Looking back to my childhood, I remember our freezer being well stocked with frozen desserts, especially in the summer time. Some were great (gotta love a classic ice cream sandwich), some were not so much (anything with nuts – WHY?!) but my ultimate favorite was fudgesicles. Because, let’s face it – you just can’t go wrong with a silky smooth frozen bar of chocolate awesomeness.
I’m sure if you handed me one right now, I wouldn’t hesitate to make it disappear. But even though you can’t go wrong with the classic, I do think it can be improved upon. As with pretty much everything else, the homemade version is simply better. The dark chocolate is slightly less sweet and more intense. I added a healthy dose of fleur de sel, which pairs beautifully with dark chocolate. My only problem now is trying to stop at just one.
