Introduction: Fudgesicles

Picture of Fudgesicles

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:

Picture of Ingredients:
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • pinch of salt

Very simple, so that means the higher quality of cocoa powder you use, the better they'll be. :D

Also, since I've got a few questions about them, here are the molds I'm using:
Zoku Mini Pops
Zoku Round Pops

Step 2: Cooking

Picture of 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!

Where do you get the popsicle trays and the ice trays?

mirileh (author)Rimwulf2013-08-02

would also love to hear where the molds are from. Are they silicone?

It doesn't have to go into the freezer hot does it? I'd rather not pour a hot mixture into plastic cups. I was thinking of letting it cool at least to room temp first.

You can definitely do that, but it will thicken quite a bit when it cools, so you might need to whisk the hell out of it. :D
