One of my favorite treats are fudgesicles, but I know all the ingredients in commercially available ones aren’t good for me. 

We figured out how to make delicious fudgesicles and they were so good I thought I’d share it with you!

This is just one of all recipes I've shared on this blog of our family tested recipes!

Fudgesicles Popsicle Recipe

we prefer to use whole milk, but any will do

In a medium saucepan pour 3 cups milk (we use organic, non-homogenized, grass fed whole milk)

we sweeten with local honey, but you can use sugar if you prefer

Add 3/4 cup honey (we use raw, local honey), 1 cup sugar, or 1/4 cup pure maple syrup

Add 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  Reduce mixture to 1/2 of it's volume

Warm over low heat until steam is rising off the top. You want it as low as possible, but it needs to steam to reduce the milk.  Steam to 2/3 - 1/2 of it’s original volume (about 15 minutes).

Add 1 teas vanilla extract and allow it to cool slightly. Pour into molds. Freeze for at least 3 hours.

add raspberries at the bottom for chocolate raspberry fudgesicles

Note: You can add some pureed raspberries to the bottom of the molds for a more decadent fudgesicle!
