Taking a bite of these icy chocolate fudgesicles took me right back through the time machine to Lulu D. Haddon Elementary School cafeteria on ice cream day. The flavor and texture of these are very reminiscent of those ice cream treats but the good thing about this recipe is that they are non-fat. I used skim milk, though you could probably use a higher fat content milk if you so desired. Mix the ingredients together, give them a quick simmer over the stove, pour into popsicle molds and then be patient. It's as easy as that. Enjoy!
2 cups low fat or skim milk
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2/3 cup sugar
2 tbsp corn syrup or agave syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
In a medium saucepan, combine milk, cocoa powder, sugar, corn syrup (or agave syrup) and vanilla extract. Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently, and cook just until all of the sugar and cocoa powder is dissolved. Pour hot mixture into popsicle molds and freeze overnight, or until solid.
Makes 6-8 large popsicles (depending on the size of your molds)
