Mexican Hot Chocolate Popsicles

Fudgesicles en Fuego!

A heat wave here in San Francisco inspired me to continue my popsicle kick. This time I combined childhood memories of fudgesicles with a passion for Mexican hot chocolate. Mexican hot cocoa is traditionally made with milk, chocolate, cinnamon, and a touch of chili. When frozen it translates terrifically into a fiery chocolate popsicle, aptly named fudgesicles en fuego!

The rich, chocolaty popsicles have a silky, creamy texture and slightly spicy flavor. To avoid making the popsicles too hot, add the chili slowly to taste. However, remember that once frozen, the flavor will be more subtle. If the finished popsicle is too spicy, simply dust with sugar.

To learn how to make these fantastic fudgesicles,

Ingredients

  1. 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped fine
  2. 12 ounces (1 1/2 cups) heavy cream
  3. 8 ounces (1 cup) whole milk
  4. 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  5. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  6. 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  7. 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  8. Sugar (optional)

Directions

  1. Chop chocolate and place in a bowl.
  2. Combine heavy cream, milk, and cocoa powder in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk constantly until cocoa is dissolved and mixture comes to a simmer.

  3. Remove from the heat and pour over the chocolate. Let stand for 2 to 3 minutes and then whisk gently until all chocolate is melted. Mix in vanilla, cinnamon. Slowly add the cayenne to taste.
  4. Fill popsicle molds and wait patiently. If the frozen popsicle is too spicy, coat one side in sugar.

Makes 16 popsicles.

lol, I guess you should use a different mold for a popsicle that color!

Of course you could use a pre-made Mexican hot chocolate but the recipe is really easy and probably didn't take me longer than a half hour! I will be on the look out for some new molds for chocolate popsicles! ;)

I thought they looked festive and delicious until you said that about the mold shape...now I think I'd have to go with something simpler. I'll be trying this recipe soon!

Shoneyjoe- Haha they kinda do look like that but I'm sure they'd taste amazing. I have to try these.

Those *sound* amazing, but I don't think I'd use those molds. Kind of looks like a turd on a stick. But they sound tasty.
