Homemade is always best, right?
I've always thought so.
My sweet friend *C* gave me this recipe last summer,
but, I did have the appropriate equipment.
Namely...popsicle moulds. When I searched for them,
they were all sold out. So, popsicle making had to wait.
The other day at WalMart I spotted some popsicle moulds,
and, even though it isn't summer yet, I snapped them up.
You know what happened then, right? You guessed it.
I whipped up a batch of these yummy chocolate treats.
Now it's your turn. Grab your popsicle moulds and get going.
Everyone in your home will thank you. Guaranteed.
That is, of course, if they like chocolate.
If they don't, I cannot help them.
However, that would mean there will be more for you.
That actually might be a good thing. Yippee! :)
