Paired with that pic, my post title is a bit creepy. Oops.
My brother is picky. My brother loves my fudgesicles. Out of all the things I’ve ever fed him, he says these fudgesicles are the very best thing. Well, until he had my eclairs anyway. LOL!
He has been bugging me to make these this summer, and the only thing stopping me is that my freezer is so full I have no place to put the mold unit. So, teamwork! I’m mixing up a batch today, and my bro (who lives next door) is going to put them in his freezer.
Recipe is easy and perfect. For those of us who are of a “certain age”, these taste like what you remember they should taste like. Only with even better mouthfeel.
Here’s a link to the mold set and sticks I use. I don’t like plastic or silicone. I like stainless steel. This set has been in use in my household since May of 2014, and I love it more every time I use it.
Popsicle Mold Set:
Extra Sticks (VERY nice):
¼ cup semisweet chocolate chips
2/3 cups granulated sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
2½ cups whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Mold set and wooden popsicle sticks
Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave on 50% power in 30-second increments, stirring after each, until melted and smooth.
Combine the melted chocolate, sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder, and milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring frequently, until the mixture thickens, about 10 minutes.
Remove from heat, add the vanilla and butter, and stir until well combined.
Let the mixture cool slightly (it should still be warm but not hot to the touch), and then pour into popsicle molds.
Freeze for 30 minutes, and then insert sticks. Freeze completely before serving.
