SOPA SECA aka Mexican Dry Soup


Fudge popsicles......Chewy, fudgy, chocolatey, creamily, dreamily delicious frozen summer treats on a stick.  Don't you wish that summer would always be here?


10.  It's time to roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer.

9.  You get to go to the dollar store for some of those colourful popsicle molds with cute handles.

8.  It's been forever since you've sunk your teeth into icy, chewy, fudgy deliciousness.

7.  They're made with milk.  They must be loaded with calcium.  Calcium is good for you. 

6.  They're ridiculously easy to make.

5.  They keep forever in the freezer.  (hahahaha!  like they'll last more than a day!)

4.  Significant others will flash you the most seductive look you've seen in years.
     (But, alas, don't forget that look of love is for the fudgesicle, not you)

3.  If someone just drops by you can say, "Would you like a homemade fudgesicle?"

2.  It's fun to watch everyone's eyes roll back in pleasure when they taste these babies.

1.  No one will really ever know how many you made.

Makes enough to fill 12 of the little 2-ounce/each popsicle molds.

5 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (or Ovaltine for a malty twist)
2 1/2 cups whole milk (or when company comes, 2 cups milk + 1/2 cup heavy cream)
1/2 teaspoon sea or Kosher salt
1 teaspoon good vanilla extract
1 tablespoon butter

Melt chocolate chips in medium pot, over low heat, stirring, until melty smooth. Watch carefully, chocolate should not heat, only melt. Whisk in sugar, cornstarch, cocoa, milk and salt. Increase heat to medium.  Cook mixture, stirring or whisking, until it thickens, 5-8 minutes.  Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and butter until combined.

Set aside to cool slightly.  Pour into popsicle molds.  Let cool to room temperature.  Freeze. 

Unmold.  Lick.  Bite.  Chew.  Smile.  Lick.  Bite.  Giggle.  Chew.  Repeat.

Now I think I know what you may have been referring to on Facebook. They sound dreamy Judo and would have been perfect for the heat wave we experienced in Ontario on holiday.
