Thank you to Barlean’s for providing the product used in this recipe! All opinions are my own.
Peanut butter and chocolate… hands down, this is my favorite flavor combination! This year for #Choctoberfest, my mom found a recipe for fudgesicles with peanut butter, so I knew we had to give it a try. It also uses a ripe banana, and the banana flavor really shines through. YUM!
Instead of cocoa, we used Chocolate Silk Greens from one of our awesome #Choctoberfest sponsors, Barlean’s. This is the second year we’ve worked with Barlean’s products, and the results have always been really tasty for us! If you have kids, this is a why to sneak some extra fruits and veggies into their diet and they’ll never know the difference. My fiance, Jeffrey, also loves to use Barlean’s Chocolate Silk Greens to make chocolate milk. If you can’t have dairy, you can use almond milk, coconut milk, or soy milk instead. Plus, Barlean’s uses fair-trade cocoa in this product, which I love!
It’s been warmer than usual in our neck of the woods this October, so these fudgesickles were the perfect treat during a recent family get-together. They have a very strong banana flavor at first, but as you eat, the chocolate and peanut butter start to shine through.
My mom found these cute popsicle molds on sale, but if you don’t have them, you can still make these pops. Simply get some small disposable cups, fill with the mixture, then cover with heavy-duty tin foil and pop in a stick. The foil should hold the stick in place. Or you could freeze slightly and then insert the stick without the foil – you just have to remember to do so before they are frozen completely!
You could also use a lined loaf pan to make your pops. After lining with parchment paper or wax paper, add the mixture, cover with the foil, and insert the sticks, evenly spaced. Once frozen, lift out of the pan and use a sharp knife dipped in hot water to slice into individual pops.
Or use ice cube trays to make individual bit-sized pops.
