As soon as I saw this pin on pinterest, I knew that I had to make these fudge popsicles. Smitten Kitchen adapted these from a recipe that she found in Matt Armendairz's cookbook, On A Stick.
These were so delicious. I loved them. Claire loved them. They make a wonderful summer treat.
Adapted, just a bit, from On A Stick!
Makes 4 standard-sized popsicles
2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups whole milk
Pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
Over low heat, melt the chocolate chips in a saucepan, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder, milk and salt. Raise heat to medium. I used a whisk to mix all of this deliciousness together.Whisking frequently, cook until the mixture begins to thicken (you'll know when it happens!) It took 5 minutes for me, but the recipe in the book says that it could take up to 10 minutes. Once it has thickened, remove from the heat and stir in vanilla and butter. Let mixture cool for a bit before pouring into your molds. An hour or so after putting the molds in the freezer add in the popsicle sticks.
I used dark chocolate chips, and also a dark cocoa powder because that's what I had on had. I think that this made them extra delicious. Also, I used salted butter, because that's what we had.
Let me know if you try these out this summer. And if you have any other popsicle recipes leave me a note in the comments- we'd love to try to make some more new ones.
