Mocha Fudge Pops

These mocha fudge pops are actually frozen cupcakes on a stick. I used flourless chocolate cake with a splash of Kahlua that essentially tastes like frozen fudge..

Ingredients

  • 1/2 C Kahlua I used my homemade Kahlua
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 C white sugar
  • 18 oz bittersweet chocolate chopped into small pieces
  • 1 C unsalted butter room temperature
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 egg whites
  • 3 tsp or more if you are a big coffee fan instant coffee, optional
  • 8 cookie sticks or popsicle sticks
  • 8 baking cups I prefer using the tall standalone kind for popsicles. I don't think that they make the exact kind that I used anymore, but here is a link to a similar baking cup.

Instructions

  • Combine the Kahlua, salt, and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until completely dissolved and set aside.
  • Either in the top half of a double boiler or in a microwave oven, melt the bittersweet chocolate.
  • Pour the melted chocolate into the bowl of an electric mixer.
  • Beat the butter into the chocolate.
  • Beat in the hot sugar-Kahlua mixture.
  • Slowly beat in the eggs and the egg whites.
  • Optionally, mix in the instant coffee. (I did not do this in the video. Adding the instant coffee will give the pops a stronger coffee flavor. Without it, the chocolate is by far the dominant flavor.)
  • Place the baking cups on a cookie sheet.
  • Fill the baking cups almost all the way to the top.
  • Bake cupcakes at 300 F for 30 minutes. The center will still look wet.
  • Allow the cupcakes to come to room temperature. You may want to eat some of them while they are still hot. I won't hold it against you. If you watch the video, you'll see that I did. :)
  • Insert the cookie sticks into the center of each cupcake.
  • Place the cupcake in the freezer for at least two hours (overnight is best).
  • Remove from the freezer, peel the paper, and eat!
