Homemade Fudgsicles

Sorry for not posting in a while everyone!!! My family recently moved up near Mt. Rose  (Nevada) in between Lake Tahoe and Reno. It’s been very chaotic in the new house, so I haven’t had time to slip on the computer. I’ll share more about my family’s move soon, so let’s get started for this week with some yummy Homemade Fudgsicles. I love popsicles. Any kind, any size, any shape, any flavor, and even any gross ingredients like frog legs or pigeon toes. 😉 But this week I made yummy HOMEMADE fudgsicles. Why buy popsicles at the store if you can make ones that taste better?

I made the Fudgsicles in these cool popsicle molds that had a straw built into the mold to sip up any melted stuff.  My Mom just bought them at the grocery store- cheap.

It’s weird to see this chocolate sauce-type thing turn into a good ol’ fudgsicle. It has to be magic.

I <3 chocolate so much!!! It practically killed me to see the fudgsicles go into the freezer for a whole day!

These fudgsicles were out-of-this-world fantabulously yummy. Good thing I only made four or else I wouldn’t have been able to stop eating them!

There is the straw thing I was talking about on the molds. It’s an ingenious invention.

I’m ready to fight ninja-style with these fudgsicles. Come at me bad guys!

These fudgsicles were really good. I gave them out to some neighbors and they really enjoyed them. From now on I will NEVER buy fudgsicles from the store. I will make them myself forever! Does that sound like a good plan? I hope so. Okey dokey then. Now… prepare for a little 4th of July recipe action next week!!!  P.S. My Mom (RecipeGirl) snapped the photos in this post since I was busy preparing the fudgesicles!

Here is a short video showing you how to prepare these fudgsicles:

Homemade Fudgsicles

The most awesome chocolate popsicle ever.

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup whole milk, divided
  • 1 cup heavy cream + 3 tablespoons
  • 1/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together the cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of milk until smooth; whisk in the rest of the milk, cream, sugar, cocoa and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high, stirring constantly, and cook 1 minute.
  2. Transfer to a large measuring cup and stir in the vanilla. Pour into 4 popsicle molds and insert sticks. Freeze until the fudgsicles are solid, about 6 hours (or up to 1 week). To get them out of the molds, turn the molds upside down and run them under hot water to loosen the fudgsicles from the molds and pull them out. Enjoy!
