Summer is in full swing here in the Deep South. Humidity is at a constant 104% (just kidding… sorta), the sun is out from 6:45am-8:30pm, and a cool day is considered a high of 92 degrees. My cutie-muffin toddler has decided she needs at LEAST one “poppy-sicle” a day in order to function, and I don’t blame her. After 2 boxes of the store-bought kind, I picked up a cheap plastic Popsicle Mold at Wal-Mart ($0.88 for an 8-popsicle mold!) and brought it home for an afternoon of poppy-sicle making. Nutella is a staple in our house (um, duh), so we decided the only thing better than eating a spoonful of Nutella right out of the jar, would be eating a cold, fudgy Nutella popsicle. They turned out to be quite a hit, so we are sharing our grab-your-toddler-and-let-them-help-you, super-easy recipe with you. Here ya go!
Jar of Nutella
Milk (almond, soy, rice, coconut, regular milk… whatever kind you use!)
-Mix 3-4 big spoonfuls of Nutella in a large cup or bowl with about 1/4 cup (or thereabouts) of milk. Mix until you get a creamy consistency, and milk & Nutella are mixed together. Might look a little grainy, but that’s okay! You may need to add a little more milk to get a pourable, fudgy consistency. Pour into your popsicle molds (I would suggest your toddler to taste it to make sure it tastes okay, of course… someone has to take one for the team), and pop in the freezer overnight. To get the popsicle out, I had to run warm water over the mold for about 45 seconds, but then it popped right out, and Nutella Fudge Poppy-sicles were enjoyed by all.
Happy Summer! 🙂
