When I was little, maybe 5 or 6 years old, my parents let me spend a week or so at my aunt and uncles farm in northern Pennsylvania. I loved spending time with the cows and exploring the farm with my cousins. My cousins and I played hide and seek, picked wild flowers, spent time at the county fair, and caught lightning bugs together. If I was really lucky, sometimes one of my cousins would even let me sit on her horse for a few minutes. What could be better?
Those summer days were hot, and we would get sweaty playing and working on the farm. The farmhouse didn’t have any air conditioning, but what it did have was a seemingly never ending supply of popsicles in the freezer. My favorites were the fudge flavored. It’s a good thing my aunt turned a blind eye, because I must have eaten dozens of these chocolatey treats.
Now, as the days get warmer, the heat reminds me of sitting on the chest freezer with my cousins slurping away at a fudge flavored popsicle. With these memories in mind, I worked on this recipe.
These fudge popsicles are a grown-up version of the ones from my aunt’s freezer. They have a rich chocolate flavor and a smooth, velvety texture. They melt into fudge-y goodness in your mouth. Yep, they just make summer a little bit cooler.
To make these popsicles, you will need something to mold them in. There are a variety of ice pop molds sold in grocery stores and kitchen stores. Any of them will work to mold these popsicles. The only issue you may have is that the quantity of popsicle mixture may not fit perfectly, so you may need to adjust the quantity of mixture.
I used this ice pop mold when developing this recipe. I love this ice pop mold because it makes ten 3-ounce popsicles. Some other molds only make four and four popsicles just don’t last very long in our house! I also love that this ice pop mold uses wooden sticks. Wooden stick have an old-fashioned look and feel to them. Best of all, there are no plastic popsicle sticks to lose.
These Easy Low-Carb Fudge Popsicles make a great treat to cool off with in the summer. They are even guilt-free. Enjoy!
