Homemade Fudgsicles with 3 Ingredients
These homemade fudgsicles are made from scratch with just 3 ingredients. No funky or hard to acquire ingredients either, just fast, easy and straightforward. Just like my 3 ingredient Korean melon bars. This is another recipe that will yield a creamy and fudge-y popsicle but this one has a rich chocolatey flavor that’s sure to satisfy your sweet tooth and the nostalgic pull of the ice cream truck that would draw you to trail after it during those sweltering summer months when you were a kid. Those were the days, huh? It was summer vacation and you didn’t have too much more on your agenda than playing with the neighborhood kids which was further highlighted by the presence of the ice cream truck where cold, fun treats gave way to instant, cooling satisfaction and a sugar rush that could fuel you for several more hours of play time. No bills, no meetings, no commitments. Just endless days of play time which were regularly broken up by meals that magically appeared and and yummy treats like fudgsicles that would be just part of your summer routine. That’s pretty much what these fudgsicles symbolize for me. Childhood on a stick.
Besides the fact that you can make these at home with just 3 ingredients, all of which you can pronounce by the way, it’s a cool creamy treat that will help you beat the heat. They’re also fun to experiment with. This past weekend, I layered salted nuts pressed into my 3 minute homemade caramel sauce then filled the rest of the way with my fudgsicle mixture making for a sweet and salty combination and the possibilities are endless from spicy chocolate to a swirled peanut butter and banana fudgsicle. Let me know if you try any fun variations, I’d love to know and until then, enjoy my recipe for super simple 3 ingredient fudgsicles!
