I am one of those parents who believe Summer is never quite long enough. We enjoy sleeping in, going to the beach, exploring outside, and just the general fun & laziness that comes with the long hot days. Today we celebrated Summer with these Homemade Peanut Butter Fudgesicles.

Call me crazy but I have always believed those store-bought fudgesicles were as good as it gets. Y’all, if you have never made your own you are missing out on more happiness than should be allowed. These are rich, creamy, and 1 million times better than any store-bought fudgesicle I have ever eaten.

I started out with simple ingredients. I actually made this dairy-free with coconut milk. In case you were wondering you could not tell that I used coconut in these at all when you tasted the finished popsicle.  Oh, and before I forget….if you don’t have a popsicle mold like this, you need to get one now. This thing is worth its weight in gold. I love it.

In a saucepan, you are going to heat the milk, peanut butter, sugar, and cornstarch. It’s going to be lumpy at first, but just keep stirring and it will look like this.

Once it is heated through and mixed well pour 1/3 of the mix into a heatproof bowl. You are going to add the chopped chocolate and cocoa powder to the rest in the saucepan and stir it in until melted.

Now you are going to fill your popsicle mold. This recipe will only make 5 pops. So double it if you want more. 😉 I am doubling it next time. Fill your molds 1/3 of the way with the chocolate mix and pop in the freezer for a couple of minutes.  Remove from freezer and fill another 1/3 with the PB mix that we reserved earlier. Pop back in the freezer for a couple of minutes. Last time you are going to top it off with the remaining chocolate mixture. Place the lids & sticks and freeze.

A couple of notes…this stuff is thick. Um, it’s fudge 🙂 Don’t worry if it is thicker than you thought it would be.

 These will look frozen after a couple of hours. They will trick you. You will try to remove them and the sticks will fall right out. You will be stuck re-freezing them. Not that I would know that 😉 Trust me, freeze them overnight.

    These were very tasty! I made a batch with peanut butter and a batch with almond butter. I did substitute arrowroot for the cornstarch.
    I did have a hard time removing them from the molds. I ran the mold under warm water and eventually them came out, but we’re a little melty. Any suggestions? Thanks ?
