Happy weekend, friends! If frozen, fabulous, and spiked sounds like music to your ears right about now, I've got the recipe for you! I'm so excited to share these beyond easy magical Nutella fudgesicles with you because they taste just like those classic Fudgesicles from the ice cream truck, and all you need is 4 ingredients!
I'm all about easy recipes in the summer. Ones that are perfect for entertaining, require minimum to no oven time, and when they happen to involve Nutella - well, that's always a bonus! These pops come together in a snap and freeze beautifully thanks to the coconut milk.
You'll want to make sure you use a can of unsweetened coconut milk for this recipe, and in case you're wondering if you can taste the coconut, you can! People always ask that when coconut milk is involved so I wanted to put it all out there from the get go. They're not overwhelmingly coconut-y if you know what I mean, but you'll definitely get a vibe.
The coconut gets a little more prominent once you invite some rum to the party and I gotta tell ya, that little splash really takes these gems up a notch! You could also use Frangelico and then dip them in some toasted, chopped hazelnuts. Totally depends on your mood. To me, summer screams rum and coconut.
Once the pops were ready, I whipped up my super easy homemade magic shell. A quick dip in the nostalgic chocolate coating adds the crunch factor that takes them over the top. Then I dolled them up with toasted coconut and sprinkles!
You had to know that was coming!
Both toppings are great options, and the toasted coconut will have you feeling like you're on a fabulous tropical vacation. Sign me up!
I hope you guys love these! They’re exactly what this hot, sticky weather is calling for!

4 Ingredient Nutella Fudgesicles
Yield: 6 (3 ounce) popsicles
- 12 ounces unsweetened coconut milk
- 1/2 cup Nutella
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla bean paste or extract
- 1 Tbsp. rum (Frangelico would be nice too!)
- Pinch of salt
* When measuring out the coconut milk, use the thick part first and then add enough liquid to make 12 ounces. Discard remaining liquid or use in something else!
- Mix coconut milk, Nutella, vanilla, rum and salt in a blender on low speed (so you don't get air bubbles) until everything is combined. You could also use a food processor.
- Pour into 3 ounce dixie cups or popsicle molds and freeze for one hour.
- Remove from the freezer and insert popsicle sticks. Freeze overnight.
- If desired, dip pops into homemade magic shell.
Homemade Magic Shell
- 6 ounces (1 cup) chocolate - I prefer a good quality dark chocolate
- 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
- Melt chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler.
- Spoon over ice cream or transfer to a jar and store at room temperature until ready to use.
- If magic shell hardens up in the jar, pop it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds until it's fluid again.
