  • 1 ¾ cup whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 Tablespoon instant espresso powder, optional
  • ½ cup dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup + 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt


  • In a heavy bottomed sauce pot, whisk together milk, cream, and cornstarch. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add cocoa powder and espresso powder. Whisk until cocoa powder has dissolved.
  • Place chopped chocolate in a large bowl. Pour hot liquid mixture over chocolate. Let sit for a couple minutes to allow the chocolate to melt. Stir to combine. Add sugar and salt. Mix until distributed. Let mixture sit for a couple minutes to allow to cool.
  • Transfer to a large pitcher (or large liquid measuring cup) and pour into popsicle molds. Place in freezer for 30 minutes. Insert wooden sticks into molds and return to freezer for another 4 hours until fudge bars are solid.


Equipment Notes:

I use these popsicle molds  from Amazon.


  • Individually wrap frozen pops in plastic wrap and keep in an airtight container in the freezer for up to two weeks.
