Hello friends….I have to say..its too darn hot for anything these days. Lucky for me, I prepped when I heard a heat wave was coming. I made a whole bunch of fudge pops and they are perfect to cool off! I just recently purchased ice pop molds but for my picture today, I used my old method on making these icy treats. 3 oz plastic cups and a spoon! It’s great because as the ice pop gets smaller, you have a spoon, ready to eat the rest of it with! Ok, too hot to type so on with the recipe! Hope it cools you down!
