Sweet Cream Cold Brew Fudgesicles.
We all need a huge dose of caffeine on a Monday.
Oh my gosh. Heaven in a popsicle. IT’S HERE.
Even my 2010 self is freaking out over these cold brew fudgesicles. Homemade fudgesicles kicked up a notch with cold brew! And topped with vanilla sweet cream. Back in the days when I hated coffee, I still would have went crazy over these.
It’s popsicle week!!
Every year, Billy from Wit and Vinegar hosts a fabulous popsicle week where we all share our favorite variations. I was almost stumped this year. I’ve done so many different ones that I love and if I’m going to post something on my blog, it has to be something I really freaking LOVE.
I’ve made rainbow froyo popsicles which are probably my favorites.
But the salted watermelon margarita ones are really delish too!
I also made chewy caramel cashew coconut pops last year. That combo is to DIE for.
They are just such a great snack or dessert. Oh and speaking of that: LATE NIGHT SNACKSICLES! How could I forget?
Here’s what we have in 2018: sweet cream cold brew fudgsicles. YES. Fudgesicles. That’s what I determined would be the best.
Not just coffee pops. Not just coffee and cream pops. But a vanilla sweet cream on top that melts into the fudge popsicle made with cold brew. SO freaking good.
And you know what I really think make these are incredible? The ingredients I used – they are amazing. I used rodelle vanilla bean paste for the sweet cream. For the fudgesicles, I used chameleon cold brew and see’s dark chocolate chips. Both are SO good on their own and I am convinced that the reason these taste so chocolaty and, well… like, high-quality fudge pops? It’s because of those things.
The only down side of these pops is that I didn’t (err, couldn’t?) let Max have one. Well… probably could have. Maybe. I mean, much to Eddie’s dismay, Max loves the taste of coffee. He actually begs for sips of coffee every morning (usually only iced) and now he’s even taken to asking for his own iced coffee! What the heck? He is THREE.
No, I obviously don’t give him said iced coffee but it’s rather cute. And funny considering how much Eddie loathes all things coffee.
OMG! I also have to tell you about this popsicle mold. It is BY FAR the best that I have tried. And I think that I’ve tried over 10 different popsicle molds because I tested them for both of my cookbooks.
This stainless steel mold is pricier than the other ones I’ve bought over the years but I cannot even tell you how perfect the popsicles come out. You truly run the pop under water (hot or cold, doesn’t matter!) ONCE and the pop loosens and comes out intact. Seriously the best. I also love that it comes with this fancy popsicle holder. The size is great too because they aren’t giant. Go get it, get it!
And now, for your afternoon jolt.
Sweet Cream Cold Brew Fudgesicles
- 1 cup half and half
- 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 3 tablespoons dutch processor cocoa powder
- 3 tablespoons chocolate chips/chunks
- 1 1/2 cups cold brew coffee
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon butter
- In a large measuring cup or bowl, whisk together the half and half, condensed milk and vanilla bean paste. Fill up the popsicle molds with about 1 to 2 ounces of cream mixture. Place the pops in the freezer to let this layer firm up for 30 to 60 minutes.
- Heat the sugar, cornstarch, cocoa, coffee and milk in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly until until the mixture thickens. Remove it from the heat and whisk in the vanilla extract and the butter. Let the mixture cool to room temperature.
- Once cooled, remove the molds from the freezer and finish filling each mold with the cold brew mixture. Freeze the pops for 4 to 6 hours.

Ohhh I’ve been eyeing that popsicle mold – I think I need to just take the plunge and buy it! These popsicles sound so so good. Can’t wait to try!
it is the best!
Yum! These are suitable for breakfast then right? There are coffee after all. My stepdaughter has been in love with coffee since she was Max’s age and she used to steal sips of my iced coffee all the time. So much so we started getting her, her own in decaf of course. She is still a HUGE coffee lover to this day. Will definitely have to make these this summer.
love that!! maybe i should get him a decaf, haha.
Helloooooo, fudgesicle buzz realness.
Yummy. Thanks for sharing such a mouth watering recipe.
Oh my goodness!! I am obsessed with the cold brew popsicles from Trader Joe’s, but these sound even better! And that popsicle mold is going right into my amazon cart. I am so sick of dealing with crappy molds!
they are SO good!!
Looks so yum! But where do the See’s chocolate chips come in? I don’t see them in the recipe.
ah so sorry! you melt them in with the sugar and cornstarch, milk, coffee mixture!. :)
Got it, thanks!
These look incredible, Jessica! Making them ASAP!
thank you! xo
These look so amazing!!! I just bought a popsicle mold this weekend at Target and can’t wait to try it out! I think it’s so cute that Max loves coffee already :)
Oh my gosh! How have I not known about popsicle week? Must make these!
Milk chocolate or semi sweet? Do you just get the chips at the store front? Thanks!
Your story about Max reminds me of my nephew when he was around the same age. He used to always ask us for sips of our coffee, but we all drank caffeinated except my mom. It got to the point that he’d ask if a drink had alcohol or caffeine it in before asking for a sip! Eventually, my mom started buying him his own small iced decaf coffee which she had watered down big time before giving him and he was in heaven. I can only imagine how he or Max would be on a full cup of caffeine! :)
I was that kid who wanted coffee and at the time my parents drank coffee for every meal – this was the 40s, after all. As long as I drank milk, they’d pour a bit in it and I loved it. It was just enough to smell and kind of taste, really but it worked. At some point I got over it and had no desire for coffee til I went to college.

These look to die for but my freezer is so tiny that there are no room for a popsicle mold. Do you think I could try a rectangular container and try to adapt. Maybe even swirl the cream in the coffee brew? What do you think?
My godparents were Danish and very Continental in their ways. So, we always had everything the grownups had at family get togethers. We had little demitasse cups of very watered down coffee with so much milk that they were barely off white, and even thimble size glasses of about 1 part cream sherry to 9 parts water when the grownups had theirs. People are horrified now to even think about that, but my cousin and I have never had any of the fascination with drinking that our friends had because it was no forbidden mystery to us. I have to laugh — if they’d given us full strength coffee or sherry, we would have hated it and refused to drink it! But they (my godparents) wanted us to be little adults, and grow up to be sophisticated and well-mannered. Whatever anyone’s opinion of that style of “parenting,” I feel like I had a very rich childhood and learned very early on to appreciate good food. ;)
BTW, these look amazing! Thanks!
