Skinny Fudgesicles + Mini-Guide to Creating your own Popsicles
I started making Popsicles with Chocolate Covered Katie’s Starbucks Frappuccino Fudgsicles! and when they turned out soo good (!!!!), I started experimenting to come up with my own Cocoa Fudgsicles with the ingredients I already have at home.

What are Popsicles?
Popsicles are frozen, water-based desserts. They are made by freezing flavored liquid (such as fruit juice or chocolate milk!) around a stick. A classic method involves using ice cube trays and toothpicks, although various ice pop freezer molds are also available. (Adapted from here)
What are Fudgsicles?
This frozen dessert is in a flat shape on a stick, but it is chocolate-flavored with a texture somewhat similar to ice cream.
Guide to making Popsicles:
The Popsicles are easy to bite and not numb on the mouth. Thus they cannot be icy or your tongue may freeze. So, to make them, you need to include 1 or more of the following ingredients to your Popsicles to help achieve the aforementioned texture:
- blended fruit
- concentrated fruit juice
- full cream milk
- cream (heavy/pouring/whipped)
- half-n-half (low fat is okay)
- evaporated milk (low fat is okay)
- condensed milk (low fat is okay)
- cocoa powder (Tried and True!!!)
- agave syrup/maple syrup/ golden syrup/ corn syrup
- sugar (in large amounts)
- nut butters/ coconut butter
- coconut milk/creamer
- xanthan gum/ guar gum
