Ingredients

  • Milk – I like to use 2% milk for this recipe, but whole milk will make the popsicles even creamier.
  • Instant chocolate pudding mix – make sure to buy instant pudding mix! It sets up fast without any cooking steps.

Helpful Tools

Can you make fudge pops out of pudding?

Yes, and it’s so easy!

Mix: Whisk the milk and pudding mix until creamy and well combined.

Freeze: Pour the pudding mixture into the popsicle molds and freeze for them overnight or until they are firm.

Enjoy! Once they’re frozen, remove them from the molds following the manufacturer’s instructions. Usually, all it takes is running them under some warm water to release them.

Variations

You can use instant dark chocolate pudding mix or regular chocolate. You can also make other kinds of popsicles using any other pudding mix flavor!

I haven’t tested this recipe with non-dairy milk, but I think almond milk would work well. Just keep in mind that your fudge pops may not be as rich and creamy.

How long do fudgesicles keep?

Store them in the coldest part of your freezer and they will keep for several weeks. I like to remove them from the popsicle mold once they are frozen and store them in a freezer bag. They keep better that way!

Can I Make Fudgsicles without a popsicle mold?

Yes! All you need is some small cups like Dixie cups. Pour the filling into them, then stick a popsicle stick in it. Freeze overnight. Then remove and eat them just like a popsicle.

How do I remove Fudgesicles from popsicle mold?

Sometimes they get a bit stuck in the mold. The easiest way to get them to release from the mold so they come out easily is to run a little hot water over the outside of the mold. This should help them release easily.
