Nutella Fudge Pops

Oh fudge!

Can be soy-free / sugar-free / dairy-free / vegan. Recipe--->

Melty Nutella Fudge Pops.

Yesterday, I took care of the Fairy Dust Sisters.

Now, whenever I watch the girls, they make me call them by their fairy princess names. And the first thing they always ask is, “What are we making today??”

Since it was so warm outside, and since little kids seem to adore Nutella (Wait, everyone adores Nutella, right?), I asked if they’d be interested in making Nutella fudgsicles. Obviously the girls fairy princesses welcomed this idea.

Nutella Fudge Pops

Nutella Fudge Pops

(Makes 6-7)

  • 3 frozen bananas
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1/2c choc-hazelnut butter or Homemade Healthy Nutella
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • tiny pinch salt

Blend all ingredients until super-smooth. (We used a food processor, and we thawed the bananas a tiny bit so they’d blend.) Eat as ice cream, or scoop into popsicle molds (or paper cups) and freeze for fudgsicles.

    These look great! Can’t wait to try them!

    Yep– Pinterest board here too. Addicting, but I love having all my recipes in one spot.

  2. Emma the Hungry Hippie says

    Uh oh.
    This could be dangerous!
    I am going to go back right now and pin ALL my favorite CCK recipes!!! 🙂
    This way, until you get that cookbook of yours published, at least I’ll have my own little virtual CCK cookbook!

    *Runs off to pin all the CCK recipes that are a staple in my house!* 🙂

  3. Sarah the official CCK drooler-we pick Rick says

    The weather here has been climbing steadily- so these are perfect to compliment the lovely weather!
    question: my sister can’t have any dairy or nut/wheat products. Is there some way i could leave out the nutella or do you have another flavor option in mind? thanks!

  4. Lisa Braodley says

    I think I’m loving Pinterest now! I use One tsp. for cataloging my recipes but with Pinterest I can put them there and they won’t get lost! I was pinning a couple over the weekend and the name of the recipe wouldn’t show up…now it does!!

    • Karen says

      I have had issues with pinterest pins not showing up in the past, too. I think it’s cuz it’s such a new media, and they probably had no idea it would be so popular so fast!

  5. Suzie says

    I simply have fallen in love with bananas! They are so versitile and great natural sweetner, amazing! And yes I have a pinterest… and well it can be bad news as I spend some too many minutes, okay maybe hours– but nonetheless I have found some great ideas, recipes, etc. Its a great resource. Thanks for the delicious recipe, sure is perfect timing for this nice weather I am having 🙂

  6. HollieisFueledByLOLZ says

    I also get super sucked in to pinning things. Not so much recipes but the humor really gets to me most of the time ha. Anyways-it’s so cold up here in upstate-I cannot imagine anything frozen but in the summer these sound amazing!

  7. Char @ says

    Ohh nutella pops! Katie, you’re amazing. It’s still pretty chilly here some days, but as soon as it warms up, I’m definitely making these!

    And yep, I have a Pinterest account! I only ever use it to “bookmark” recipes I come across, though. I’d rather waste my time doing other things than “planning” a future vacation, wedding, or looking at $1,000 outfits. Also, there are too many delicious foods “pinned” there, and I’m afraid I’ll never leave my kitchen if I really get sucked in 😉

  8. Sara Dane says

    These are perfect to bring to the pool for my friends…it’s already pool season here in Houston and I love sneaking in vegan treats at our crazy pool parties and BBQs!

    Love your blog Katie and I will be adding tons of your pages once I get signed up on Pininterest.

  9. Bianca- Vegan Crunk says

    YES!!!!!!!! I LOVE Nutella! And I LOVE fudge pops!! Pinning these.

    On Pinterest, I’m not sure how I lived before it. It’s where I store all my ideas and must-make recipes. Before, I printed everything out and my world was filled with clutter. Now, no more clutter!

  10. Heather@Kids in the Sink says

    I have found so many great things on pinterest! Right when I thought my bookmarks were getting uncontrollable, I found pinterest. These look so good by the way. I did not make enou Popsicles last summer and now that my son can appreciate them more, I’m trying to find some inspiration.

  11. Raquel @ Ovenmitts Vegan Blog says

    I love pinterest… if I see anything on the internet that I want to come back to, I just pin it so I can find it easily later! Just like these fudge pops… have a great Monday!

  12. LizAshlee says

    Y-U-M These look delicious! I love Pinterest but haven’t gotten my page up and running yet! Hopefully soon!! Happy Week!

  13. Moni Meals says

    I have got to make these! YUM, and Nutella… yes, yes, and YES!
    I am not considered that it is breakfast time too and I am this excited. 🙂

  14. Laura says

    These were delicious! My 6 year old asked for a second one, and picked this over Oreos, so I KNOW it is a good recipe! 😉

  15. Emily @ Glitz Glam Granola says

    Omigosh these look fantastic! And perfect for those nights when you’re craving a frozen treat but have nothing on hand! YUM! I am totally addicted to Pinterest and am constantly pinning healthy recipes and not-so-healthy recipes for fun party food. It’s so much fun, you should def join!

    • Karen says

      Mmm yes, I have a “dream food” board too, with all the decadent things, like double brownies stuffed with cookie dough and topped with hot fudge!
      But Katie, sometimes some of your recipes are so decadent that even the healthy ones end up on my decadent board LOL! Like your brownie pancakes! Decadent and healthy. Best of both words!

  16. Amber K says

    I just posted today about my Pinterest obsession! So many good recipes on there that I’ll never live long enough to make them all. Well, I could certainly try 😉

  17. JennyBakes says

    My most popular pin was one of your recipes, actually, for chocolate frosting shots. After a troll war debating whether cows milk was healthy and being accused of being on a soapbox for posting a vegan recipe, I had to delete that pin. I’m tempted to delete the entire account because there aren’t enough options for blocking troublemakers and spammers like there are in blogs. Fair warning, and I certainly hope you don’t find troublemakers the way I did. I definitely was just trying to share a recipe I loved!

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      LOL! Oh dear… I am so sorry you had to deal with that! Yeah, I get trolls too. Usually I just get the “I bought a gucci bag” trolls on Pinterest. Ugh.
      But every now and then I get someone yelling at me for goodness knows what!

  18. Melissa says

    I can hardly wait to try these! My kids are pretty excited, too. I’ve been planning a trip to Whole Foods for a couple of weeks, now I have to go tomorrow and get hazelnuts to make my own nutella. Katie you are totally awesome!
    I love the idea of pinning all your recipes, then I can go straight to them! Yea!!

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Wow, I love it! The chocolate diet, huh? Yup, that pretty much describes my diet. People are always amazed that you can eat lots of chocolate and still be at a healthy weight. But it’s true! I think I’ve had it 3 times today… and that doesn’t count taste-testing blog recipes ;).

  19. Lisa Marie says

    I don’t think I’ve ever wanted anything as badly as I want one of these right now. YUM! And so few ingredients too! LOVE it!

  20. Tash (Dairy Free Chick) says

    These look delicious! I would put nutella swirls on them and refreeze for a chocolatey drizzle fudgesicle.

  21. Katie @ Nutrition in a Peanut Shell says

    They’re so cute! They look great 🙂
    Question: Do you shoot on a wood board or on like a table top? I love the look of it!

  22. Caitlin says

    We saw a recipe for peanut butter eggs (like Reeses but egg shaped… ). Since the holiday Reeses are always way better, I think the ratio in holiday shapes just works better than the cups… we made our own. They were pretty awesome. Since we had bought candy molds, and also live in Kentucky, we decided to make our own Bourbon Creams also…. anyone who has not had these, they are amazing! If you could figure out a way to healthify and veganize bourbon creams… man oh man! 🙂

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      I’ve never ad a bourbon crean egg! Now I’m curious… I’ll have to google it. As for the Reeses ones, I was actually thinking about doing them for an Easter post. We were on the same wavelength this week. 🙂

  23. AppleKim says

    You mention your Magic Bullet a lot on this page. What other blenders do you have? I am researching the Magic Bullet, Ninja, Blendtec and Vitamix. Do you have more than one? Do you use them for different things?

    I also have a pinterest account. That is how I found you!

  24. Steph @ StephSnacks says

    I do have several pinterest boards! I love them. Primarily I love them for new fitness routines but the Beauty/Hair section is inspiring as well as the recipes… I hardly have the time or even enough $$ to make everything I want, but I love the idea of a virtual mood board. It’s nice to go back and see what I Pinned.

  25. Leah says

    I love these! Frozen bananas never cease to amaze me. I actually have a bunch in my freezer right now and have been thinking about combining them with Nutella!

  26. Amy says

    All aunties and pseudo-aunties of precious girls MUST have tiaras for such an occasion and MUST place them on their blog– just sayin … 🙂 Pintrest is like crack, yo!

  27. Kelly says

    I really want to make these but I am not a fan of banana. Can I still make them without the banana? Or is there something else I can add to them instead of the banana.

  28. Strawberry Mama says

    I just ate one. Mmmmmmmmm. I used coconut cream in place of banana. It had a distinct coconut flavor, but it was so super rich and creamy. Coconut milk would have been less overwhelming.
    I have one kid who doesn’t like chocolate, nutella, or coconut (who is this kid?). I don’t think he will like these. But when I do this again, I think I might try it with almond milk and baby applesauce in place of the coconut milk.

  29. Anna says

    Hi Katie,
    I really enjoy your blog! Quick question – do you freeze the bananas in their shell or peeled?

  30. Sarah says

    This is the first recipe of yours that I have made and it is AMAZING. You are going to get me into some trouble…

  31. Aurélie says

    Well, I did this receipe with non-frozen bananas. Thankfully I had not enough moulds so I had to eat what was remaining ;-)) And it was so amazingly delicious !!!!! Incredible ! The next day I ate the pops and they were delicious. However I must say I prefered them non frozen ! I can not resist this tatste. It is simply just the right combination. Thank you !

  32. Becky says

    I just made these for my girls and I. I didn’t freeze them to pops, we just at it as ice cream. It was sooooo yummy! I used a blender and had to put a tiny bit of milk in it to help it blend. It’s so easy too. I need to make sure I have frozen bananas on hand at all times!

  33. Connie says

    I’ve just recently discovered Nutella (I know, I’m a late bloomer!). I love the idea of banana and Nutella on a stick – yum! But more importantly, I’ve missed fudge pops since I stopped eating processed foods so this will be fabulous – thank you so much!

  34. angie says

    Could one use Tofu insted of Bananas? Might have to try it. I have someone in the family who can’t eat Bababas

  35. Nadia Marie says

    OMG Katie! I just found this link on VegNews and am dying to try your recipe out! I also want to make your homemade nutella recipe. I have loved the stuff since I was a little girl! Much like you, I had many friends who did not even know it existed. Having lived abroad in Venezuela for several years had its advantages when it came to coming in contact with foods from other places. I also do have a Pinterest account with 252 followers so far. I have a TON of boards if you ever want to check it out! My pinterest handle is venenadia29 and the magazine I co-own has one too! It’s my365mag, our handle is. Love this blog! Definitely adding it to my bookmarks bar! xoxo

  36. Kerie says

    Nutella pops?!!!! You have won me over! Nutella barely makes it in door before the jar is empty…ok, maybe I shouldn’t open the jar on the way home from the store. 🙂
    Has anyone tried making these without the banana? We have banana allergy issues here.

  37. Mary says

    nom nom. I made these and they were great. I just put this in old chobani cups and popped em in a freezer bag and ate it out of the cup with a spoon, no sticks needed.

  38. Rachel L says

    Hi Katie! I just made your fudgepops and they are absolutely to die for! Instead of using a paper cup though, I used my plastic ice-pop molds, and I was disappointed when they did not come out from the plastic covers in-tact—only the stick emerged. I froze them overnight, so I don’t think freezing time was the issue.
    Do you have any suggestions on how to remove the fudge pops from ice-pop molds intact? I’ve made water-based ice pops before and didn’t have this problem, so it might just be that the solid banana/nut butter didn’t freeze as tightly as water does. Let me know if you have any suggestions!

  39. Karen says

    I am breastfeeding and I’m on a dairy free diet. I just made these with Nutella and they are delicious! Next I am going to try the homemade nutella linked from the recipe. Yumm!

  40. olivia says

    this is such a great idea! their freezing right now! i found your website on pintrest when i was looking for things to cook for my brother. he loves nutella so im made these. so exited to try! ! ! !

  41. Amanda Retotar says


    I’m a photo editor for Skye, AOL’s weather and lifestyle website. We are putting together a gallery about summer popsicle recipes, and would love to include a photo and the recipe for your Nutella fudge pops:

    We will be happy to credit you for the recipe and the photo as you see fit, and link back to your blog. Please let me know if we may include this in our gallery. If you have other popsicle recipes and photos you would like to share, please let me know about those as well. Thank you so much!



    PS- Looks delicious!

  42. del says

    Just a quick question. I know nuts are good for youand I can accept sugar in moderation but doesn’t Nutella have transfats? Recipe looks great though. Perhaps another brnad pf choc hazelnut spread?

  43. del says

    Just a quick question. I know nuts are good for youand I can accept sugar in moderation but doesn’t Nutella have transfats? Recipe looks great though. Perhaps another brnad pf choc hazelnut spread? I have made them by jsut mixing the choc pread and peanut with banana. Yum

  44. Anna McGrew says

    These are amazing! I have made them several times now, mostly for my boyfriend 🙂

    I do have a warning thou- do not use Popsicle molds! They don’t firm up enough to come out of the molds :(. I’m thawing them now then going to re-freeze them into paper cups.

  45. Kırmadan Su Kaçağı Tespiti says

    Oh Katie these look fabolous!! I love this recipe! I am going to rush home from work and stock my freezer with fudge pops. What a great way to start out the week!!
