10 min


  • 1 oz dark chocolate 
(70% or higher), chopped
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 tbsp organic evaporated cane juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp unsweetened 
cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract (Try: Simply Organic Vanilla Extract)

  • 2 tsp arrowroot starch (Note: Typically, we don't recommend using arrowroot with dairy, but here it helped us achieve the fudgy texture we were looking for!)

  • Pinch sea salt


  • 4 2-oz pop molds


  1. In a medium saucepan on medium, melt chocolate. Add milk, cane juice, cocoa and vanilla; whisk until combined. Whisk in arrowroot and salt. Cook for 4 minutes or until thickened, whisking constantly. Transfer to a small bowl, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Spoon mixture into 4 2-oz pop molds. Freeze for at least 4 hours, or overnight. To remove, run warm water over outside of each mold to release pops.
