You can count on one hand how many ingredients you need for these homemade fudgesicles. A creamy, chocolatey, chilly treat to enjoy all summer long!
Beat the Heat
Growing up I loved eating Fudgesicles! They were my preference over any fruity ice popsicle that was around. I loved chocolate and couldn’t help but eat a few of these after hitting up the slip ‘n slide. Let’s be honest though, even as an adult these still are my favorite frozen treat!
Grab your kids, your friends, or yourself and make these! With ingredients commonly found at home, these are a no-brainer when you want a last-minute chilly chocolatey treat!
No Whisk for You
Because you don’t want air pockets in your Fudgesicles, it is important that you don’t use a whisk to stir the chocolate mixture or when you’re adding the whipped cream. The more air you introduce into the mixture, the more air bubbles you will get as your fudgesicles freeze. Use a flat spatula or spoon instead.
- Cook and Serve Chocolate Pudding- This is different from the box of instant chocolate pudding also found in your baking aisle. You will want to make sure you grab the box that says “Cook and Serve” on it.
- Milk- I use whatever is in my house, which is currently 2%.
More Details on Assembly
- Whipping the cream till you get soft peaks means when you pull the beaters up from the bowl the cream points up for a second then curls back down. If the peaks were stiff the cream would stay pointed up when beaters were removed from the bowl.
- If you don’t have popsicle molds, use paper cups and put popsicle sticks in them halfway through your freezing time. They are not the prettiest, but they work in a pinch!
This recipe is not only easy but inexpensive and delicious!
