I think it’s safe to say that hot chocolate season is no longer upon us. It has been as hot as 95 degrees here this week! So instead of letting that hot chocolate mix sit in your pantry until next year then finding it has expired and having to throw it away, let’s turn it into a yummy summer treat, shall we?
These popsicles are SO easy.
They aren’t particularly healthy, but they are a fun teat and they only have 3 ingredients.
The recipe for the mix is modified from my homemade pudding:
For easy home made fudge pops:
1/2 a cup of hot chocolate mix/powder. (I used Nesquick)
2 tablespoons of corn starch
2 cups of milk
Whisk chocolate and cornstarch together to blend, then whisk in milk.
Microwave for 3 minutes, then stir.
Microwave for 1 more minute, stir
Microwave for 1 last minute, stir.
It will thicken a bit, but not to a pudding consistency. (We need it to be pourable.)
Let the mix cool for a few minutes, then pour into popsicle molds and freeze overnight.
Any excess chocolate mix can be folded into Cool Whip for an easy chocolate mouse.
The customers were happy with the results:
