Homemade fudgesicles

These Homemade Fudgesicles are perfectly flavored, super quick to put together, and best of all, it costs less than $2 for a large batch of Homemade Fudgesicles!

I used oneAmazon ice cream in steel form- but if you don't have one or don't want to invest in one, IKEA has very affordable popsicle molds, or you can even use Dixie cups like I did in mine last weekeasy rainbow popsiclesRecipe.

I made these homemade fudgesicles yesterday and we're already halfway through. My 9 year old loves them! She had one at 7 this morning as a pre-breakfast snack while she watched TV. My kids usually drink milk first thing in the morning, and these are made with lots of milk, so I don't feel too bad.

Okay, so maybe I'm feeling a little guilty for feeding my kids popsicles at 7am, but I just didn't feel like getting the milk this morning. These fudgesicles were the next best thing and the kids LOVED them!

I love how perfect these homemade fudgesicles look!? I will share tips on removing the popsicle from the mold in the following tutorial. I know this part can definitely be tricky, but with a few tips it's super easy.

When I was a kid we always had fudgsicles. My mother loved her! And now that we have an awesome popsicle shape, I'm predicting lots of fun popsicles to crop up in our summer this year!!

The full printable recipe is at the bottom of this post, but here's a list of affiliate links to products on Amazon showing what you need:

Any brand of instant chocolate pudding should work, but make sure the box says 4 servings (usually 1/2 cup each).

I also used food grade popsicles. I really don't know if they have to be food safe? Or if something is wrong with normal craft sticks? However, if you can get the food grade, it's probably safer.

Make sure your mold and popsicle sticks are ready before you begin. The pudding will set in minutes, and if you can't pour the pudding, you won't be able to get it into your molds.

Prepare the pudding according to package instructionsexcept add more milk. My pudding box asked for 2 cups of milk, but I added 2-2/3 cups of milk.

Adding extra milk does two things:

  1. This will stretch the pudding further, allowing you to fill a 10-slot popsicle mold. (Each of my popsicle slots holds 3 ounces of liquid)
  2. It gives you extra time to work with the custard so it stays runny enough to pour into the molds.

My batch of pudding fit the molds PERFECTLY. I was able to fill all 10 popsicles until they were about 1/4 inch from the top with no leftovers.

The popsicle mold has a fancy aluminum cover that goes over the ice. At the top are holes for the popsicle sticks. I pressed the popsicle sticks into the mold until they were about 1 inch off the bottom. If you slide them all the way to the bottom of the mold you won't have much popsicles to hold on to at the end. So make sure you don't push them down too far.

Place the mold in the freezer and wait for the chocolatey goodness to set! I think they will freeze in about 4 to 6 hours? But I left mine overnight so I don't know exactly how long it lasts.

How do I remove homemade fudgesicles from the mold?

When you take the popsicle mold out of the freezer, the fudgsicles won't move when you try to pull the sticks. Do not worry! That is normal. They just have to melt very slightly so they can slide out of the mold.

There are 2 ways you can easily do this:

  1. Run the popsicle you're trying to remove under warm water. Then grasp the popsicle firmly with one hand and pull the popsicle with the other hand, gently press with the hand holding the popsicle to pop it out of the mold.
  2. Alternatively, you can fill a tall plastic container with warm water and then dip the mold into the water for about 7 seconds. Then, again, grasp the popsicle firmly with one hand and pull the popsicle with the other hand, gently squeezing the hand holding the popsicle to get it out. Using this method, as long as the sides of your water container are thin enough, you can "dip" two popsicles into the water at once.

The fudge pop is a pretty interesting frozen treat, when you think about it. It's not exactly an ice cream bar, as it's not exactly frozen chocolate ice cream on a stick. It has a gooier, fudgier consistency than chocolate ice cream, and a different flavor altogether.
