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.

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.
