As a child of the 1980s, one of my favorite snacks was Jell-o Pudding Pops. The chocolate pudding pops were my after school go-to for snacking in the warmer months, and when challenged by #CollectiveBias to come up with an #AddCoolWhip treat, I decided to whip up some Jell-o pudding pops of my own to have on hand for my kids as quick and easy snacks. But you know me… plain chocolate just wouldn’t do.
These pudding pops are so easy, it’s ridiculous! And if you’re back to school routine is any where near as hectic as mine, you know why that’s so important. I’ve got two delicious recipes for you, but first thing first, you need to gather your supplies.
You can get everything you need (and any last minute back to school supplies) at your neighborhood Walmart. Plus, while supplies last, you can grab a $1 off coupon you can use to save on your Jell-o Pudding Mix and Cool Whip.
For S’mores Pudding Pops: Jell-o Chocolate Pudding Mix, Mini Marshmallows and crushed Graham Crackers
For Banana Pudding Pudding Pops: Jell-o Banana Cream Pudding Mix, Sliced Banana and crushed Vanilla Cookies
Prepare your pudding of choice based on package directions. After the pudding has chilled and is typical pudding consistency, you can start filling your molds. The molds are easiest to fill by using a plastic storage bag. Just spoon the pudding and Cool Whip into the bag, alternating a spoon full of each, and snip the corner of the bag. You can easily squeeze the pudding mix into the molds without making a mess.
Alternate layers of filling and add in ingredients in each mold until you’ve filled all six molds. Insert your popcicle sticks and pop your tasty treats in the freezer. In 4-5 hours, you’ll have some amazingly yummy treats, perfect for after-school (or anytime) snacking!
