Okay, I have one more Poptail recipe for you before I move on to other things to drink and eat. 🙂 Black Russian Poptails!
I love White Russian cocktails. Kinda like grown-up chocolate milk. 🙂 And since we’ve established that I have the culinary palate of a 6-year old, this is right on-brand for me. 🙂
It’s getting extremely warm here, so the poptail recipes are a welcome addition to the dessert menu. This one is for a Black Russian Poptail.
A White Russian cocktail uses Kahlua, vodka, and heavy cream. This Black Russian poptail recipe uses Kahlua, chocolate fudge pudding mix, milk, and vodka. You could also make it a White Russian version by using a vanilla pudding mix.
The liquors in this boozy poptail are vodka and Kahlua, which is a coffee liqueur that contains rum, sugar, and coffee.
Don’t judge that giant vat of vodka. 🙂 I have to buy in bulk to keep stocked for my Bartesian cocktail machine.
I told you about this amazing machine last summer. It is basically a Keurig for liquor. Only good. 🙂 You pop in little pods and it knows which liquors to add to give you the perfect mixed cocktail.
To make this Black Russian Poptail, you simply mix the pudding mix with the milk. The recipe I used calls for sugar-free and fat-free chocolate pudding mix. I’m not sure why, but I didn’t want to deviate from the recipe.
This is where you would use vanilla pudding mix if you wanted to make the White Russian version.
Then you add the vodka and Kahlua. Whisk all the ingredients together until smooth. Pour into the popsicle mold. Freeze for at least eight hours.
I wondered if this would freeze properly since vodka doesn’t freeze and the alcohol content of Kahlua is pretty high, thus putting it in the range of liquors that don’t freeze.
It did take a while, but it did freeze up. I waited about an hour and a half after putting the mold in the freezer before I added the popsicle sticks.
To release the potails from the mold, simply run the mold under hot water for a few seconds. They slide out easily.
If you love fudgesicles and remember getting those from the ice cream truck when you were younger, you will love these. They are very fudgy, and also have a nice kick from the Kahlua and vodka.
So if summer has kicked into full gear where you live and you want to make some refreshing treats, give these Black Russian Poptails a try! They are delicious, boozy, and a great way to invigorate Happy Hour!
To make these Black Russian Poptails, just follow this simple recipe:
- Mix 1 1/2 ounces of fat-free and sugar-free instant chocolate pudding mix with 2 1/2 cups of milk
- Whisk until smooth
- Add 5 ounces of vodka
- Add 3 ounces of Kahlua
- Stir until blended, and pour into popsicle mold
- Freeze for at least 8 hours
