Homemade Fudgsicles | Make your own fudgsicles with these simple and tasty ingredients.

This summer I’ve been enjoying making some of my own frozen treats, especially my homemade milk and honey berry popsicles, an easy mixture I can make with ingredients I usually have around the house.  I love the refreshing taste of the frozen berries, but every now and then . . .

. . . well every now and then a girl wants some chocolate.

And when those chocolate cravings hit, I whip up a batch of my homemade fudgsicles.

I’ve found that when I want to make my own fudgsicles, a good way for me to do it is to start with a small 6 oz container of yogurt.  I always use the vanilla yogurt flavor, but you could probably use plain yogurt or greek yogurt as well.  The 6 oz containers are equal to about a 1/2 cup so if I have a larger container of yogurt around the house, I can just measure it out that way too.

To the yogurt, I add some cocoa powder for the chocolate flavor, and some honey and vanilla for some sweetening.  I then thin down the mixture with some milk and it’s ready to pour it into my molds and freeze.

These homemade fudge pops are a nice way for me to get a little bit of frozen chocolately goodness on a hot summer day.  And being at the empty nest stage of life, this gives me a way to make a few frozen treats to satisfy my sweet tooth without having to buy a larger 12 count box from the store.  This recipe fills my 4 count popsicle mold with just a little left over.  If you want a larger batch, this recipe can be easily doubled.

Enjoy homemade fudgsicles on a hot summer day with this easy-to-do recipe.

Here’s how to do it:

Homemade Fudgsicles

Ingredients:

  • 6 oz container Vanilla Yogurt (equal to 1/2 cup)
  • 3 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 3/4 cup Milk

Begin by placing the yogurt in a medium sized mixing bowl.  Add the cocoa powder and stir it into the yogurt until it’s well mixed together.   This is the best way to get the cocoa powder mixed in well without it flying around everywhere or floating to the top of the mixture. { I learned this the hard way when I was lazy and tried just dumping everything in together.  *didn’t work* }

Now, if you own and used a mixing bowl with a pouring spout on it, you are in luck!  But if you’re like me and just have regular mixing bowls, you will probably want to transfer your mixture to a large measuring cup so you don’t make a giant mess trying to pour the mixture into your molds.  Once you have your molds filled, you can pop them in the freezer.

    1. I have not yet tried this with almond milk but I think it would work. It might be helpful to increase the vanilla a little bit if making this substitution.

  1. This is my go to recipe for fudgesicles. I normally bought the organic fudge bars from Costco but since that isn’t something we can do right now I made these! I used fat free vanilla Greek yogurt and oat milk with the Hersheys extra dark cocoa powder and 2 tbl agave and good vanilla extract they are every bit as good as store bought and I can whip them up in 15 minutes or less, thank you we are happy campers🤗

    1. I’m so glad this was a good homemade solution for you Beth! I find that this recipe is just as good as any store bought fudgsicle too. 🙂
