Homemade Fudgesicles

I am super excited to share this new recipe with you.  I originally found it over at Joy in My Kitchen, a simply wonderful recipe blog!

And you know how it is with recipes like this; you say, "Okay. This looks good, but does it taste like the stuff we get at the store?"  My answer for this one is, "Yes!"

I'm sure someone out there could tell a difference in the taste, but I have to say that I (and even my husband, the fudgesicle fanatic) were amazed at how good these were and how close they were to the fudgsicles we know and love!  So check out the recipe and go make some this week!

Recipe for Homemade Fudgesicles:

3/8 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon flour
1 1/2 tablespoon cocoa
2 cups milk

Directions:  Combine the flour, sugar, and cocoa in a sauce pan, and whisk to combine.  Add milk slowly, and whisk to combine over medium heat.

Heat until mixture thickens, about 2-4 minutes over medium heat, stirring constantly with a spatula. (Note: It never got thick for me, even after 5 minutes or so, so I just removed it, and it still turned out great.)

Pour mixture into a measuring cup, or something with a spout so that it's easy to pour into a popsicle mold.

Pour into molds (We made 7 popsicles).  Freeze overnight, and enjoy!

By the way, the popsicle tray I used for this is a KidCo BabySteps Frozen Treat Tray, which I received through a credit as a preferred blogger at CSNStores.  They worked out very well, and in my opinion it's a perfect size for kids (and adults) of all ages.
