Test Kitchen Tip
If you’re torn between using Bailey’s Irish Cream or Kahlúa in these popsicles, you can use both by using 2 Tbsp. of each liqueur.
For the fudgesicles, melt chocolate in a saucepan over low heat. Whisk in half-and-half, sugar, cornstarch, cocoa powder, and salt; increase heat to medium and cook until thickened, 10 minutes.
Off heat, stir in Bailey’s and vanilla; divide among six 3-oz. popsicle molds. Secure popsicle sticks according to manufacturer’s instructions, and freeze until firm, at least 4 hours.
For the chocolate shell, melt chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Unmold popsicles, then drizzle with chocolate shell, sprinkle with cookie crumbs, and freeze until chocolate sets, 5 minutes more.
