The St. Louis summer has arrived, time to pull out every weapon we have against the heat and humidity: water balloons, watermelon, and popsicles. Most of the time, my kids like the store-bought versions of sweets better than my DIY “healthier” versions. However, these DIY fudge popsicles came out on top compared to ones that come in a wrapper. They’re simple to make, and contain two different sources of chocolate + a creamy yogurt base. That’s a refreshing summer fudge popsicle win for everyone.
