I loved pudding pops growing up. Seriously great memories of devouring the things growing up. Now, it is such a sad thing, they seem no where to be found. I looked online and found a recipe. Now here is the disclaimer. . . these are NOT the pudding pops of old. And I did not like them as well. However, they were a delightful little treat and my kids all loved them. They were finished, each and every one, which is kind of a miracle, because there is almost always one kid who doesn't like something and doesn't finish it. Anyway, this is hardly a recipe because it is so simple. It will take about 5 minutes to make it, and makes about 10 of these little pops. Not a replacement for the pudding pops of old, but will suffice.
- 3 oz. package of chocolate or vanilla pudding
- 1 1/2 cups milk (I used skim)
- 2 cups cool whip (I used lite)
Whisk together milk and pudding until slightly thickens. Fold in cool whip, until all the same color. (Cool whip helps it not to crystallize). Divide between popsicle holders (or use old individual yogurt containers, cover with saran wrap and stick a popsicle stick in the center). Freeze. To release, squeeze the outside of popsicle container and tug gently at stick to break suction and release.
