Growing up we spent a lot of time at my grandparents’ house and I remember my grandma always having chocolate fudgesicles in her outdoor freezer. The fudge pops were so good and satisfying, I would go back for a 2nd and, oddly enough, no one stopped me! That might be why I have such a sweet-tooth now… I finally perfected a recipe that is quickly becoming my son Romeo’s favorite. I’ve now made these Chocolate Fudge S’Mores Popsicles several times and they turn out so creamy and delicious, they’re almost foolproof! There is one secret ingredient I use to keep them creamy…
Cornstarch! It’s the secret ingredient to keeping the popsicles creamy and not icy. It’s what gives it that soft, creamy texture when you bite into it. You would think since it has heavy cream and whole milk that would be good enough, but those can tend to freeze over icy. So the cornstarch helps keep them creamy! I use it in my ice cream recipes too, like this raspberry cheesecake swirl.
You can turn them into S’mores, which might be the best dessert on the planet! I topped them with marshmallow fluff and then torched it and added graham crackers. I can’t even tell you how good it is! The fluff doesn’t stay on well, so this is something you do and eat right away.
You can also dip the pops in melted white chocolate, that has been cooled a little, and then add mini-marshmallows and graham crackers to them as well. I demonstrated this on Home & Family TV!
