in volume, about 2 minutes. Slowly pour about half of the warm milk mixture into the egg mixture, whisking until smooth. Pour the mixture into the saucepan and place over medium heat. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, until the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of the spoon, 1-2 minutes. Do not let it boil.

Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl and cool completely over an ice bath (see page 14).
If using conventional ice pop molds, divide the mixture among the molds. Cover and freeze until solid, at least 4 hours or up to 3 days. If using sticks, insert them in the molds when the pops are partially frozen, after about1 hour, then freeze until solid, at least 3 more hours.

If using an instant ice pop maker, follow the manufacturer's instructions to fill the molds and freeze the pops.

Pop Swap

For chocolate-nut crunch ice pops, dip the finished ice pops into melted chocolate and then immediately into crushed nut brittle. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze until ready to serve.
