Fig Fudge Popsicles with White Chocolate Drizzle and Pistachios

These fig fudge popsicles are a sweet way to enjoy the remaining days of summer! 

Fig Fudge Popsicles with White Chocolate Drizzle and Crushed Pistachios

Over the weekend I started and completed the first season of Stranger Things. I AM OBSESSED. I need to know more about the Upside Down.

I can’t stop thinking about Eleven. Is Will okay? Is there going to be a second season? These are important questions I need answers to. (I also can’t stop laughing at the Steve/Jean-Ralphio theories.)

Fig Fudge Popsicles

Another thing on my radar: FIGS! Fig season is upon us and figs are everywhere! Last year I made these whiskey yogurt fig popsicles. They were tasty and dreamy.

Today, I’m sharing an even BETTER popsicle recipe. Fig fudge popsicles with white chocolate drizzle and chopped pistachios.

As a kid I didn’t really like fresh figs. I mainly consumed figs via Fig Newtons and dried figs. These days, I can’t get enough of the fruit.

I’m sharing numerous fig recipes: fig pistachio bostock, fig prosciutto pizza, caramelized fig ice cream.

This fig fudge popsicle is an adaptation of the frozen fudge bars I made a couple years ago. They’re jam packed with chocolate flavor.

Why is there cornstarch in a fudge popsicle recipe?

Don’t be alarmed by the addition of cornstarch in the recipe. It’s mainly to thicken the popsicles. Just be sure to let the milk mixture come to boil to cook out any unwanted cornstarch taste.

Figs and chocolate make an excellent combination. Then again, chocolate works well with pretty much any fruit (strawberry, orange, banana, kiwi, etc).

Best of all, I don’t feel so bad eating these fig fudge popsicles for breakfast because of the fruit. These also make for great snacks while Netflix binge watching.

  2. Place chopped chocolate in a large bowl. Pour hot liquid mixture over chocolate. Let sit for a few minutes to allow chocolate to melt. Mix until chocolate has melted. Let mixture sit for 5 minutes to cool.

Amanda @ Cookie Named Desire

I haven’t started Stranger Things yet. I am trying to finish the last season of Arrow, and I plan on starting it before I catch up on Once Upon A Time. Everyone seems to love it so I can’t wait to see it! As a kid I loved fig newtons. That was where my fig knowledge began and ended for year until maybe sometime in college. I hadn’t even seen what an actual fig looked like! Like you, I am not obsessed and I can’t wait to see more recipes. I am in love with how these popsicles look!
