Nothing says “summer” like the rich, creamy taste of a fudgesicle on a hot day. I love these delicious frozen treats, but I don’t like paying $4.99 for the stuff in the “brand name” ones:

Nonfat Milk, Maltodextrin, Sorbitol, Polydextrose, Cocoa Processed With Alkali, Whey, Palm Oil, Tricalcium Phosphate, Cellulose Gel, Cellulose Gum, Mono & Diglycerides, Malt Powder, Salt, Guar Gum, Aspartame, Polysorbate 80, Acesulfame Potassium, Artificial And Natural Flavor, Polysorbate 65, Citric Acid, Carrageenan, Caramel Color, Locust Bean Gum.

Yuck! I don’t want to eat that stuff or feed it to my family. Many homemade fudgesicle recipes use boxed pudding mix, which has a lot of the same junk in it.

These natural fudgesicles are full of rich chocolate flavor, without relying on chemical additives or artificial flavors. Your family will love them!

It's easy to make these delicious, homemade fudgesicles without boxed pudding or artificial ingredients.


  1. Put the milk, sugar, cornstarch, and cocoa powder in a saucepan and mix carefully over medium heat. A spring whisk will help make sure you get all the lumps out.
  2. Add the chocolate chips and cook, stirring frequently, until they are melted.
  3. Remove from heat, add the vanilla and butter, and stir until combined.
  4. Allow to cool slightly and then pour into popsicle molds. Freeze until solid (several hours to overnight).
  5. When it’s time to serve, dip the individual molds into hot water for a few seconds and they’ll pop right out.

  1. I just finished making them for the second time in two weeks. It’s only my Mom and me in the house, so we try to ration them out (which really means try not to eat all at once!). I don’t usually keep liquid milk in the house since it would spoil before being used up, so I’ve been using dry milk and water mixed for the 2.5 cups of milk and it works great. Is there a reason for putting ingredients in in stages? I put everything in at the start and haven’t had any issues with texture/taste/cooking time. Just wondered. Thanks from me and my wallet for the recipe. Mmmmmmm!

  2. Oh, yum. This looks like the perfect (chemical-free) summer treat. Thanks for sharing how to make it. Totally pinning it now. (Visiting from Fabulously Frugal Thursday link party.)

  3. Just what I have been looking for– summer usually has me craving those Wendy’s chocolate frostys– I’m afraid to know the ingredients in those.

    1. I have made homemade frostys that taste exactly like them! I will link recipe when I figure out how to do that lol

    These look creamy, chocolate-,y, and divine! Do you know of a non-GMO thickener I can substitute for the cornstarch?

  5. We don’t usually have whole milk, do you think you’d be able to sub that with Almond milk? Or do you need it for the creaminess?
