FUDGESICLES INGREDIENTS

You will need:

  • 5.9-ounce package of chocolate instant pudding mix
  • 3 cups of cold milk
  • 10 Popsicle sticks
  • Popsicle molds for 10 popsicles

Pro Tip: You can get a variety of different shapes and sizes of popsicle molds. Plastic or silicone molds are a good choice for this easy recipe. 

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

Pudding Mix: Choose whichever brand of chocolate pudding you prefer. While the recipe calls for chocolate, if you want a different homemade popsicle flavor, you could replace the chocolate pudding with any other flavor you can find in the store. Try vanilla, pistachio, or lemon pudding for a different spin on this sweet treat.

Milk: Any kind of milk can be used for these chocolate popsicles. Whole milk will make nice rich fudgesicles, while nonfat milk will make an icier fudgesicle. If you wanted to make dairy-free fudgesicles, you could even use almond milk, soy milk, oat milk, cashew milk or unsweetened coconut milk. 

Mix-Ins: Add fresh fruit cut in bite-size pieces if you’d like, especially strawberries, bananas, or raspberries, as they go nicely with the chocolate. For a chocolate surprise inside, what about adding white chocolate chips or small pieces of chopped chocolate.

HOW TO MAKE THIS FUDGESICLE RECIPE

STEP ONE: Prepare the pudding according to the package instructions: whisk together the pudding mix and cold milk for about 5 minutes or until thickened.

STEP TWO: Transfer the pudding mix into the popsicle molds. 

PRO TIP: Use a piping bag to pipe the pudding into the molds for easy and cleaner transfer. Tap the molds on the counter to help the pudding pack down into the mold and remove most of the air bubbles.

STEP THREE: Be sure to insert each popsicle stick into the filled molds before freezing.

PRO TIP: If you can’t get your popsicle sticks to stand up right away, wait and pop them in once the fudgesicles have been in the freezer for 1 to 2 hours.

STEP FOUR: Freeze the fudgesicles for about 8 hours until very firm.

STEP FIVE: Dip the molds into warm water for about 30 seconds to help loosen the fudgesicles from the molds.

STEP SIX: Remove the fudgesicles from the molds and place them on a sheet pan lined with wax paper or parchment paper to store in the freezer.

PRO TIP: You can leave fudgesicles in their mold for up to a week, but it is best to remove them within a day, so they don’t lose their texture and color. 

HOW TO SERVE

Serve these easy homemade fudgesicles on a hot day. Or you can serve them year-round if you enjoy frozen treats at different times of the year.

If you need a cold drink to wash them down, a glass of our iced tea, raspberry iced tea, sweet peach iced tea, or our southern strawberry sweet tea on the side would be a great idea.

STORAGE

IN THE FREEZER: Keep the fudge pops frozen until serving. They can be stored in a Ziploc plastic bag with sheets of parchment paper between them to keep them from sticking to one another.

These are an incredibly easy treat and they will become your new favorite recipe. Skip the ice cream truck or corner store and make your own fudgesicles at home. Cold, creamy and decadent, they won’t last long. The best thing is that they are so simple to make with just two basic ingredients, you can make more in a snap.

FAQ

How long does it take to freeze homemade fudgesicles?

How long it will take for your fudgesicles recipe to freeze depends on the mold you are using. Most conventional molds with built-in sticks should take about 5 hours to freeze. We recommend leaving them an extra few hours beyond that to make sure they are nice and solid.

How long are homemade fudgesicles good in the freezer for?

We would recommend using up your fudgesicles within a couple weeks of freezing.

I don’t have my own popsicle mold, what can I use instead?

If you prefer not to purchase a popsicle mold but still want to make these yummy treats, you could use small paper or plastic cups, ice cube trays or a silicone muffin pan.
