Make homemade Vanilla Chocolate Pudding Pops with this easy recipe! A delicious summer treat perfect for kids of all ages!
Did I ever tell you about our summer foodie bucket list? Basically, the kids wrote down all of the recipes they want to try this summer, and these Easy Vanilla Chocolate Pudding Pops were pretty high up on the list. Most of the items just happen to be no-bake desserts or other frozen treats, but hey — that’s what’s fun about summertime!
We usually don’t do formal bucket lists, but the kids had so many different ideas that they wanted to try this summer that I sat them all down and asked them to put everything in writing. We used our handy dandy chalkboard pantry door for this list, and now we just cross things off as we make them.
I am not the most organized person on the planet, so this was a huge step for me! More frozen treats than crafts or activities made the summer bucket list this year, but we’re definitely having plenty of fun!
One of my girls absolutely loves pudding, and even though I’m not a big fan, I loved these frozen pudding pops as much as the kids did. Remember Jello pudding pops from back in the day?
Since I did not want to make anything on the stove, we took the easy way out and used instant pudding. I made both vanilla and chocolate so that there would be enough left over for the pudding queen to snack on.
Supplies Needed for Pudding Pops
- Instant pudding mix
- Wire whisk or electric mixer
- Ice pop molds
How to Make Jello Pudding Pops
This is a super easy way to make frozen pudding pops. The result is kind of like a creamy Popsicle, and it tastes like frozen Jello pudding. I have seen recipes that add Cool Whip for a creamier texture, but the kids and I like them this way.
Basically all you do is make Instant pudding. Because we wanted a vanilla chocolate combo, we made one batch of vanilla pudding and a bowl of chocolate pudding.
Next, you add some vanilla pudding to your ice pop mold. Then, you spoon chocolate pudding over that. You can reverse the order or swirl the flavors together if you want.
Insert the handles into the molds, and put the molds into the freezer. It takes about 4 hours for the pudding pops to set, and you can leave them in overnight if you want.
How to Easily Remove Pudding Pops from the Molds
I’ve found the easiest way to remove the frozen treats from the molds is to run a little warm water over the molds. Just be careful not to let any water get near the handles or it may run into the frozen pudding.
You can also use a sharp knife to carefully dislodge the frozen treats from the molds. If the handles come out while you’re trying to remove the pudding pops, you can always stick them back in.
