A gelato inspired by fudgsicles..

As a kid, I used to love Jello Pudding Pops. remember them? I have always thought it would be fun to recreate those, and this comes close.. I had some good homemade fudgsicles at a friends house last week. She shared the recipe with me and instead of creating the popsicle, I decided to take it in a different direction and spin it as a gelato. What I got was the most wonderfully textured and delish cold treat. I don't normally love to use corn syrup, but I do think that it lends its hand to the stretchy-like texture of this gelato.. I call it gelato, as it has no cream, just evaporated milk! I was going to add some cherries, but I got lazy. and wouldn't you know, I have no cherry pitter amongst my arsenal of baking tools.

Next time...

Fudgsicle Gelato.
This was adapted from somewhere, cant think of where at the moment.

3/4 c evaporated milk
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 cup water
3 Tabl brown sugar
1/2 c unsweetened cocoa
1/4 teas salt
1 teas vanilla
1 Tabl butter, unsalted

heat all ingredients but the vanilla and butter in over low heat to dissolve the sugar, cocoa and corn syrup. remove from heat and add the vanilla and butter. let cool at room temp. when cooled, add to ice cream maker and spin away....
