Recipe: Homemade Fudge Pops!

Pin It

Who doesn’t love a frozen fudge pop? I was a BIG fan of them when I was younger so I worried that a knock-off “real food” version wouldn’t taste as good as what I remembered…but, oh was I wrong! And in case we need any proof my 8-year-old actually told me I was “acting like a kid” while we were eating them together for the first time. Oops – I must have gotten a little messy and proclaimed how good it was one too many times. :)

Real Food Fudge Pops

Sponsor Shoutout: Molly’s Suds

If you are looking to “clean up” other areas of your home the laundry room is a great place to start. Just last year our family started working on that switch and went from conventional laundry detergent to what we thought was “clean” laundry detergent to what (we now know) is really “clean” laundry powder. And yes, they are a sponsor, but I’ve tried quite a few different detergents and Molly’s Suds is honestly my favorite. The reason they won me over is because the safety of the product is unquestionable, the natural smell (peppermint) is divine, and the cleanliness is spot on! I definitely recommend trying them out at least once so you can see for yourself.

Homemade Fudge Pops
Serves: 10 – 2 oz. popsicles
  • ⅔ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa (I prefer the “special dark” variety)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup + 1 tablespoon plain yogurt
  • 1¼ cups milk
  • Special Tools: Popsicle mold and popsicle sticks
  1. In a medium sized bowl whisk together the syrup, cocoa powder, and vanilla until thoroughly combined and there are almost no clumps left. Slowly whisk in both the yogurt and milk.
  2. Pour into the popsicle molds, add a popsicle stick, and freeze. When you are ready to dig in, run a little bit of warm water on the outside of the molds to loosen them up so the popsicles come out easily. Enjoy!

    I wanted to tell you, first, how much I love these fudge pops. Second, that I just discovered that the cocoa and syrup mixture is perfect for chocolate milk!! We are big chocolate milk fans and I always thought there was something “off” about Hershey’s syrup flavor. I’ve told my husband to enjoy his last bottle of it, as I will be making and bottling my own from now on. It actually taste like cocoa (go figure)!

    We make these often. My kids just enjoyed them for a little treat. I made them with almond milk and soy yogurt. I also added all the ingredients to my vitamix and added some chia seeds, flax seeds and some spinach…whirled it up and they never know! Thanks for a great recipe!

    We made these for the first time and we loved them! I didn’t have the Popsicle molds so I put them in a muffin tin with liners. It filled up the entire 12 tins. I am happy to have a couple in the freezer for when the ice cream truck drives by on Saturdays. And one other plus was that I already had all of the ingredients on hand!
