We may still have over a foot of snow to melt outside and it may still be technically winter but it doesn’t have to be summer to enjoy a fudge pop! Ice cream is perfect year round. Winter isn’t stopping me from enjoying this yummy treat. It’s basically frozen hot chocolate on a stick. Awesome really.
What’s even better about it is just how simple it is to make. A few basic ingredients are required plus popsicle molds of some variety. Don’t worry if you don’t have hard popsicle molds, you can easily substitute dixie cups and wooden popsicle sticks! So easy. And yes… they taste great! They truly do taste like frozen hot chocolate.
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp butter (unsalted)
In a saucepan, over medium heat combine all ingredients. Cook and stir for roughly 5 minutes or until the butter is fully melted. Remove from heat, let sit for at least 15-20 minutes.
Prep your molds, whether it be by pushing them into their bases or having cups sitting within a small baking pan - a loaf pan would probably be perfect for the dixie cup method!
For easier pouring I transferred my liquid to a large glass measuring cup. Using a funnel positioned over one of the cups or molds, begin carefully pouring the chocolate liquid being sure not to over fill. Repeat with remaining cups until the liquid is used up. Top off with sticks. Transfer to the freezer until fully frozen, 3-4 hours or overnight.
To remove fudgesicles from molds, hold plastic molds under warm water until the fudgesicle slides out easily. Paper cups should be able to be torn off.
