1/3 cup (2 1/3 ounce) sugar
1 tablespoon (1/4 ounce) cornstarch
1 1/2 tablespoons (1/4 ounce) unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups whole milk
Pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 tablespoon (1/4 ounce) unsalted butter
In a medium the bottom of a medium saucepan over very low heat, gently melt the chocolate chips, stirring constantly until smooth.
Stir in sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder, milk and salt and raise heat to medium.
Cook mixture, stirring frequently until it thickens, anywhere between 5 minutes and 10.
Remove from heat, add vanilla and butter and stir until combined.
Set aside to cool slightly then pour into popsicle molds. Freeze. If you’re using regular popsicle sticks (instead of the lids), freeze the mixture in the molds for 30 minutes then add the sticks.
