Happy [Early] Fathers Day!!!
To my father, and all the wonderful, hard working fathers out there – happy fathers day weekend!  Thank you for everything you do :).
This is for you…
thought and thought and thought of what I wanted to make my dad for fathers day.
I wanted it to be perfect.
I wanted it be thoughtful.
I wanted it be something he liked.
I wanted it to be something that reminded me of him.
How could I sum that all up into one dessert?  And so I continued thinking and thinking and I think I got it!
… Fudgesicles …
Fudgesicles don’t scream fathers day.  But it does to me.  We’ll not necessarily fathers day, but more so reminds me of my dad.  I remember me and my dad eating fudgecsicles when I was young.  It wasn’t a huge thing when I was young, just a small thing that reminds me of my dad.  Its such a small memory, but its those smaller memories that mean something.
Here you go dad, I made you a fudgesicle!  Have as many as you like 🙂.
One for me and one for you!
A fudgesicle is a fudge popsicle.  It’s chocolaty, fudgy, and delicious.  And you can make them in no time.  It takes no more than 15 minutes to make the liquid fudge.  Then you pour the fudge in cups and freeze.  I froze mine overnight to be sure they were fully frozen.
I  made these on a very very very hot day!  So you can see they started melting within minutes of taking them out of the freezer.  Unless you have an icebox for a kitchen, I would recommend enjoying these right out the freezer.  But they do look yummy all melting and messy, don’t they?!
Enjoy the fudgy goodness on a stick 🙂!

Makes: 4-6 Popsicles, depending on the side of your cups/molds
For the Fudge
½ cup Sugar
2 tbsp. Cornstarch
2 tbsp. Cocoa Powder (I used Valrhona)
2 ½ cups Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 tbsp. Unsalted Butter
To Assemble the Popsicles
4-6 5-ounce Plastic or paper cups
4-6 Wooden popsicle sticks
Or you can use a popsicle mold if you have one
In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder, and milk.  On medium heat, whisking constantly, heat up the mixture until it thickens – about 10-20 minutes.  Remove the mixture from the heat and whisk in the vanilla and butter.
Pour the fudge into the cups/molds evenly.  Place in the freezer for 10 minutes.  Stick one popsicle stick in the middle of each popsicle.  Complete freezing until firm, at least 4 hours.
Serve and Enjoy 🙂!

    Hey Krissy,

    At first I didn’t remember and then it hit me!!! The fudgesicle and the chocolate all over your face (and down your bib when you were a baby ’cause mom hated you guys getting dirty)!!! Thanks so much for your special gift because I know you put your best into it, which has always been incredible. This is the first Father’s day I won’t be with you but I want you to know that the best Father’s day for me is every day you call me dad. No matter what I do with the rest of my life, just know that being Krissy and Melissa’s dad is the best thing I’ve ever done.

    Love you!!!
    Dad

    Happy Father’s Day Vinny…
    You are indeed blessed by all 3 of your ladies!
    Krissy, we love seeing all that you create and just wish we could be at the end of the finished product.
    Presley and Hayden really wish they could be eating those fudgesicles in this 98+ degree weather.
    I may try them for Shaun when he and Kerri get back.
    Ciao,
