Grownup fudgsicles!

Easier than you could possibly believe! The hardest part was finding popsicle molds. After checking at Target (online only) and Bed Bath and Beyond (too expensive for an experiment) I went to my neighbor Sharon. She has 2 daughters out of college and, as I suspected, at the back of a bottoms kitchen cabinet was a classic set of Tupperware molds. SCORE! I wish I got a photo of her later in the day eating one of these yummies – it was after 5pm and still over 90 degrees; she looked like a happy kid.

Melt 5 ounces of semisweet chocolate in 1/2 cup of strong coffee or espresso. (I used cold brew concentrate) this took 8 minutes in my microwave at 50% power. Just bring it up to really soft and then stir until liquid. Add 2 teaspoons of corn syrup or honey to minimize crystals when freezing, a teaspoon of vanilla and a pinch of kosher salt. Pour into molds and freeze. There was enough for 8 popsicles. With only 6 molds in the set, I used 1/4 cup silicone prep bowls for the rest.

By the way, these guys come in at inter 110 calories each!
