Homemade Fudgesicle Recipe

Homemade Fudgesicle Recipe

I couldn't remember the last time I had a fudgesicle. Awful, right? So the other day I had to do something about it. I went searching for a good recipe and wasn't really satisfied with anything that I was finding. If I was going to make fudgesicles from scratch I wanted them to be better than the store bought ones. They had to be extremely fudgy and creamy... no watery or icy fudgesicles allowed. I didn't want chocolate flavored ice pops. I wanted chocolate in the form of an ice pop. Am I making any sense?

Maybe not, but I am happy to say that after experimenting and taking random bits from countless other fudgesicle recipes I finally put together one that is exactly what I wanted! These are fudgy, creamy, extremely chocolate-y and best of all...irresistible.

These are by far one of my favorite sweet snacks of the summer and they're so easy to make. Stirring in mini chocolate chips after the mixture has cooled adds an extra surprise to these fudgesicles.


½ cup sugar
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
3 Tablespoons cocoa powder
2 ½ cups whole milk
2/3 cup chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Tablespoon butter
½ cup chocolate cool whip
½ cup mini chocolate chips

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a simmer, sitr until thick, pudding like consistency ( 5-8 minutes). Remove from heat and sitr in the vanilla, butter and cool whip. Tranfer to a heatproof bowl and refrigerate until cool. Stir in mini chocolate chips. Pour in mold and carefully insert popsicle sticks into each fudgesicle. Freeze until frozen (at least 4 hours).
