Irish Cream Fudgesicles

Here we are, the official middle of summer! Doesn’t time seem to speed up once July 4th is over? I hope you ate a lot of grilled everything and cooled down with a proper frozen beverage (slushy and sweet, preferably?).

Next thing you know we will all be freezing our buns off and I will be positioning myself just so to catch the heat vent (yuck, that sounds gross right now) on my toes. I still had a fair amount homemade vegan Irish cream left over from making a batch a while ago and also wanted to play around with freezing up boozy popsicles to battle the heat.  I could have made cocktails for weeks, but really, I’ll take my booze in frozen form as long as the humidity is reaching unfortunate proportions.

Conclusion: Say yes to boozy pops! The key is to make sure the ratio of alcoholic liquid to non-boozy liquid is enough to ensure a solid freeze.  If too much Irish cream booze is involved, the pops melt too fast to enjoy.  If not enough booze is involved, the flavor  falls to the wayside and the result is just a frozen milk cube.  To offset the boozy popsicles I decided to drop in a shot of fudge in each and ohhh yes we are talking now.  Fudgy boozy heaven, is there really any other kind?

P.S. You could probably also use this same formula and make some awesome homemade horchata popsicles! Let’s just keep frozen boozing it up, shall we?

Irish Creme Fudgesicles

Ingredients

  • 2 cups vegan Irish Creme (make your own!)
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • For the fudge:
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons almond milk

Instructions

  1. Whisk together Bailey's, almond milk, and vanilla in medium sized bowl. Set aside.
  2. Combine chocolate chips and 3 tablespoons almond milk in small microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, stirring and microwaving in 10 second increments until melted.
  3. Pour Irish Cream mixture into popsicle molds, distributing evenly.
  4. Drop about 1 teaspoon of fudge into each popsicle, allowing to drip into creme mixture. As the popsicles melt, the fudge will float throughout the popsicles.
  5. Freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight, running warm water over molds to loosen popsicles.

    These sound delicious! Unfortunately it’s the middle of winter here in Australia, but come summer I’ll make them for sure.

    Any pointers on how to get the fudge part mixed in with the irish creme mixture? It seems that all of the chocolate has gone to the tip and it is frozen harder than he rest of the creme pop. Currently I’m trying to re freeze and then I am going to set my mold in a shallow bowl of warm water to see if I can get the chocolate to thaw more uniformly with the rest of the pop.

      Hi Jessica! So sorry you are having troubles with them! I would say since you’ve already made them the warm water may help to get the chocolate to thaw. Otherwise, it can be tricky. The chocolate mixture has to be lighter or the same density as the creme mixture in order to not sink to the bottom. Let me know how they turn out!

        I am going to try a second batch and pay close attention to the chocolate mixture. I ended up scraping the mixture out of the mold and calling it a granita….still tasty! :)
