Chocolate Covered Strawberry Fudgesicles

 
It’s officially the last day of #icecreamweek, and I can’t tell you how sad I am that it’s over. Okay, I’ll try. I’m REAL sad. Extremely sad. Heartbroken. I’m going to miss all of the frozen treats and the bright smiles on the faces of my friends when they’re testing my ice cream.

To celebrate the last day of #icecreamweek, I made y’all creamy, fudgy, strawberry-filled, chocolate chip studded fudgesicles. They. Are. Divine! I may have eaten the leftover chocolate base that didn’t fit in the molds by the spoonfuls. Maybe.

I got these cute little popsicle molds at Ikea for $1.99. They work great, and they’re pink. My fav color.

These popsicles taste like a chocolate covered strawberry. They’re creamy and have a deep cocoa flavor.

I’d like to thank my wonderful #icecreamweek partners in ice cream making crime, Jen from Juanita’s Cocina and Carla from Chocolate Moosey, for making this week very special and very sweet.

Please join us in the celebration of #icecreamweek by linking up one of your own ice cream recipes.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Fudgesicles

1/2 cup sugar
2 tbs. cornstarch
3 tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
2 cups milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tbs. unsalted butter
1 cup strawberries, chopped
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

In a small bowl, whisk together sugar, cornstarch, cocoa, and salt.

In a medium-sized saucepan over medium low heat, heat milk over medium heat. Whisk in the sugar mixture as the milk heats. Cook until the mixture thickens into a loose pudding. Once it boils, it’s finished. Remove from heat and add cream, vanilla extract, and butter. Stir until melted and smooth.

Place plastic wrap directly over the custard and store in the refrigerator until completely cooled. If you’re impatient like me, place the bowl in an ice bath and whisk until room temperature. Once cooled, stir in strawberries and mini chocolate chips. Divide the mixture between the molds and freeze until solid.

To remove the pops from the molds, run the molds under warm water and pull gently on the sticks until they come loose.

    Hi Jennie,
    Thanks for a week’s worth of great ice cream treats to try from you, Carla and Jen! I linked my Cantaloupe Ice Cream and can’t wait to see more ideas! You three inspired me to do a post on old fashioned ice cream sodas!

    Fudgesicles were my favorite frozen treat when I was a kid. Nice to have a recipe so I can make them. Now I just need the molds.
    PS. I have really enjoyed ice cream week.

    Along the coast we are hovering under a cool blanket of summer fog. But that has not stopped me from dreaming of ice cream and Popsicles. The IKEA molds are just adorable, vibrant summer colors and at a price that we all can afford. Just wish the closest IKEA wasn’t an hour & a half away!
