These are chocolate-y and very easy to make. The kids enjoy making these as they can read the directions, measure the ingredients, and mix it.
I used 1% milk but according to reviews these can also be made with almond milk. Whole milk would make these extra fudgy and creamy.
I use the Tupperware popsicle molds (here). The recipe makes 8 popsicles so I also make 2 small bowls.
Homemade Fudge Popsicles
Adapted from Brown Eyed Baker
Makes 8 popsicles
¼ c semisweet chocolate chips
2/3 c granulated sugar
2 tbsp cornstarch
3 tbsp natural unsweetened cocoa powder
2½ c milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp unsalted butter
Combine the chocolate chips, sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder, and milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly until the mixture thickens, about 10 minutes. Set a timer for 10 minutes and stir, it really will thicken.
Remove from heat, add the vanilla and butter, and stir until well combined.
Let the mixture cool slightly, and then pour into popsicle molds or small bowls. Freeze completely (overnight) before serving.
To remove popsicle from the mold, run popsicle under warm water for 10 seconds then squeeze gently and pull the popsicle out of the case. If it doesn't, try again.
