Also- it helps to have a husband who actually LIKES baking stuff.
Andrew reads "Smitten Kitchen" (as do I) and he decided that it was time to make Fudgesicles. Yay!
It involved seven ingredients (I forgot to add sugar to this list...), about 20 minutes (max) and a popsicle mold. He followed Smitten Kitchen's recipe (except sans salt since our butter was salted) and within four hours they were ready for sampling.
Ummmm..... can we just say DELICIOUS?
Affordable and potentially much more sustainable, these DIY fudgesicles are a fantastic way to treat yourself. We still have a ton of ingredients to make five-ish more batches easily. Much cheaper than buying them in the store.
Also, now that we know they taste like yummy-ness, more local sustainable ingredients can be purchased. Like using the local milk, fair trade organic chocolate chips and cocoa powder.
If you're thinking of something fun to invest in this summer- reusable popsicle molds are the way to go!
