TGIF! It is almost time for a 3 day weekend! Yippee! That means some quality time with the hubby! And because it is Memorial Day we also get to see some great fireworks. I love me some fireworks. Any of you have grand plans for this holiday weekend??
Have you noticed that the past 2 weeks I’ve been on an ice cream/popsicle kick. I think it is the beautiful 70 and 80 degree days we’ve been having. That combined with all the work I’ve been doing outside, I’m loving me some popsicles! One of my all time favorite popsicles as a kid was Jello pudding pops. I love them. In effort to get back in touch with my inner child, I decided to venture to make these delicious Copycat Pudding Popsicles.
- 1 (3.9 oz) package instant pudding
- 2 cups milk
- 1 cup cool whip
- In a medium bowl, combine milk and pudding mix. Whisk until powder is dissolved. Stir in cool whip.
- Transfer mixture into a ziploc bag. Cut off one corner and pipe mixture into popsicle molds. Tap base of molds on the counter to release any air bubbles and settle the mixture. Insert stick.
- Freeze for at least 2 hours before eating.
Obviously, for my version, I used both chocolate and vanilla. So I just made up both batches like the recipe says and piped the pudding mixture in layers!
And because I know someone is going to ask… I got the popsicle mold from Ikea for super cheap. 😀
My first attempt to make copycat pudding popsicles, I tried straight Jello pudding in popsicle molds. Wasn’t quite right. Then I saw this awesome recipe. And knew I had found it as soon as I took my first bite into that glorious frozen treat.
I had tons of extra pudding since I made a double batch so I grabbed some dixie cups and leftover popsicle sticks and made some not as pretty but equally tasty pudding popsicles.
Do you remember pudding pops?? What was your favorite frozen treat as a kid?
