Homemade Fudgesicles from scratch is one easy recipe you need to make this summer.

I don’t think there’s ever been a summer where I didn’t eat a Fudgesicle. Whether it’s from an ice cream truck while spending outside in the hot summer sun or from a box sold at stores to enjoy at home, I never could resist eating one. In fact, I searched a long time for the popsicle mold I have now just so I could have that iconic look for making Homemade Fudgesicles from scratch. Now I’ve made this recipe multiple times since last year but just haven’t shared it yet. With a double dose of chocolate, these ice cream pops will cool you down in no time.

Homemade Fudgesicles

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Fudgesicles, think of chocolate ice cream on a stick. A friend asked if they tasted just like frozen fudge. They do have that rich, decadent fudge taste where you can only eat a small portion at a time but with the texture of ice cream. In other words, only mega chocoholics need to apply.

Homemade Fudgesicles for an easy summer treat to cool down

As you can see in the photos, I was a bit impatient with unmolding then refreezing, so they didn’t take long to melt at all. Ideally you’ll want to unmold then re-freeze until firm again, but if you’re cool with chocolate all over your face, I won’t blame you for being impatient too. And if you don’t have official popsicle molds, you can use those 3 ounce dixie paper cups and just cut away the cup if they don’t unmold easily.

  1. Oooh those look delicious! I’ve never tried making fudgesicles at home but it sounds awesome. :)

  2. These look amazing! Love the chocolate goodness!

  3. Wow! cool! got all the ingredients, so have to try it, thanks!

  4. Homemade fudgsicles are totally rocking my socks right now (oh yeah, I took it back to 7th grade)–these look so creamy and chocolatey and wonderful!

  5. I am not much of a popsicle eater, but I will go out of my way for a fudgesicle. They are a harbinger of summer in my take on the world—a throw back to childhood.

  6. Carla, looking at your gorgeous fudgesicles is really bringing me back to my childhood. They were my absolute favourite frozen treat. A couple years ago, the Husband and I chased down an ice cream truck and bought our childhood favourites (for the Hubs, it was a Rocket. For me, it was a fudgesicle). It just didn’t taste as good as I remember, which made me so sad! Yours will probably kick that manufactured, mediocre fudgesicle’s ass! I can’t wait to try this recipe.

  7. I LOVE fudgesicles, but I always buy them because I didn’t know how to make them..until now! Yay! Pinned :)

  8. Fudgesicles are the best type of popsicle, hands down! It’s a no-brainer, they are chocolate so of course they are the best!

  9. Mmm, I can’t remember the last time I had a Fudgesicle! I totally want one now!

  10. These look phenomenal! Fudgesicles for life.

  11. fudgesicles were my favorite as a kid, I am going to have to make these!

  12. Those look delish! One of my favorite summer treats are fudgesicles, so I am definitely going to try this!

    I couldnt find a mold that looks like that on Amazon. They have lots of molds . Which one did you buy that is actually shaped like a fudgesiccle?

  14. Do you think that this recipe could make vanilla pops??? Like substituting vanilla chips for chocolate and may adding more vanilla extract????

    • I haven’t tried it myself, so I’m not sure. I would not use white chocolate chips and instead use chopped white chocolate. White chocolate chips are much more finicky to melt. I would do 1 teaspoon vanilla and even throw in some vanilla bean seeds if you have a bean.

  15. Fabulous fudgesicles! – made 2 batches of them last night. My mum used to make these for us when we were kids, but weirdly I haven’t even thought about making them until now (40 yrs later…:)) Now they’ll be a summer regular! Thanks for the recipe.
