Dark Chocolate Chunk Raspberry Fudgesicles ~Sundays With Joy~

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.

  1. I'm so excited...I just ordered my copy. Can I still join your Sundays with Joy?????

    LOVE these. I cannot wait to get my hands on her book!

  2. I really need a popsicle mold! The raspberries look great in these fudgesicles, and the more frozen treats for summer the better.

    1. Just use a paper cup as a mold! Can't go wrong with raspberries and chocolate!

  3. Those look so delicious and perfect for here in TX. My brothers were sooooo picky when they were little and I would eat mother used to be so afraid I would be fat. I remember my father putting sardines on crackers and handing them to me. I loved mother would just roll her eyes!

    1. Haha that's awesome. I wouldn't eat sardines now as an adult if you paid me!

  4. Oh yum - LOVE fudgesicles and they do really transport me back in time. Loving the addition of raspberries. Great combo!

  5. I love that yours turned out so full of raspberries, Carrie! Mine sank to one end... not such a bad thing when you're looking for a final treat in your pop, though! :)

  6. Cool picture! It looks delicious.

  7. Hi Carrie,
    I tried this yesterday ! It works!
    My kids like the Dark Chocolate Chunk Raspberry Fudgesicles so much! Thank you for making me look like a professional cooker. :)
    Hey, do you mind submitting your photos to to make others hungry?
    You know it’s fun to do that. LOL. Hey, probably they would do this recipe too. :)

  8. Chocolate and of my favorite combos! These look amazing!

  9. Do they say this about picky eaters? My daughter is living on bread and fruit alone. However, I am quite sure she would NOT turn her nose up at such an amazing popsicle. I'm in too. Delicious!

  10. Fudgesicles are always the right answer to summer.

  11. Wow! These look so good! The perfect frozen chocolate treat for a summer day!

  12. This is so much fun! Fudgsicles always remind me of my dad. We ALWAYS had them in the house. I think I'll attempt this this summer.

  13. oh my goodness, these look absolutely amazing! i will definitely need to try making these sometime soon - they look sooo good!

  14. These look so good!! I've always loved fudgsicles and the addition of raspberries must be amazing--definitely one of the best combinations out there!
