DIY Pudding Pops

Summer is a great time to relax and enjoy some simple pleasures, like these pudding popsicles. They are creamy and rich but small enough that they make a great after lunch treat, afternoon snack, or they can satisfy a chocolate or caramel craving for mom! They are simple enough that an older child could help or even make them by themselves.

Homemade Pudding Popsicles

  • 1 batch of pudding (homemade works great!)
  • Popsicle molds or cups and popsicle sticks (or even sturdy straws will work)
  • Baking pans or cookie sheets (This makes transporting them to the freezer easier.)
  1. Make the pudding (see other posts for instructions), and allow it to chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
  2. Spoon the pudding into popsicle molds or cups. (I usually make each popsicle about 1/4 cup (or 2 oz.), but you can make them any size you like. This way I can get about 8 pudding popsicles from one full batch of pudding.) Put the cups or molds on a pan or cookie sheet. If using molds, you can insert the sticks now.
  3. If using cups, place in the freezer for an hour or two to allow them to freeze part way, and then insert the sticks. They will stand up much straighter than if you are impatient or in a hurry (like I am sometimes) and stick them in too soon.
  4. Return to the freezer for a few more hours to freeze solid.
  5. Running the cups or molds under warm water for a couple of minutes  makes it easier to get them out.
  6. Enjoy!
