I do not have nostalgic feelings for fudgesicles because I was sheltered from sweets as a child and never encountered them.

When Joe buys them, they look a little gray-fudge, usually frozen over, and taste like brown ice.

But Joe loves them. And Smitten Kitchen posted a homemade recipe (which I saw on Cup of Jo because I can’t keep up with Smitten’s mad recipe making, and get overwhelmed, and only check once a month). And I have these popsicle molds from Ikea that have been waiting, begging, to be called into service.

They’re delicious. Fudgy to the max. And take about ten minutes to make (we froze them overnight).
