Home-made Fudgesicles

As a kid, nothing was quite so good on a hot summer day as an icy-cold Fudgesicle.  Well, maybe one of Ralph's lemon ices, but next to that, the Fudgesicle was about the best treat.  My daughter Katie makes her own version of Popsicles for Henry.  She uses real fruit juice straight up, nothing added.  I was thinking it'd be nice to have a home-made Fudgesicle without the additives.  This recipe, from,  is by no means health food, but it is free of chemicals and other mysterious ingredients, and it would make a great treat once in a while.  If you have molds for Popsicles, give this a try.



2 cups milk
1/2 cup heavy cream or half-and-half
1/2 cup sugar
6 tablespoons cocoa
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla


In a sauce pan combine, cocoa, cornstarch, sugar. Blend well. Now add milk, cream . Cook over medium heat till thick. Remove from heat, add the chocolate chips butter and vanilla. Mix till all chocolate chips are melted and blended well. 

Pour into molds and freeze.
