How to Make Homemade Fudgesicles

We love making homemade popsicles during the warm summer months to cool off. Makeing popsicles from scratch not only limits the processed, artificial ingredients in our food, but can be a fun summer activity for kids too. Because we LOVE chocolate in our house, we decided to try to make homemade fudgesicles. This fudgesicles recipes uses just 5 common ingredients I bet you already have at home. These diy fudgesicles are easy to make, use real ingredients, and taste amazing!

If you are looking for how to make ice cream chances are you are interested in making delicious treats for your family from scratch.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 homemade fudgesicles and these homemade fudge pops were so good I thought I’d share it with you!

we prefer to use whole milk, but any will do

fudgesicle ingredients

All you need to make chocolate popsicles are 5 simple ingredients you probabaly already have on hand:

  • 3 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

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

Fudgesicles recipes

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

Homemade fudge pops

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
