fudgesicles

well, this is apparently something that everyone does, but that no one told me about…

homemade fudgesicles!

i made these at our camp in new hampshire. since it’s a good 20 or so minute drive from the nearest grocery store, having ice cream up there has always been nearly impossible. (could i bring a cooler to the store? yes. have i ever? no. i prefer to think of ice cream as the forbidden fruit when i’m there. it’s just always been that way.)

anyway, once i heard about this technique, i knew they were perfect for making at the camp. after all, that’s always been where i was allowed to eat things i wasn’t normally allowed to eat at home, like store-bought cookies, powdered ice tea mix, potato chips…

so. start by making a box of instant pudding mix.

when it cools to room-ish temp, pour into molds or, because i didn’t bring mine, paper dixie cups.

add sticks – popsicle sticks or whatever you have around. if your pudding isn’t thick enough right away, throw them in the freezer for 10 minutes or so, then add the sticks. mine were fine right away.

i froze them overnight, and, boy, were they tasty! great texture, flavor… i’m totally going to make them again.

but now it’s time to get fancy! layers of graham cracker crumbs and marshmallow fluff? somehow a mint layer? a peanut butter swirl? vanilla pudding with berries stirred in? have you done this? what else do you recommend?
