Your frozen treat stash just got an upgrade. This decadent homemade fudgesicles recipe is so amazing! You’ve got to try it ASAP. The best thing about these no sugar added fudgesicles though? Is the cookie dough!!! Cookie dough = total happiness. I simply used my recipe for paleo edible chocolate chip cookie dough and incorporate it into the fudgesicle. Once you learn how to make fudgesicles, you’ll never want your freezer to be without them!
These chocolate popsicles are sweetened with dates, which is not only an incredibly tasty (and paleo!) sweetener, but it also helps give the fudgesicle a classic creamy texture. A scoop of collagen helps with this too, plus you get a little protein boost.
To get the layers, you’ll need to freeze in batches. One suggestion, make the cookie dough AFTER you freeze the first layer of fudge pops or you might end up eating all of the cookie dough by the spoonful and have to make another batch. Not that I would know from experience or anything… 😉
How To Make Fudgesicles
These sugar-free fudgesicles are so EASY to make. Seriously, the hardest part is waiting for them to freeze so you can devour them.
Okay, I can’t keep you waiting any longer, here is all you need to know about how to make fudgesicles:
- Blend fudgesicle ingredients until smooth. Mix coconut milk, dates, cacao powder, unflavored gelatin, vanilla, and salt together until creamy.
- Pour the first layer into the popsicle mold. Let this section freeze until solid.
- Make the edible chocolate chip cookie dough while the popsicles are freezing. Then you can add the cookie dough as the next layer.
- Add the last chocolate layer. Finish filling with chocolate and freeze.
Homemade Fudgesicles Variations
Feel free to make this chocolate popsicle recipe the way it’s written, but don’t be afraid to try out a few other options as well. Here are some ideas that I think you will enjoy.
- Chocolate Chips – You can mix in a few chocolate chips to the coconut milk mixture to have an even more intense chocolate flavor. Double chocolate is always a good idea!
- Nuts – Crush some of your favorite almonds relatively fine and add them to the mix too. So good!
- Mint – If you love chocolate and mint together, why not add a little bit to the mix. Just put a drop or two of peppermint extract in the coconut milk.
Are Fudgesicles Dairy-Free?
Yes, these are dairy-free fudgesicles. (If it’s paleo, it’s dairy-free.) My recipe calls for coconut milk instead of regular milk, so it stays dairy-free.
If you go to an ice cream shop or pick up some fudgesicles at the store, then it will most likely have dairy in it. So, if you are 100% dairy-free or eating a paleo diet, I recommend making this fudge pop recipe instead of buying them pre-made.
Do I Have To Add Cookie Dough To These Homemade Fudge Bars?
No, you can skip the cookie dough if you want to. You can adjust this homemade fudge pops recipe to fit what you like, so if leaving out the cookie dough is a preference then go for it.
(Or if you accidentally ate it all before you put it in the fudge pops… oops!)
What Can I Substitute For Coconut Milk?
If you have an aversion or allergy to coconut milk, you can easily replace it with almond milk or cashew milk.
The only caution is that the coconut milk is what makes this fudge pop recipe so rich and creamy, so if you use a different kind of milk, it won’t be exactly the same. Heavy cream also works for a super creamy option, but would not be paleo or dairy-free.
How Do You Store Homemade Fudgesicles?
Store these no sugar added fudgesicles in the freezer – obviously!
If the molds you are using are airtight, you can leave them in it. Otherwise, you can remove the creamy popsicles and place them in a plastic bag or storage container until you are ready to eat them.
