***********************************************************

I am so excited for #IceCreamWeek! If you are an ice cream lover like I am, then I suggest sticking around all week long – we have some amazing recipes coming your way!  I thought I’d start you off with the easiest of my three recipes – a little childhood throwback if you will.

Dark Chocolate Fudge Pops #icecreamweek Do you remember the Jell-O Pudding Pops commercials with Bill Cosby? It’s the first thing I associate when I think of fudge pops and the second is when we used to get fudge pops for our end of day ice cream snack at camp.   I remember liking fudge pops – but let’s be honest they weren’t very chocolatey.   These dark chocolate fudge pops are basically hot chocolate on a stick.  It’s the perfect balance of chocolate flavor with creamy ice cream goodness.  Oh and it takes no time to make, after trying these you’ll ever wonder why you bought fudge pops before!
