Spicy Fudgesicles


  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 4 hours 20 minutes

about 14 to 16 fudgesicles


8 ounces good quality bittersweet chocolate, chopped fine

1-1/2 cups heavy cream

1 cup whole milk

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

2 teaspoons Spice Islands® Pure Vanilla Extract

1-1/2 teaspoons Spice Islands® Ground Saigon Cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon (or to taste) Spice Islands® Cayenne Pepper

1/8 teaspoon (or to taste) Spice Islands® Chipotle Chile Powder

Sugar (optional)


Chop chocolate and place in a bowl.

Combine heavy cream, milk and cocoa powder in a medium saucepan over medium heat.  Whisk constantly until cocoa is dissolved and mixture comes to a simmer.

Remove from heat and pour over the chocolate.  Let stand for 2 to 3 minutes and then whisk gently until all chocolate is melted.  Mix in vanilla and cinnamon.   Add the cayenne and chili powder to taste. 

Fill popsicle molds (recipe makes 3-1/2 cups) and freeze about 4 hours, until set.  If the frozen fudgesicle is too spicy, coat one side in sugar after removing from mold.  To do, sprinkle sugar on wax paper or a plate.  Place 1 side of fudgesicle on sugar.
