Creamy Chocolate Fudge Pops

Are you ready for a recipe that will quickly become a summer staple? 

Ok, but really… I am not one to have popsicles on hand. My kid prefers creamy homemade ice cream vs the frozen fruit sticks, so we tend to skip this section of the grocery store. Unless the popsicles are chocolate. Which this recipe is! 

Chocolate Popsicle Ingredients:

  • Chocolate Chips
  • Brown Sugar
  • Cornstarch
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Vanilla Coconut Milk

I chose to to use sweetened coconut milk for this recipe. Mainly because we love it. However, you could easily substitute regular (I suggest whole milk) milk and a dash of vanilla extract in its place. I would also recommend adjusting the sugar a tad to give you a more sweet finish. All of this information will be located in the recipe card below.

How to make frozen fudge bars:

1. Melt the chocolate chips in a saucepan over low heat. Stir in the sugar, cornstarch, and milk. Heat until the mixture slightly thickens, making sure to stir consistently.

2. Remove from the heat and cool slightly.

3. Pour into Popsicle molds. Freeze 30 minutes. Add popsicle sticks. Continue to freeze until solid.

How to make homemade Popsicles without a Popsicle mold:

I have a 3 popsicle molds (affiliate link to my fave product) floating around my home. The thing is, I can almost never find them when I need them.

We are big fans of the Dixie cup method when I cannot find my favorite mold.

  1. Pour your pops straight into a Dixie cup.
  2. Freeze 20 minutes.
  3. Add a Popsicle stick and freeze solid.

*Note: Use a baking tray or large plate to keep all of your cups from falling in the freezer.

One tip, try mixing things up and using half of the brown sugar or a dark cocoa powder These easy substitutions can create a brand new flavor that will tickle your taste buds!

My seven  year old has declared these to be one of our must-have treats in the freezer. They are so easy that there is really no reason I would not have them on hand! Next time I make them I am thinking it might be fun to add a little peanut butter for a Reese’s flavor!

Other options to help you make Popsicle without a mold:

  • Muffin Tins
  • Ice cube trays
  • Clean Yogurt Containers
  • Dixie cups

How to get Popsicle’s out of the mold easily:

  1. Fill a container with hot water. You want at least enough to cover to the top of your mold without leaking over onto your pop.
  2. Dip your mold into the hot water for 20 seconds.
  3. Slide out your homemade Popsicle and enjoy!
