Mint Fudge Pops

Seems like I’ve been in such an “end of summer” mode lately. I also forgot for a second that I live in Florida. Just for a second though, until I walked outside. 

Here in Florida, we have a few more months of summer before we get into our fall. No winter. Since it is still summer, we are still trying to beat the heat. Nothing is more perfect to beat the heat than ice pops. I wanted to make some fudge pops, considering the fact that I was making ice pops all summer. 

I altered Alton Brown’s recipe a little and I think it was a WINNER!


Ingredients:
6 oz of semi sweet chocolate, chopped
4 oz of hot fudge
1 cup of heavy cream

3/4 cup of whole milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp mint extract
6-7 large fresh mint leaves, minced

Directions:
1. In a medium sauce pan, combine chopped chocolate, hot fudge, heavy cream, milk, vanilla and mint extract on medium heat. Cook, whisking constantly, with silicone covered whisk until all chocolate is melted and all ingredients are combined.

2. Add the minced mint, stir well and take off heat.

3. Divide the mixture between the molds and place in the freezer for at least 4 hours.

Enjoy!!

    I have some great memories of making Jell-O pudding pops all by myself. I thought I was a fantastic cook because of that. One of my all time favorite flavors is choco-mint. Nothing like homemade girlie.

    We have fresh mint growing but haven’t used it for anything yet! Thanks for the delicious idea!

    Okay, I could eat a jar hot fudge all by itself, no icream. Anything that uses it in the recipe has got to be good. I’d love it if you shared this over at my link party.
