Fudge Bars

305

You'll need pop molds and time for freezing. But the payoff will be delicious.

  • Prep:
  • Total Time:
  • Yield: Makes 10

Source: Everyday Food, July/August 2012

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk, divided
  • 1 1/3 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together cornstarch and 2 tablespoons milk until smooth; whisk in remaining milk, cream, sugar, cocoa, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high, stirring constantly, and cook 1 minute.

  2. Transfer to a large liquid-measuring cup and stir in vanilla. Pour into 10 3-ounce ice-pop molds and insert ice-pop sticks. Freeze until pops are solid, about 6 hours (or up to 1 week). Just before serving, briefly run molds under hot water to release pops.

Cook's Notes

Go with a standard pop shape, like we did here, or try another fun mold. You can also use small paper cups -- simply tear to unmold.

    O the fudginess of it all!!!! Whirred it about 6 minutes in Vitamix. Then pulsed in the vanilla extract....delicious...Came out fantastic. Almost bypassed this recipe because of the low rating but glad I read the review and made it. Should be 10 stars....I find' t want to use hard chocolate. Used Guittard coco powder . This would be great with any coco.

    My kids and I made these at noon today, so simple, and with ingredients you have in the house. We just tried them for dessert after dinner and…OMG!!!! The freezer will be stocked this summer with Fudge Bars! Easy to make and delicious. Thanks Sarah Carey.
