Do-it-Yourself Fudge Pops!


GMA Recipe: Do-it-Yourself Fudge Pops!
by Jeanne Dupuis on May 27th, 2008


Summertime is fast-approaching and, in no time, you’ll be wishing you had something cool and tasty to grab from your freezer! While I love the stuff you get from grocery and corner stores, it’s also nice to be able to make something delicious if you don’t feel like going out or even if you want to have more control over the flavor and fat content of your treats!

Good Morning America featured a couple recipes for do-it-yourself frozen fudge pops and the great thing is that, for lighter versions, fat-free half-and-half can be substituted in either recipe! Also, as I mentioned above, it’s nice to be able to control the taste of your own snacks so, again, substitutions can be made in these recipes: the cherry jam in the Chocolate Cherry Fudge Pops can be replaced with any jam. Raspberry, apricot and strawberry are nice. And peanut butter is excellent in the Chocolate Marshmallow Pops.

Serving numbers will vary depending on the size of your frozen pop molds.

Chocolate Cherry Fudge Pops (makes about 8 servings)

Ingredients
* 1 1/2 cups half-and-half
* 1 cup chocolate chips
* 1/2 cup cherry jam
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* Pinch salt

Directions
In a medium saucepan over low heat, combine the half-and-half and chocolate chips. Heat, stirring constantly, until the chips are melted. Transfer the mixture to a blender, being sure to scrape the chocolate from the bottom of the pan.

Add the jam, vanilla and salt, then puree for 30 seconds, or until smooth. Divide the mixture between about 8 frozen pop molds (number will vary by size), then insert sticks according to product directions. Freeze for at least several hours.

Ingredients
* 1/2 cup heavy cream

Transfer the mixture to a blender, being sure to scrape the chocolate from the bottom of the pan.
