These pops are uber-fudgy, thanks to a combo of chia seeds and cocoa powder. If you don't have the patience to wait for the frozen version[-no problem, the pudding is just as delicious.]

NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cups 2-percent milk
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons light agave nectar
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Directions
  • Special equipment: four 3- to 4-ounce ice pop molds

  • Combine the milk, chocolate, cocoa powder, agave and a pinch of salt in a medium saucepan and set over medium-low heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until the chocolate melts and the cocoa dissolves, 6 to 8 minutes. Pour the chocolate mixture into a medium bowl. Stir in the chia seeds and vanilla. Let cool to room temperature, about 1 hour.

  • Cover and refrigerate the mixture until chilled and the chia seeds are plumped, about 1 hour more, stirring halfway through.

  • Divide the mixture evenly among four 3- to 4-ounce ice pop molds. Freeze until solid, at least 8 hours and up to overnight. Let sit at room temperature for a few minutes before unmolding.

  • The pops will keep in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.
