Homemade Fudgesicles

Whether you are trying to find inexpensive treats for a diabetic, you are watching your calories, or wanting to control the high fructose corn syrup in your foods, Finding a sweet treat can be a challenge!

I've got a great recipe for making your own fudgesicles. With a few simple ingredients, you will never buy a box of them again!  Another great thing about this recipe is that you use your powdered milk from your food storage!

I used splenda, but feel free to use sugar or half sugar/half sweetener to your liking.

Sugar Free Fudgesicles
makes 12-24 pops depending on the size of your molds
(mine made 16 pops from the dollar store molds)

Set aside.  In microwave safe bowl, or in medium sauce pan over stove top, boil 4 cups water.  Slowly wisk in dry ingredients, till well blended and continue to cook an  additional 1 minute.

Master Mix: Brownie Mix

Making a bulk batch of this Master Brownie Mix will not only save you money, it lets you make delicious treats at a moments notice, and control the ingredients over those store bought convenience mixes!

This can be made with regular sugar or a sugar substitute for a sugar free brownie mix. I made mine with Splenda, but you can choose any sweetener that measures the same as sugar for baking. (You could even do half sugar half Splenda for a low sugar /lower calorie brownie if you wanted too!)


Jan's tip:I made only half a batch today, since we are empty nesters and won't be feeding hungry kids anytime soon! So my picture of the mix is half of the recipe you'll be making!
