Fudgsicles + Strawberries. 

strawberry covered chocolate popsicle

Don’t you dare compare these to those watered down popsicles from the grocery store/ ice cream truck/ a cardboard box.

These are full fat decadence at its finest.

I made a condensed coconut milk fudge a while back and thought – whoa – these would be dynamite on a stick. Shockingly (lol) my popsicle mold is always occupied, but I finally finished those strawberry green tea popsicles and decided to try this out.

I didn’t think it was necessary to condense the coconut milk, and I’m glad I didn’t waste my time because they taste perfectly creamy just like this

Only 3 ingredients + strawberries if you want them.

Of course being berry season in New England you have to sneak them in every where you can.

Makes 7-8 popsicles. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 can full fat coconut milk at room temperature
  • Maple syrup or other liquid sweetener
  • 1 c dark chocolate chips
  • a handful of fresh strawberries, or any kind of berries if desired
  • optional for flavoring: cinnamon, cayenne, vanilla, almond extract, nutmeg, peppermint extract, peanut butter, etc…I like these *plain* but thinking about adding a dollop of peanut butter to them kind of has me drooling…

 


 

 

Put your chocolate chips into a small sauce pan (or double boiler if you have).

Over the lowest heat possible, begin to melt the chocolate, stirring constantly to prevent burning.

Once chocolate is about 2/3 melted, remove from the heat and stir until completely melted.

Whisk in 1/2 cup of the coconut milk.

Once smooth, add another 1/2 cup of milk and whisk smooth.

Add the rest of the milk slowly. Adding all the milk at once can make the chocolate seize up and get hard, you don’t want this to happen. If it does, try to gently reheat the pan – lowest heat possible again – and whisk it back to life.

Add 2 tablespoons of maple syrup.

Taste and add more sweetener if needed.

Hull and thinly slice a handful of strawberries.

Put a few strawberry slices into each popsicle mold – enough to fit in 1/3 of the mold without packing them down.

Pour your chocolate mixture into each mold, filling it to the top. The strawberries will float freely in the chocolate.

Don’t forget your popsicle sticks!

Freeze overnight.

 

Enjoy!

 

*yes, there is a slight coconut flavor to these – it will go unnoticed if left unsaid. I enjoy the flavor. If you don’t like coconut milk, try another milk! Note that since coconut milk has such a high fat content, they will not be as creamy with a thinner milk.
