You are going to fall in love with these easy and delicious Mocha Almond Fudge Pudding Pops! Just perfect for hot summer days!
Dude! It has been H-O-T hot these past few weeks. Blazing hot. And naturally, on days when we have a swim meet, the sun likes to turn it up a notch to really make us suffer.
Good news? This past weekend marked the end of the swim season for us. Hallelujah! I actually really enjoy swim season but I have to admit I’m pretty to excited to reclaim my evenings and Saturdays every week – what in the world will I do with all that time??
We are always looking for delicious ways to cool down during the hot summer days…enter today’s recipe: Mocha Almond Fudge Pops. I kinda sorta made these for me. Like, only for me. Mama needs her treats too! I think we all know by now that I like mocha EVERYTHING and Mocha Almond Fudge just happens to be one of my favorite ice cream flavors. Shocker, I know.
I slipped up and let the boys see me making the pops. I kindly told them that they were for me and that I’d make them something else later. Well, later never happened and they jumped right in when I was taking pics. Once they tasted these pops, they were HISTORY. Like, demolished, devoured, GONE.
But don’t you worry about me…I promptly made up another batch and they are sitting in the freezer (hidden) waiting for a quiet moment when the kids are playing in their rooms and I can sneak one for myself. #meanmommy
So these fudge pops are a breeze to make – like, it just doesn’t get much easier. I used Almond Breeze Chocolate Almondmilk and a few teaspoons of espresso powder to get that awesome mocha flavor. Whisked in a packet of chocolate pudding mix and you’re more than halfway there. A handful of chopped almonds and mini chocolate chips and tada – Mocha Almond Fudge Pudding Pops!
I let my pops sit in the freezer for about an hour before adding the sticks and a sprinkling of chopped almonds or mini chocolate chips to the base of the pops. Totally not necessary. I just like to feel pampered when I’m sitting on the couch watching Real Housewives and eating my Mocha Almond Fudge Pops. #dontjudge
Seriously, these pudding pops are ridiculously good and are the BEST way to cool off on a hot summer day – promise!
