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.
