Fudgsicle?  Why, yes please!  These are so easy to make (other than the waiting for them to freeze part).  I found the molds at Wal-mart.  They are BPA free and under a dollar.  I originally bought them to make fruity popsicles.  However, we went to the beach and I was wanting ice cream.  Why do I always want ice cream at the beach?! …
