mChocolate ‘Paddlepop’ IcePops Recipe

Keep your children happy this summer with this fabulously delicious homemade chocolate paddlepop recipe!

My kids just adore chocolate paddlepops, but it can get expensive buying them for them all the time. But then I found this cheap and easy recipe for homemade chocolate paddlepops and I’ve saved so much money! I’ll be making this recipe all throughout the summer, as my kids just can’t get enough of them.

I freeze the mixture in our wonderful silicone icepops tubes, making it easy for the kids to eat mess-free. I can make a batch of these icepops in the evening and they’ll be nice and frozen ready to enjoy the next day.

This homemade alternative to the popular frozen treat is simple to make — let me tell you how!

You need half a litre of milk for starters. If you wanted to go even cheaper, you could use milk powder if preferred, but I used just regular light milk from my fridge.

Pour the milk into a saucepan, bring it to the boil and then add a tablespoon of sugar, a tablespoon of cocoa, and a tablespoon of cornflour — that’s it!!

Stir constantly until thickened. This is the hard part as it can take a couple of minutes for the mixture to thicken. Then allow the mixture to cool and pour into the silicone icepops moulds. Freeze for at least three hours or overnight.

These icepops turn out exactly like the expensive store-bought version, and the kids just adore them!

Give them a try for yourself!
