Spicy Chocolate Fudgesicles

This weekend I made another kind of popsicle - spicy chocolate fudgesicles! AND I made them in the monster popsicle molds Aaron got me for Christmas. I love them. It's like eating one eyed monster brains.

The fudgesicles were delicious. The best popsicles I have made yet.

Here is the recipe - adapted from Alton Brown's fudgesicles.

Spicy Chocolate Fudgesicles

8 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

1 1/2 cups heavy cream

1 cup milk

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

2 teaspoons vanilla

Sprinkle of cayenne pepper (to taste)

Pinch of salt

Pour the chocolate chips in a bowl. Bring cream, milk, and cocoa powder to a simmer over medium heat in a saucepan. Pour the milk mixture over the chocolate chips and whisk together until smooth. Add in cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Sprinkle on cayenne to taste. Fill popsicle molds and freeze.
