Summer is the perfect time for cool treats, right?! I mean what could be better on a steamy hot day than something ice cold and chocolaty that cools you down just thinking about it. You know, things like Death by Chocolate Ice Cream, Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches, Grasshopper Pie and Fudgsicle-like popsicles.

Just the thought of Fudgsicles brings me back to my childhood. I can still remember my cousin and I getting on our bikes and heading down to the local store to hit up their freezer for our favorite chocolaty icy popsicles. Smooth, creamy, frozen deliciousness on a stick – oh yeah! And these popsicles I’m bringing you today are even better, more like a gourmet with a capital “G” version. The French Farm, one of our great sponsors, sent me samples of several of their items, one of them being their Chocolate Pistachio Spread and WOW-o-WOW is it ever rich and fudgy! I can just see using this to make extra-special brownies, muffins or even donuts. OK, now I’m really craving something sweet!

Of course, this being the middle of summer and hot, hot, hot, I decided nothing would be better than ice cold, gourmet-style Fudgsicles aptly named, you guessed it, Chocolate Pistachio Popsicles.

They are so simple to make. All you need is a blender and some popsicle molds. Once they are ready to eat you can have all sorts of fun with them. In today’s version I just dipped them in some chopped pistachio nuts but you could set up your own popsicle bar and let the kids (and I use that term loosely ’cause big kids have fun too) dip them into their favorite toppings. Just place bowls out with sprinkles, toasted coconut and chopped nuts and let the fun begin. You can even add some melted chocolate to use for drizzle. Now what type of monster popsicle would you create?
