End of the week treat

After a hectic week, I thought we all needed a nice cool treat.  So the kids and I got busy, and made a very simple pudding recipe from from “all you” to turn into a healthier fudgey popsicle!

Pudding Recipe

  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch (we used tapioca starch)
  • 1/4 cup sugar (next time, we’ll try 1/8c)
  • 2 1/2 cups low-fat milk
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (we used dark chocolate chips)
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preparation

  • Mix cornstarch and sugar in a medium saucepan. Slowly drizzle in 1/2 cup milk, whisking until smooth, then whisk in remaining 2 cups milk. Turn heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium and whisk until thickened, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and add chocolate chips, butter and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.
  • Pour into silicone popsicle molds (we love Norpro popsicle molds), and throw in the freezer for a few hours.
  • Enjoy!!

This was a really simple treat that the kids could help make.  Caleb loves whisking, and Elise was mainly in charge of licking the spoons afterwards.
