Fudgesicles. My kids love them. If they could, they would eat them daily. I’m currently on a popsicle making kick (more info on that in the coming weeks)
On Tuesday, while browsing through Pinterest I came across a homemade recipe for Fudgesicles from this blog. I couldn’t resist trying them out so yesterday morning I prepared the molds and mixed the ingredients, froze them and then served from as dessert after dinner. They were a hit!
I tweeked the original recipe since I want to keep my children’s sugar intake low. I used Agave Syrup (available at health food stores) but cornsyrup is a good substiture. I also used skim milk but I’m sure it would work with 2% milk.
2 cups skim milk
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup sugar
2 tbsp agave syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
In a medium saucepan, combine milk, cocoa powder, sugar, 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 your molds and freeze overnight, or until solid.
