Once the cocoa mixture is hot and the sugar has melted, pour in the remaining milk with the softened gelatin. Whisk until smooth. Remove from the heat and whisk in the vanilla and salt. Pour the mixture into the popsicle molds and freeze for at least 5 hours. The pops will stay good frozen for up to two weeks.
To unmold the popsicles before serving, fill a pot with warm water. Dip the molds into the water, keeping the water just below the fill line of the molds. Hold the molds in the water for 15 seconds. Remove from the water and lift the pops out of their molds. If the pops do not unmold easily, place the molds back into the water for another 10 to 15 seconds, until the pops easily lift out.
Serving Size: Makes 8 popsicles

These popsicles were great, my children loved them and said they had extremely good flavor. I did reduce the sugar to 1/4 cup and no one noticed. :) - 7/10/14

So glad to hear that your children enjoyed these popsicles. I might have to try your adjusted version myself! :-)
