Homemade Fudgesicles

I remember my mom buying a huge box of healthy choice fudge bars from Costco. They were really good, but after eating a lot of the bars my brother and I both got sick of those popsicles.

Well I totally forgot about eating those from a long time ago until I saw Nicole from Baking Bite's recipe for homemade fudgesicles.

The finished product was addicting. And I, the person who is trying to eat healthier, couldn't resist eating a whole popsicle. True, these aren't that big, but they have a really high sugar content. That is a bit scary, but they were worth it! The fudgesicles were really easy to make and they were so good that my parents were fighting over the last few bites. It was a pretty funny sight. I smile just thinking about it.

The following recipe is from Baking Bites and I found that it was ok to paste the recipe on my blog, so here it is. Thanks Nicole.

Homemade Fudgsicles
Recipe from Baking Bites
Aren't the molds so cute? I halved the recipe and made 4 because I wasn't sure how it would turn out.

2 cups low fat or skim milk (I used whole milk)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2/3 cup sugar (I think I reduced the sugar a bit, I forgot)
2 tbsp corn syrup or agave syrup (I used corn syrup)
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a medium saucepan, combine milk, cocoa powder, sugar, corn syrup (or agave syrup) and vanilla extract. Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently, and cook just until all of the sugar and cocoa powder is dissolved. Pour hot mixture into popsicle molds and freeze overnight, or until solid.

Makes 6-8 large popsicles (depends on the size of your molds)

Dry ingredients.

Stir, stir and stir.

It was done. :)

Pour in molds.

They look hard, but in reality, they were nice and "soft".
There was a bite, but it wasn't too hard or too soft, just right. Not like an ice cube at all.


  1. i actually thought you added in those fudge bars into the popsicles XD haha they look good though. i usually do this with leftover hong dou shui :)

  2. I wonder if I can omit the corn syrup.
    I don't want to buy a bottle only for this.

  3. Ooh...I haven't made popsicles for ages.....
    I remember when I was younger, I loved to mix different things and froze them to see how they tasted =D I don't even know where my moulds are anymore!! haha....
    This looks really good though! I might have to rumage through my pantry to find my moulds again- for this!

  4. Grub, Lol. I don't know how to make fudge/I don't have any, but that sounds like a good idea. :) something new to try. Oh cool, I wanted to adapt this recipe and make those red bean popsicles that are sold in Chinese supermarkets, but I haven't had the time or ingredients.

    Wendy, Yea, I'm pretty sure you can. =D Maybe you can add honey instead? I don't think there would be too big an impact. Also, I think the corn syrup is only to make sure the popsicles are softer and not ice cube hard.

    Von, I remember trying to make them too with like apple juice or something....but it didn't taste that good. You can always use regular cups and stick a popsicle stick inside instead. :) Cover the cup with saran wrap and stick the popsicle stick inside so that way the stick won't move around.

  5. The moulds are cute, but I like the fudgesicles more.

  6. I want! Have to dig out those Popsicle mould in the storage. A super desert to serve to the kids rather the those store bought ones. Thanks!

  7. do you have a mold for 5... 1 go for me :D Your fudgesicles look better than store-bought, and even healthier!

  8. Hey your popsicle looks good and chocolatety enough! My mum used to make it whenever we have leftover red bean soup. Serves as cool refreshing red bean popsicle!

  9. Angie, I love those molds. :) They were from a long time ago though, so I don't know where they are from. Thanks.

    Honey Bee Sweets, You're welcome. They are super easy to make, but you wouldn't want the kids to eat too many because there is a high sugar content. Haha, after several of these they might bounce off walls.

    Gattina, Aww thank you. Credit to baking bites.

    Aimei, I want to have some red bean soup, but my mom never makes it anymore. :( Sounds like a great idea.


Thanks for reading my blog. I love hearing about your thoughts and/or your advice. :)
