Recipe: Dark chocolate fudge pie pop
- 20–25 Popsicle sticks
- 1 9-inch refrigerated pie dough, at room temperature
- 1 egg white, beaten
- 1 (3.9 ounce) box chocolate fudge instant pudding mix
- 11⁄2 cups heavy cream
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
- 5⁄8 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 2 tablespoons butter
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2 Soak sticks in water for 15 minutes.
3 On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out to 1⁄8-inch thickness.
4 Use a 3-inch rectangular shape cookie cutter to cut out dough bottoms.
5 Place bottoms on a lightly greased baking sheet. Push sticks into bottoms and use leftover dough to cover tips of sticks. Brush dough with egg white and prick with a fork. Bake for 11–13 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
6 In a medium bowl, combine pudding mix and cream. Beat with an electric mixer on high speed until smooth and thick. Spoon pudding into a pastry bag with a large opening tip and pipe onto pops. Place in refrigerator to chill.
7 In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine chocolate chips, condensed milk, and butter. Heat in microwave on high for 2 minutes stirring every 20 seconds until mixture is smooth. Pour into candy mold of choice and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to set.
8 Pop candy pieces out and garnish tops of pie pops. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Makes 20-25 pie pops.
