What you guys do when you’re cleaning the house?
I listen to Lady Gaga (ow!) and dance around while Elliot raises his eyebrows at me.

What do you guys do when you see a mini popsicle mold in the Target dollar section?
I grab one and look around to see if everyone else is as excited as I am. They aren’t.

What do you do when you have seven awesomely cute mini fudgesicles?
I try to justify them all in one sitting, but don’t because I can’t wear stretchy pants to work for the rest of my life, and I guess I should give Jake one.

P.S. These are basically frozen ganache. Oh my ganache; they’re good.

Fudgesicles {makes 7 minis}
Recipe adapted from Alton Brown via Sweet Tooth


  • 4 oz. chopped semi-sweet chocolate
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used skim.)
  • 1 T unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 t vanilla


  1. Place chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl; set aside.
  2. Combine heavy cream, milk, and cocoa powder in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk until cocoa is dissolved and the mixture comes to a simmer. Remove from heat and pour over chocolate. Let it stand for 2-3 minutes. Whisk until smooth, stirring in vanilla. Pour through a fine-mesh strainer in case the cocoa powder was clumpy.
  3. Divide mixture evenly among the molds and place in the freezer. Freeze for at least 4 hours or until solid.

TIP: Run the molds under warm water to loosen up the popsicles. If you accidentally pull the stick out simply run water over the stick; re-insert and re-freeze!

This fudgesicle wasn’t born this way.

I dance when I do housework too. Dance parties make it more fun. I just got a popsicle mold set. I need to try these out!

Yum, and perfect for hot weather we’ve been having here! I got an el cheapo popsicle maker a while back and loved experimenting with it, too. Now I want a Zoku Quick Pop maker SO bad. We need them, Megan!


Megan (megabite) June 22, 2011 at 4:24 pm

We really do! I want the quickest of pops!

Candice! You totally get me!

Would you believe I was just in Target the other day looking for popsicle molds and couldn’t find any? I didn’t think to look in the dollar section though. I ordered it from amazon. Can’t wait to try this. And of course, the Chocolate Chip cookie dough popsicles. Ah, summer 🙂


Megan July 15, 2012 at 12:45 pm

ooh yeah man! you need some pops in yo life!


Jill July 15, 2012 at 12:21 pm

We’re having a major heat wave in my town so this post is beyond amazing to me. I need to buy pop molds asap. Why don’t I have them already??


Megan July 15, 2012 at 12:46 pm

I know what you mean! It’s too hot to handle here in the mitten too!


Billy July 15, 2012 at 12:34 pm

Basically I wish they wish they made stretchy pants for men that were allowable in public.

Also it’s okay, I got just as excited as you did when I saw popscicle molds in Target’s dollar section.

Also I’m going to pull your coffee smore’s ganache here and infuse them with coffee. watch out.


Megan July 15, 2012 at 12:46 pm

I love everything about this! And hell to the yeah about making these coffee-tastic. I like the way you think!
