Chocolate fudgey goodness in the form of our summer favorite, popsicles! The Best Homemade Fudgesicles are made with 4 ingredients, and you will want to always have them in the freezer!
No way are these the prettiest popsicles you've ever seen. And no way are they the best ever photographed, but that doesn't stop them from being The Best Homemade Fudgesicles!
Who said food had to always be pretty? Trying to take pictures of popsicles is hard enough, but when you add in the fact that they are brown, AND there weren't really any ingredients to show with these since they weren't made from fruit, nor was this sponsored by cocoa powder...I seriously almost didn't share these with y'all because I wasn't happy with how they looked.
Then I put my negative thoughts aside, because I wanted to share the recipe that has changed how we eat popsicles.
I can't buy normal fudgesicles in the store because...corn syrup. :-/ I looked up recipes, and the only thing I could find was for pudding pops.
Pudding has a time and place for popsicles, but for fudgesicles, the texture is all wrong when you add pudding in the mix. So I searched and searched some more.
I ended up looking through cook book after cook book, and finally found something that I could at least change up and work with.
That's where these fantastically tasty bad boys came in to play! The recipe makes 10. I have two popsicle molds that I use for this recipe, and I would have loved to have shown you them sitting pretty in the back ground of some of these photos...but those three fudgesicles that made their debut...they were the only ones left!
Don't judge. It's been hot here, and we can't get enough of these! As a matter of fact, I have another popsicle recipe that I'm going to share with y'all, in the molds now, and even though we love that recipe as well, this one is our favorite by far to make.
What are fudgesicles made of?
- cocoa powder
How do you make fudgsicles without pudding?
- combine ingredients into a blender and blend until combined.
- pour into popsicle molds and freeze for at least 6 hours.
Can I make vegan fudgesicles?
Sure. Just swap out the ingredients! Almond milk works great in this recipe.
How long do fudgesicles last?
These will keep for about a month in the freezer. You can remove them from the molds, or leave them intact.
To remove them from their molds - run under warm water for a few seconds. Wrap them in parchment paper, and store in a freezer safe zip top bag.
How do I make popsicles or the best homemade fudgesicles without a popsicle mold?
You can use single serve yogurt containers. Just wash them once you've eaten your yogurt, and use them for popsicles.
You can also use small paper cups.
When using DIY molds, like about, freeze your liquid for 2 to 3 hours. Simply place the popsicle sticks or paper straws into your semi frozen liquid, and freeze until solid.
You can tear the paper away from the popsicle when ready to eat. If you're using the yogurt containers, simple run them under warm water to unmold.
HERE ARE SOME OF OUR FAVORITE POPSICLE RECIPES:
- 2 cups milk
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- ⅓ cup agave nectar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- In a blender of food processor mix together the milk, cocoa powder, agave nectar, and vanilla, until combined.
- Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for at least 6 hours, or until completely frozen. I like to freeze them over night.
