Is there anything better than a fudge pop to bring you back to your childhood?
As a little girl I did not like chocolate. Is that strange or what? Though I loved fudge pops. Nothing fancy just a good ol' Good Humor fudgesicle.
I also liked the Good Humor Chocolate Eclair Pops. Though I ate the outside ( you know the awesome cookie crumble coating) then I left the chocolate center. Which was essentially... a fudge pop?! Why did I leave that behind but then would chow down on a traditional fudgesicle?
Strange girl I was.
I think I might have been one of the pickiest children on earth. Which is funny because now I will pretty much eat anything on earth except most fish.
People always say the pickiest eaters turn into foodies! So maybe there is hope for my little boys?
Compared to allot of kids they are not that picky and I was most definitely a pickier eater as a child then they are!
This week for Sundays With Joy we are bringing back that childhood favorite. Fudgesicles.
With a grownup twist, Joy adds dark chocolate chunks and fresh raspberries. This fudgesicle will be getting praises from grownups and kids alike!
To make the pops you start off with a basic stove top chocolate pudding. It's easy to whip up. Little milk, cream, some cocoa, corn starch. Allow to cool, Fold in some berries and chocolate chunks. Pour into molds and freeze.
The only changes I made to Joy's recipe was... I halved it. It's perfect and needed no changes and totally hit the spot! I did fudge it up a bit (no pun intended)... I had some cornstarch lumps. I confess I totally made these at 3 am the other night when I had insomnia..... I was lazy tired and not paying close attention to my pudding. And frankly at 3 am I don't give a hoot about corn starch lumps!
How easy is that?! These fudge pops put Good Humor to shame!
Now I know you just want this recipe so you can make them yourselves. And you should get the recipe... so buy your own copy of the book! For info on Joy the Baker Cookbook: 100 Simple and Comforting Recipes click HERE.
