:: Homemade Fudgesicles ::
Homemade Fudgesicles are the perfect way to cool down on a hot day. They are a simple and refreshing dessert that can be created with your kids. Ice pops in general, feature a few quality ingredients that allow for a healthier dessert. I don’t know about you, but in our house… dessert is a must! With my sweet tooth, and the kids following not far behind, homemade pops are easy to control the sugary sweetness. Not-to-mention, they only require a few simple tools to create. I like to use Tovolo Pop Molds. This recipe can also be used with Zoku Quick Ice Pop Makers, or even using a small disposable water cup with old-fashioned wooden sticks. My kids enjoyed helping and testing the chocolate mixture, as well as, having a taste or two of the chopped chocolate. Home economics at it’s finest, allows for a teachable yet fun moment with family! This classic recipe makes you remember why you loved getting one of these from the ice cream truck as a kid!
