Frozen Treat Week continues today with more popsicles on Rachel Cooks! Told you I’m obsessed. Another thing I’m obsessed with?

No, not popcorn.

Okay, yes…popcorn…but that’s not what I am talking about right now. We’re talking Andes Mints! I seriously love the things and could eat them by the truckload.

These pudding popsicles are full of minty goodness. And of course chocolate. Chocolate mint is a match made in heaven if you ask me, and then put it in popsicle form and everyone is a happy camper. I really filled these popsicles with mints and every bite is like biting into a really cold, really chocolately Andes.

They couldn’t be easier to make, either. Whip up some chocolate pudding, stir in the Andes, pour (spoon) into popsicle molds and freeze. Then the only thing left to do is eat!

Andes Mint Pudding Pops

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 3 hours, 5 minutes

Yield: 4 large popsicles, depending on size of mold

Serving Size: 1 popsicle

These Andes Mint Pudding Pops are jam-packed with Andes Mint goodness. The perfect summer treat.

Ingredients

  • one 3.9 ounce package of instant chocolate fudge pudding
  • 1 and 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 28 Andes Mints, roughly chopped (quartered)

Instructions

  1. Whisk milk and pudding mix for about 1 minute or until it begins to thicken. Stir in chopped Andes mints.
  2. Pour into popsicle molds, tap down to remove air pockets, and freeze until firm (at least 3 hours). Once frozen, remove from popsicle molds and enjoy immediately.

Verdict: Loved these! I loved letting them melt a little and eating them with a spoon, too. But I’m weird like that.
Husband’s take: Too many Andes for him (“It’s a little much.”) But I think he’s crazy.
Changes I would make: None.
Difficulty: Easy.

When I was growing up my grandparents always had Andes in the candy dish. These popsicles are making me feel nostalgic in the absolute best possible way right now :)

I think I need to make pudding pops next, I just got (tiny!) pop molds and I am aching for a fudgsicle. Also at a party someone randomly left Andes mints at my house!

These would be so fun in a mini version!

Rachel, I would be so tempted to just lick the bowl clean before freezing these bad boys! Nothing like mint and chocolate to make me swoon. My goal this summer is to make some frozen pops and this is going to the top of my list. Thanks for sharing!

Chocolate-mint is my all-time favorite flavor combination so these are right up my alley! I don’t keep Andes mints on hand because I have no self control, but I can’t wait to pick some up and make these!

Tell your husband he is crazy because there’s no such thing as too many Andes mints!! I cannot wait to try these. My hubby is going to be smitten, because he adores anything chocolate and mint (like more normal adults. :)

The cupcakes are adorable and I am sure yummy too! My daughter and 3 granddaughters 7, 5, and 1, are coming to live with me for the school year while their daddy goes to OTS and some other military training for 6 months in two different states before being assigned to a post. They love to bake with their grandma and these will be fun to do and eat. Can’t wait!
