These homemade fudgesicles are so easy to make and they taste even better than the fudgesicles you can get at the store. And, no weird ingredients - plus no dairy! Hooray. :D
You could even add some gelatin or essential oils to get super fancy fudgesicles, but I like this basic recipe so much I decided to keep it simple.
I found this recipe on the Splendid Table website - I swear the ladies that run it are just the gods of food.
Step 1: Ingredients:
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup cocoa
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- pinch of salt
Also, since I've got a few questions about them there are the molds I'm using:
Zoku Mini Pops
Zoku Round Pops
Step 2: Cooking
Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat and cook until the sugar dissolves.
Then add in the cocoa powder, salt and vanilla and whisk like crazy. You'll want to cook this mix for 3-5 minutes or until it thickens slightly.
The first photo is right after the cocoa powder was added, the second is once it's cooked.
Step 3: Filling + Chilling
Pour the mixture from the saucepan into a measuring cup - it will be easier to pour that way.
Put it directly into the molds and pop in the freezer. :D
Because it's so hot when it comes out of the pan, it will take a while to freeze. It can take up to 5-6 hours depending on the size of your molds.
You can also put this into small ramekins for delicious little cups of sorbet-like chocolate!
