Remember Jello Pudding Pops? Bill Cosby? Yes, I’m a child of the 80’s. I thought it would be fun to make some pudding pops at home in some really fun flavours. I served them at the end of summery dinner, as the perfect sweet ending.
I made them in the little 3 oz. paper dixie cups, which was the perfect size for sampling a few different flavours. 😉
My girls love s’mores, so that’s the first flavour I made. They seem to really love them.
S’more Pudding Pops
instant chocolate pudding + milk for preparing
small container of whipping cream
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup graham wafer crumbs
1 tbsp melted butter
1 tbsp sugar
1. Whip your cream, adding 1 tbsp of sugar and 1 tsp vanilla near the end.
2. In another bowl, make the chocolate pudding according to the package instructions.
3. Fold the whip cream into the chocolate pudding.
4. In another bowl, combine graham crackers with melted butter, and 1 tbsp of sugar.
5. To make the pudding pops, fill the bottom of a dixie cup with spoonful of the graham cracker mixture, top with a little of the pudding, then add marshmallows. Fill the rest with pudding. Makes about 12. Add a popsicle stick, and place in the freezer for at least 6 hours to set. To release the pudding pop from the dixie cup, run it under hot water for a few seconds.
Banana Pudding Pops
To make the banana pudding pops, follow the same directs as above, but use Banana Pudding instead of chocolate, and reserve a small amount of whipped cream to add to the top. Instead of a layer of marshmallows, add a slice of banana.
Chocolate Pudding Pops
Follow the directions for the S’more pudding pops, with chocolate pudding and whipped cream. Instead of adding the graham cracker mixture and marshmallows, just fill the whole dixie cup with plain chocolate pudding mixture.
I love how the popsicle stick labels tuned out. I just used a marker to write the different flavours on the sticks before I inserted them. And if you’re worried about the popsicle sticks standing up, the pudding mixture is so thick that they stay right where you put them.
With home made pudding pops on a warm summer evening, life really is a party!
