An easy way to make fudge pops that kids will love. I've put the original recipe in, but feel free to use sugar free pudding or Splenda in place of the regular pudding and sugar.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the ingredients.
- Pour mixture into small plastic cups, or ice molds if you have them, and place in the freezer.
- When set (but not completely frozen- you need to check about 5-10 minutes once they have been in the freezer), place a wooden craft spoon into them.
- Serve when frozen.
This was well recieved by all. All I had on hand was vanilla pudding, and they turned out great. Now I need to try chocolate, and always have pudding on hand. Instead of getting out the mixer (kitchen Aid) and having to clean up, I mixed it in a 1Litre mason jar. The kids had fun shaking and minimal clean up for me. Made 14 tupperware Ice tups. Mix sugar and pudding first then add milk. Wonderfull.
I've made these before and heard a wonderful hint from another source: If you're using dixie cups, place them on a tray/plate/etc. after they're filled. Cover the cups snugly with a sheet of Saran wrap (or equivalent brand). Use a sharp knife to start a small hole above each cup, then poke the popsicle sticks through the holes. The Saran wrap will help keep the sticks upright, and you don't have to worry about forgetting to put the sticks in at the right time and winding up with a bunch of little cups of stickless pudding pops! Been there, done that! :D
My mom made these growing up. She used milk replacer cups (like small tupperwear cups), if you have no idea what I'm talking about you don't need to worry about it. Anyhow, for the best flavor for adults just freeze about 1/2 way....mmmm. I got cravings for that on baby #1. My kids love them frozen (outside is my only request).
