Growing up my elementary school always had fudgesicles for an after-lunch treat. The rich, creamy, and chocolaty frozen pop has always been a favorite so I set out to try to recreate it for my family.

Ingredients for Homemade Fudgesicle Recipe

You only need two ingredients and you probably have them on hand!

  • Chocolate pudding – Use whatever brand you like whether it’s Jell-O, Godiva, Hershey’s, or another favorite. Using your favorite will be so much more enjoyable. You need the 4-serving 3.9-ounce size.
  • Milk – I used 2% milk but whole milk will make these fudge pops richer. I don’t advise using skim because it’s too watery. 

I have not tried making dairy-free fudgesicles so if you do, please let me know how they turn out.

You’ll also need a frozen pop mold. If you don’t have one or prefer not to purchase one, you can use 3-ounce paper cups as I did in this Chocolate Oreo Fudgesicles recipe.

If you go the paper cup route you’ll get more fudgesicles making them perfect for a party.

How to remove homemade fudgesicles from popsicle molds

Run warm water over the individual molds. If you have a popsicle mold similar to mine, where they are all connected, try to run the water over just what you need. 

Put the unmolded pops back in the freezer.

How do you store homemade fudgesicles?

Store fudgesicles in the freezer for up to 1 week. Any longer and they may get freezer burn. There’s a good chance they won’t last that long. I keep them in the original popsicle mold.
