This recipe is special to me because it was given to me by my grandma several years ago. My Grandma farmed and so everything she made was made from scratch. She didn't often write down her recipes because she made them up as she went along. A pinch of that here and a little of this there(hmmm....she may have passed that trait down...lol!) She did however write down her recipe for fudgesicles for me. I made them for the first time after I got married, and wow are they amazing! This is one of those recipes that will never be good for you but are one amazing treat to enjoy every so often. I made a batch yesterday with some farm fresh cream and milk...just like Granny probably used to make them. I hope you enjoy this recipe! If you make it let me know what you think!
What you need:
  • 3 c. milk
  • 1 c. cream
  • 1 1/4 c. sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 T. unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 T. corn starch
Sauce pan
Popsicle containers
Mix all ingredients together in the sauce pan, besides the corn starch, and stir constantly over a medium heat until the mixture is warm or just until it starts to bubble. Add in cornstarch and stir until all is dissolved in the mixture. Pour into popsicle containers and freeze. Enjoy on a hot day!
