Mexican Chocolate Pudding Pops

The Mexican flavoring comes from the addition of cinnamon and orange liqueur. You may eliminate these ingredients or substitute a flavored extract for the liqueur. Either way, these make a terrific summer dessert.


2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder*
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 cups milk
3 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped fine*
1 tablespoon orange liqueur or 1-1/2 teaspoons almond or vanilla extract


Combine first five ingredients in medium saucepan. Place pan on medium- to medium-high heat; whisk in milk until smooth. Cook, stirring almost constantly, until mixture thickens, about 10 minutes. Cook 1 minute longer, then stir in chocolate and liqueur. Pour into molds; freeze 4 hours or overnight.
