We are certainly in the thick of summer now – the days are longer, the sun shining and it is popsicle/fudgesicle season. Why should the kids all have the fun when the adults can enjoy their favorite childhood treat with a tad bit addition of some irish cream. This summer treat tastes like a milkshake in a frozen form.
Taking a bite of these reminds me of being a kid. I loved taking a bite into a fudgesicle since they were so creamy and really satisfied the chocolate craving. Sure popsicles were good too with fruity flavors but there was some special about fudge-pops.
Are ice cream trucks still a thing? They definitely were back in the day when I was growing up (even when our kids were little). We would listen for that music, run and ask for some money from our parents, and run out to get in line for our special treat – that is of course if we ate all our dinner 🙂
When we moved to the mid-west when the kids were 4 and 6 and alas, we no longer heard that music or saw any kind of ice cream truck around town. I’m sure it would have made a great business for someone if we only had the time and desire!

- 2 oz bittersweet chocolate bar chopped
- 2 1/4 cups half and half
- 1/3 cup sugar
- pinch salt
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup Bailey's Irish Cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla paste (or extract)
- 2 oz. bittersweet chocolate bar, chopped
- 1 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
- 1/4 cup crushed chocolate wafers
- In a medium saucepan over low heat melt 2 oz. chocolate.
- Whisk in half and half, sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder, salt
- Increase the heat to medium and whisk until slightly thickened (about 10 min)
- Remove from heat then add in Baileys; divide into 6 popsicle molds (add sticks) and freeze until firm (at least 4 hours)
- To make the glaze melt the other 2 oz. chocolate with coconut oil in microwave (check every 30 seconds until all melted)
- Unmold the popsicles; drizzle the fudgesicles then sprinkle with the crumbs - return to freezer to harden (about 5 minutes)
I unmolded the fudgesicles and kept in freezer until I was ready to do glaze. I would take one out at time, drizzle, sprinkle and immediately place back in freezer on wax paper to prevent too much melting of the fudgesicle.
