79. fudge popsicles

Before we left for work/school this morning, Milo and I quickly made these fudge popsicles from Smitten Kitchen; only we veganized them. They were so so good! They tasted like creamy fudgey goodness.

Makes 4 standard-sized popsicles (3 ounces each)

2 tablespoons vegan chocolate chips
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups soymilk
Pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 tablespoon earth balance

In the bottom of a medium saucepan over very low heat, gently melt the chocolate chips, stirring constantly until smooth. Stir in sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder, milk and salt and raise heat to medium. Cook mixture, stirring frequently until it thickens, anywhere between 5 minutes and 10 Remove from heat, add vanilla and butter and stir until combined.

Set aside to cool slightly then pour into popsicle molds. Freeze 30 minutes, then insert popsicle sticks. Freeze the rest of the way before serving.
