Reviews for Homemade Fudge Ice Pops
"Really good. All of my family loves it."
"Made this with my five year old, simple enough for her to help out extensively. We put ours in shaped ice cube trays for smaller servings. We jab a toothpick into the pop when it's time to eat it. Much less meltage that way."
"Made these for my 3 year old yesterday & we tried them today. We're not fans. Followed the recipe exactly, and maybe this is how they're supposed to be, but they were very chewy. More like eating hardened pudding. What a waste of ingredients & money. Will just buy them from now."
"Horrible, my 11 yr gson wouldn't even eat them. I followed the recipe exactly. Left a film in your mouth, butter maybe."
"I've never eaten a fudge pop that didn't taste like frozen pudding! mmmmmmm"
"Has anyone tried this with soy or coconut milk? We're a non-dairy household."
"After tweaking this recipe a bit, I would give it five stars. I cut down on the brown sugar, adding only 1/2 packed cup and also omitted the salt. When putting "batter" into cups, I swirled in peanut butter. I am looking forward to making this recipe again!"
"These taste like pudding that has hardened"
"Made these with my Special Needs class and they were a huge hit. Easy to do and tasty too!!!"
"I made the fudge pops for my grandchildren and friends little ones. I tried one and they are so tasty, they will be a repeat treat in our house."
"ParoGirl: Reduce the flour how much and how much half and half? I measure exactly."
"Mlf23: How much brown sugar would you use?"
"Very good! I would probably use less brown sugar next time because they were a little too sweet for me. Will make again for sure."
"We liked this alot! But next time I think I may make it less 'pudding' like by reducing the flour and adding a bit of half and half."
"that is cool that there is 20 servings because i have a family of 7!"
" Maybe to avoid all the preservatives, artificial colors and flavorings? I try to avoid as much artificial color and flavoring as I can. "
"Hi, PatriciaQ How did the homemade fudge pops with the Splenda brown sugar blend? Thanks Im Diabetic. MarS"
"I am going to try using skim milk and Splenda Brown Sugar Blend to bring the calories and carbohydrates down. I'll let you know how it turns out."
"The ones you buy have fewer calories, less carbs and are fat free. They are also better for diabetics as they don't have added sugar!!!"
"why go to all the trouble when you can buy them. And they are less calories."
"Can light butter be used instead of regular butter?"
"To add to the above comment... can Splenda be used for sugar free diets?"
"oh these look so good & sure to be a big hit, thanks for keep coming up with light desserts"
"can lo-calorie brown sugar be substituted for the regular brown sugar?"
