Read our disclosure policy. These fig fudge popsicles are a sweet way to enjoy the remaining days of summer! It’s been so hot these days. I’ve been staying cool indoors with the air condition blasting, the ceiling fan on, and a popsicle on each hand. Summer means frozen treats! It’s the perfect time to stock the freezer with delicious no-bake sweet treats. Fudge Popsicles with Fresh Figs 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. Recommended popsicle molds I use these Norpro Frozen Ice Pop molds from Amazon. The mold creates 10 ice pops, just the right amount for the recipe listed here. I also recommend these flexible silicone molds. They are a bit more expensive, but can be used for baking as well as freezing.
