- 2 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped
- 2/3 C heavy cream
- 1/4 C whole milk
- 1/2 Tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/2 Tbsp vanilla
2. In a medium saucepan, combine cream, milk, and cocoa powder over medium-high heat, whisking constantly. Bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and pour mixture over chocolate. Let sit for 2 minutes without stirring.
3. Whisk together until chocolate is melted, whisk in vanilla. Refrigerate until cool.
4. Stir cooled sauce to re-combine. Insert stick into mold, pour sauce into prepared Zoku, and let stand until frozen, 10-12 minutes.
Yield: 3 Zoku pops
Robyn's notes: the texture of these is exactly what I look for in a fudgsicle. Remove from Zoku slowly, the soft consistency wants to stick. It'll be fine if removed gently but will be a disaster if you force it. I also thought these were great with some banana coins in the mold first. Does not store well, I had some leftover in the fridge overnight and it had thickened to a point the following day that I had to defrost the Zoku to get the popsicle out (and I'd stirred it a lot before pouring it in the mold).
*** 3 Stars: Good. At least one of us liked this enough for me to make it again, but not often
