Mint-Chocolate-Chip Fudge Pops

Roses are red.

Mint-chocolate fudge pops are green.

That doesn’t rhyme.

But really, who cares?

It’s too early for poetry anyway.

But not too early for fudge pops.

No, never.

Mint-Chocolate Fudgsicles

Just 5 ingredients…

with a secret healthy ingredient!

  • 1 cup plain or vanilla yogurt of choice, or 1 cup full-fat canned coconut milk (I used Silk soy yogurt, and Wholesoy works too. I’m sure many other brands work, but I’ve only tried these pops with the two brands mentioned.)
  • 1/16 to 1/4 tsp pure peppermint extract (or more), depending on desired mint strength
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1-3 stevia packets or 1-3 tbsp sugar or liquid sweetener of choice (Sweetener amount will depend on your choice of yogurt, as well as your personal taste preferences. Remember that the pops will be less sweet once frozen.)
  • scant 1/16 tsp salt
  • optional: packed 1/2 cup spinach (20g), or food coloring as desired (The pictured pops have spinach, not food coloring. You cannot taste it at all!)
  • optional: handful of chocolate chips or mini chips

If using spinach, blend all ingredients until completely smooth. (If not using spinach, combine all ingredients in a large bowl or pyrex measuring cup.) Pour into popsicle molds, or paper cups with spoons as the sticks. Freeze completely, then pop out and enjoy.

My chocolate chips all wanted desperately to sink to the bottom: To avoid this, you can fill the pops 1/2-way up first and freeze. Then fill the rest of the way. Or…

mint chocolate pops

I just gave up and covered them in chocolate!

The chocolate coating is this recipe: Hot Chocolate Butter.

Question of the Day:

What flavor popsicles should I make next?

There’s still half a big container of Silk yogurt in my fridge, begging to be used. At first, I was thinking pumpkin pie. But really, who wants to see pumpkin popsicles in the middle of June? So maybe chocolate-chip cookie dough? Or a fruit-based flavor… Strawberry Shortcake Popsicles? Or Piña Colada?

        I’m actually going to make hibiscus popsicles this year. I have alot of hibiscus syrup (most frozen but some in the fridge on hand) as well as the flowers so I plan on playing around with it lots this summer. Clara, you can put the flowers in but i would definately blend or chop them into small pieces…alot of people put them in champagne to make it pretty. You can also use it with pavlova and a lot of other nice light desserts 🙂

        CCK Some kind of cherry pie type popsicle would be amazing for the summer.

    • Hannah Mattil says

      Hibiscus actually sounds like a really cool idea to me, although I think a lot of people would be hesitant to try “flower” pops, hah!

      • Natalie says

        Rose and chamomile might be nice too 🙂
        (ever have some of those rosé-infused indian treats? they are divine)

  1. Anna says

    On Lottie + Doof, there is a fantastic (but not vegan!) recipe for vanilla bean, sour cream, cherry, tequilla popsicles. Seeing as you are of age, you should try making them! I’d love to see your take on that dessert.

  2. julia says

    pumpkin, please! I am on a crazy pumpkin kick and just made/devoured your single lady pumpkin chocolate chip muffin…. YUM!!! delicious, but I still need MORE PUMPKIN!!!

  3. Kimii G. says

    I love mint chocolate! (who doesn’t, honestly?)

    My favorite popsicle growing up was the orange creamsicles!
    A mocha flavored one would be awesome too

    • Clara says

      Actually for some reason Spaniards don’t seem to… None of my friends like the mint-choc combo, its MY favorite though! 🙂

    • Erin says

      I don’t, actually 🙁 it makes me sad – I WANT to like the combination (since so many people do) but it just doesn’t work for me.

  4. Josefine says

    These pop sicles look so nice. Deffinately a must try 🙂
    I think it would be SO nice if you made some with chocolate chips and cookie dough please. That would be great. Like Ben and Jerrys cookie dough, but healthier.

    Ps. I really live your blog 🙂

  5. Anonymous says

    Your recipes are all amazingly delicious. Is there any way in the body of each recipe you could note how much it yields (makes), as well as what size pan/etc you are using? It would be so helpful and convenient. Thank you for continued yumminess. Best of luck on your cookbook.

      • Sarah says

        Hi, Thank you so much for taking the time to respond! I did note that in this recipe; I was actually referring to a big percentage of the rest of your recipes – even after clicking on the “nutritional info” link, it often doesn’t discuss how much the recipe actually yields in total. Also, it would be so helpful to have the info (yield amount and pan size) right in the body of each recipe – ie right under the name/title, or at the very end. Thank you, again. All the best.

        • Kristall says

          I second this. I find your recipes to be fantastic and informative but lacking in the more traditional (yet essential) aspects. There are a few recipes I’ve used that list the ingredients as a jumble when compared with the directions. Cookbooks and most cookery blogs always list the ingredients in the order they are to be used. This is just meant as constructive criticsm as I know the very nature of the internet tends to make my words look angry and insulting.

  6. Rachel Harding says

    MAybe raspberry mint, or mango peach – thats very summery – or something with kiwi, or passionfruit, I LOVE passionfruit!

  7. mamak says

    Well I always make Green-a Colada. Pina Colada + spinach of course. 🙂 Kids love them too.
    I’d love a low-sugar coconut cream popscicle. I love those coconut bars you can get at the store but they have too much sugar for me right now.

  8. Caitlin says

    Mmm. I REALLY need to go invest in a set of popsicle molds!

    My vote is for the cookie dough, a nice french vanilla (or even coffee/espresso/mocha!), or strawberries and cream!

  9. Rebekah says

    I vote for strawberry shortcake!!

    Using spinach for the food coloring is genius. Somehow, mint ice cream just tastes better when it’s green.

  10. Rebekah says

    Using spinach as food coloring is genius – mint ice cream tastes better when it’s green!! As for the next flavor, I vote strawberry shortcake.

  11. Charlotte says

    Yum! I’m going to have to dig out my popsicle mold. I think chocolate chip cookie dough sounds AMAZING.

  12. Jessica says

    Thanks for this! This looks awesome! I don’t have any mint extract, but I have a lot of fresh mint on hand. I’ve never used mint extract before. Do you think I will be able to get the same taste if I use actual mint? Thanks!!
    Also, for what flavor pop next, can you do a vegan Dove bar? =)

  13. Clara says

    Chocolate chip cookie dough and piña colada sound amazing! I also thought of strawberry cheesecake, cake batter (with sprinkles of course!) and PB&J though i don’t know how id do the last one… 🙂 post the recipe of whatever you do please!

    • Anon says

      ohh cake batter ones would be super easy to make…just make the awesome cake batter shake on here and freeze into Popsicle molds 🙂 I do that with a bunch of smoothies in the summer time.

  14. vogelstar says

    watermelon!!! 🙂
    and/or strawberry yogurt pops, tangy and sweet.
    ps another cookie pie is in the oven. Yes I’m baking at 11 am. This really is a great, easy dessert.

  15. Jessica says

    I’d vouch for mango right off, just because it’s so rich. Or matcha. Or butterscotch. There’s too many flavors, go crazy!

  16. Kayla says

    My very ordinary Popsicle ideas:
    -Something with Peaches
    -Blueberry something or other
    -Red Velvet
    – Mango
    -Chocolate Coconut
    -Cake batter
    -Peanut butter
    -Chocolate Peanut butter
    -Spice Cookie
    -Dragon fruit!

  17. Jules says

    strawberries and cream!!!! that would be delicious!!! or pineapple, or the cookie doughsound awesome, or cookies and cream, or dark chocolate raspberry, strawberry banana! ahh too many flavor ideas!

  18. Theresa says

    You are phenomenal. Making all of your recipes is on my bucketlist, as of right now.
    I am begging you to make a coffee-flavored popsicle. BEGGING ON MY KNEES! 😉

  19. Stephanie says

    Spinach! I LOVE IT! You are such a hit in our house, Katie Doll! My girls sort of idolize you! Did you know you’re a role model for the “healthy-eating-tween” set? Thanks for all your hard work! My family benefits from you!

  20. Samantha says

    I am on such a mint chocolate chip kick I can’t wait to try again. I am loving all the cookie related requests!

    PS…link of the day is a great idea! Not sure if you are trying it out or it will be a new feature. I haven’t had time to make those cupcakes (on the list) so finally I did the single lady chocolate + extract + chocolate chips to get me through (and to eat with the ice cream).

    • Samantha says

      By the way, thanks for the mention of the popsicle mold. I love hearing about the companies out there doing good. I went to their site and that was a really touching story.

    • Alanna says

      I bet it would — I’ve used Chobani plain to make frozen yogurt before! I’ve never had vegan yogurt so I’m not sure how it compares flavor-wise, but you can always sample and add more sweetener before freezing if necessary.

  21. Alanna says

    These sound so yummy and easy! I love the idea of a peach, orange cream, or black raspberry flavor. As a side note, I can’t figure out how you got the one popsicle to stand up for the last two pictures! Haha.

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      I actually put a cup behind it and then photoshopped the cup out! It was hard to photoshop out, but it was certainly easier than getting the pop to stand up on its own.

      P.S. Going to Whole Foods today for your nut butters! 😉

      • Alanna says

        lol too funny; I thought maybe you’d carefully propped it up with another popsicle stick, but Photoshopping was probably easier! And yay on the nut butters! 😀

  22. mandy says

    Interesting recipe, to say the least. Bet it would be better w/ a banana blended in! But that might be too sweet? Not sure- You’re the master mind!!! What do you think?!

  23. Brin says

    You are soo talented! I’m 12 and a big fan! these would be awesome in ice cube tray with tooth picks for mini pops!!!( I have made over a dozen of your recipes or will;) and I haven’t found one I did not like)!!!!

  24. emily ran says

    Do a peach basil pop or raspberry rosemary. I love fruit mixed with savory herbs and it will look so pretty!

  25. Emily S says

    No, no! Please DO make pumpkin popsicles! I love pumpkin-flavored anything and I love pumpkin ce cream especially… so a popsicle would be fantastic! Other flavor ideas than pumpkin: blueberry bliss (I’m making up names), caramel mocha, devil’s food cake, bananarama, cookies ‘n cream, mango tango, gimme s’mores, iced cinnamon roll, and that’s all I’ve got for now. 🙂

  26. Amy says

    Mocha, caramel, or chocolate covered banana.
    Sorry, multiple suggestions probably not the most helpful but I can’t decide!

  27. Alison says

    Hey, Katie!

    This isn’t about the pops (although they look great). I just had these new kind of Lara bar called an Uber bar. I tried the Bananas Foster flavor and it was amaaaaazing. And literally the first thing I thought was… I wonder if CCK can figure out how to make these! So, if you are free to take a request for a new flavor of homemade Larabar, I’d love to try to make something similar!


    • Jenny$1983 says

      I’d like some help with that too! The fudge pops are in the freezer right now, and I have some Chocolate Butter already, but I’m not quite sure how to go about the chocolate covered part 😀

  28. Sophie says

    I think cookie dough or some sort of fruit thing sounds yummy. Unfortunately, I can’t make anything because I don’t have a popsicle mold. I really need to get one. Are there any brands/types that you would reccommend?

  29. Virginie says

    Without hesitation, my answer will be: cookie dough ! Or… if you’re able to create some kind of popsicle tasting something like oatmeal cookies…

    Actually, I juste love all cookies, if you can turn them into popsicle, I’ll have to try them for sure !

  30. Amanda says

    Pina Colada popsicles would be a very refreshing summer treat. Or the orange/vanilla option that another commenter suggested.

  31. JennT says

    I cannot wait to try this!

    As for the next one, I vote fruit! Orange-Vanilla sounds really tasty, as does the Strawberry Shortcake or Watermelon cream. mmmm… Popsicles….

  32. Sally says

    Must try this!

    I think that raspberry-lime popsicles should be your next flavor. Layered to make them look pretty, of course. 🙂

  33. Danielle says

    I would love to see the chocolate chip ones, and the strawberry shortcake…ooh, and maybe grape too, please and thank you!

  34. Anna @ The Guiltless Life says

    Delicious..! Have you made peanut butter fudgsicles yet? I wasn’t sure…I know you’ve made regular chocolate and these mint ones – I love how GREEN they are! You gotta bring these back in next year’s St Paddy’s Day round-up haha.

  35. LizAshlee says

    Oh, orange vanilla does sound amazing to me too! I have fudgecicle holders that are oblong shaped, they should work for this recipe, right?

  36. lyss says

    Yum! LOVE the natural green color! I’ve been on a kick with using kale in smoothies. I just finished a shake with frozen bananas, peanut butter, cocoa powder, with a splash of milk and a handful of kale. Totally could not taste the kale. Hmmm…come to think of it, that would also be good as a popsicle. Guess I’ll have to make more…. 🙂

  37. Amber with Slim Pickin's Kitchen says

    These look sooo precious and scrumptious! But…how on earth did you get it to stand up like that?!? Too cute 🙂

  38. Sunnie says

    Actually, I think that pumpkin popsicles are a really good idea – even in June! Because honestly, who wants a popsicle – pumpkin or not – in chilly October? Well, maybe some people (who live in a warmer climate than me! 😉 ) . . .

    I’m game for any popsicle flavor, from any time of the year (pumpkin for fall, gingerbread or eggnog for winter . . . ooh, imagine a chilly EGGNOG flavored pop! Maybe I should try to make that . . .).

  39. Veronica says

    Katie! You MUST do chocolate chip-cookie-dough popsicles! Cookie dough is my FAVORITE dessert and to have it in a popsicle form would be amazing!! I would love you forever! 😀

  40. Elizabeth says

    I’ve been scouring the Internet for some more grown-up flavored popsicles. I don’t drink, so I’m not meaning alcoholic ones. I mean more like ones ingredients like green tea, fresh mint, ginger, papaya, kiwi, honey … The “outside-the-box” flavors.

    Some healthy pudding pops would be nice. I made the kids some from Jell-o pudding mix. Later I got to thinking about all the sugar and wondering what the gelatin was derived from. Eating cow and horse bones doesn’t sound tasty.

  41. Kat Creamer says

    Just made these for myself this afternoon. Had one after dinner. I didn’t think to chop the spinach first. I could have blended it longer too. Other than that, they were fab! Which simply means operator error ; ) Thinking that I may just freeze it in a small tupperware container next time though. I could not get them out of my sons icepop mold! I sat there with a spoon just scraping it out. Lol
    Thanks, as always, for the yummy and healthy food! You are making my transition so much easier. Milk allergy is not fun, at all.

  42. Cris says

    I’m excited to try this. Ive tried a few of your other recipes that I’ve found on interest and they have all been great! I appreciate your healthy and delicious recipes. Keep up the good work!

  43. Emily says

    So…I have pinned so many of your recipes and haven’t tried any – until now. I was just really skeptical that something good for you could be healthy, too, since I love baking with “real” ingredients. Also, I don’t always have the ingredients for all of your recipes (which I’m going to have to remedy).

    I saw this in a “You might also like…” and I am so glad you add that to the end of blog posts b/c mint and chocolate are my favorites, hands down. I made these pops tonight with the hot chocolate butter sauce magic shell amazingness…holy cow. I’m only sorry I haven’t tried some of your recipes sooner!

    Keep up the chocolatey work! 😉


  44. Sabrina says


    Did you cover the Popsicles with the chocolate sauce after they were frozen? For some reason I’m having trouble visualizing how you did it.


  45. Lilly says

    Just made these, with fresh mint and no chocolate (sorry!) instead and they turned out so good! I think some type of layered pops would be super cute, like peaches and cream layering the orange peach part, then the creamy part, then another layer of peach… or red white and blue for July 4th, like those “rocket” pops 🙂 Thanks for the great inspiration as always!

  46. jen says

    3 cheers for spinach!!!
    I think you should do a fruit that is really in season right now – like peach… peach cobler?

  47. Gemma says

    Katie these fudge pops are AMAZING! Mint-choc chip ice cream is my favourite so I just had to make these. They were so delicious, and so quick to make. I’ve just made a second batch as I got through the first one so quickly. It’s such a good idea to add in spinach too. These taste just like the real thing, its hard to believe they’re health for you! Thank you for posting this recipe it’s one of my new favourite desert recopies!

  48. Anonymous says

    have you ever tried a chocolate banana starbucks smoothie? its sooooo good!!!! id love it if you made a reicipie 🙂 its not that theyre horribly unhealthy, theres a whole banana and 180 calories but i really wanna make one at home that taste just like it! id love it if you would make a recipie 😀

  49. Greg says

    Has anyone here used the caffeine free cocoa powder sold as Wondercocoa from Wonderslim? Its roasted cocoa powder but 99.7% caffeine free. I’m curious about taste and quality. Sometimes I’m in a chocolate mood but dont want the extra caffeine jolt!

  50. Christin says

    I love your website and loved your chocolate chip cookie dough dip. I wish I was a neighbor, so I could be a taste tester. 🙂 I will be buying your cookbook the second it comes out. I want to make so many of your recipies, there isn’t enough time.

  51. Bri says

    I am not sure if you’ll get this, but silk soy yogurt isn’t vegan. They use milk for active cultures. I called and asked bc it’s not really clear.

  52. SGM says

    I wanted to tell you of a variation of this I made. So, instead of making them into pops, I made it into ice cream, using spinach and coconut cream (Trader Joe’s has it but it’s been out of stock whenever I went, so I get it from Sprouts, although theirs isn’t quite as good as TJ’s).
    Instead of adding chocolate chips, I make your amazing chocolate shell/coating sauce and drizzle that into the ice cream mixture as its being churned (at least 5 minutes into its churning). That way, it hardens into small chocolate pieces that are soft (I hate hard chocolate pieces in my ice cream). YUM! I do this with your cherry Garcia recipe also. 🙂
