When I was younger, my favorite popsicle was the chocolate Jello Pudding Pop.
The popsicles were available in vanilla, chocolate and swirl flavors.
Since I haven’t seen them available for years, I thought I would try to make my own. Because, I seriously loved those popsicles!
I rummaged through my recipe books and even spent time searching online. I couldn’t really find a recipe that interested me.
I decided to put my pudding pop plans on hold and resume my search at a later date.
Later, I noticed one of my daughter’s pudding snack pack cups sitting on the counter. She loves it when I put puddings in her school lunch bag.
I was hesitant as I stared at the little chocolate pudding cup.
Could I really just put a popsicle stick in this pudding cup and freeze it? Would it turn out? Would it taste good?
I decided to give it a shot. I used a knife to cut a small slit in the top of the pudding cup. I then inserted the popsicle stick.
The pudding pops turned out great! They are so delicious and I am still amazed out how easy it was to create this decadent frozen treat.
Two things to note:
1. Use a knife to make a slit in the top of the pudding cup first, then add the popsicle stick. If you don’t use the knife, you risk making too big of a hole in the pudding cup top.
2. When you get ready to eat it, run the container under a little warm water to ensure easy popsicle removal.
