Recipe adapted from On a Stick! by Matt Armendariz.
¼ cup semisweet chocolate chips
⅔ cups granulated sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons natural unsweetened cocoa powder
2½ cups whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1. Combine chocolate, sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder, and milk in a medium saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring frequently, until the mixture thickens, about 10 minutes as book says and it took only 5 minutes for me.. Remove from heat.
2. Let the mixture cool slightly (it should still be warm but not hot to the touch), and then pour into 8 popsicle molds. Freeze for 30 minutes, and then insert sticks. Freeze completely before serving.
