Homemade Fudge Popsee them here
There's a very vocal group of people who love summer. They seem to look forward to it all winter as they whine about having to put on extra layers of clothing. Their pictures suddenly multiply on facebook during the summer months bearing captions like "LOVE LIFE" and are all set on the beach, sunglasses on their faces. Or they claim it's the only time to travel.
I am not one of them. To me summer is like a succubus that drains me of any desire to be awake. Because if I'm awake I'm feeling the sweat drip off my skin despite doing nothing but lying in bed. My mosquito bites (all 100+ of them) are itching and the salt from my sweat is making them sting. Also, there is no possible way to relieve my temperature woes since I am already sleeping mostly naked, do not have a/c, and my fan only moves humid hot air around.
This summer seems to have lasted forever. Day after day of 30C (at least) of glaring bright sunlight, high humidity, and night after night of weak breezes as mosquitoes swarm my legs. Summer in Thessaloniki is about 5 months long and I am clearly not meant for it.
And it's even a 'cooler than usual' year.
So here's a way to beat the heat. Homemade popscicles.
you need: milk, sugar, cocoa, salt, chocolate
optional: caramel, espresso powder (for caramel mocha flavor!)
-Set sugar to dissolve in milk at low heat.
-Add in the cocoa, salt, and chocolate pieces.
-Whisk it strongly until all is blended and melted.
-Pour into your molds and freeze.
