Fudge Popsicles

These Fudge Popsicles are creamy, super chocolatey, and way better than any store bought variety.  You just can’t beat homemade flavor.  Perfect way to get your chocolate fix and cool off at the same time.


I’ve been wanting to make Fudge Popsicles forever.  As a kid, I wasn’t much of a pure chocolate eater (clearly, that’s changed) but I did love popsicles.  And Fudgesicles were always met with a big smile and a mad dash to finish it off before it could melt.

Fudge Popsicles are something I happily indulged in even as a grown-up, since they’re seriously chocolatey yet less heavy than something like this flourless chocolate cake.

Every cool bite of this fudgy frozen treat satisfies the chocolate lover in us.  It’s a well portioned and contained way of getting just enough of a chocolate fix without guilt.  Perfect for those of us who have eaten too many of these chewy chocolate chip cookies.

Plus, making my own fudge popsicles means I personally know all 7 ingredients that went into them…

Just a handful of simple ingredients, none of which are unpronounceable…gotta feel good about that 🙂

On a sweltering hot day, you’ll have to beat the heat and eat these fudgy popsicles up before they melt. Although a deeply chocolatey, fantastically creamy frozen treat that’s slightly melty can be a pretty awesome thing.

In real life, we eat these little yummies up seconds after they’ve been snatched from the freezer.  Literally seconds.  One-and-two-and-gone.

By the way, my 4th grader is the talented chef who made the fudge popsicles you see here.  My kid who’s uncompromisingly all-boy. That one took it upon himself to measure, melt, scoop, stir, and create these pops.  Hubby lent a hand with the stovetop part, but nothing else.

That’s how easy and fail proof these decadent fudge popsicles are.

The hardest part is waiting for them to get frozen.  Are they frozen yet?

Love frozen desserts in the summer? You’re going to love making these Oreo blizzards at home.
