Hi everyone! I’m Brandy from the food blog Nutmeg Nanny. I’m so excited to be guest posting for Rachel today.

Do you remember the Bill Cosby Pudding Pop commercials from the 1980’s? I used to love them. He talked me into loving pudding pops and pudding in general.

I sadly haven’t seen pudding pops in the store in a long, long time. I’m not sure if they do not sell them anymore or if they are just not available where I live. That’s when I decided that I had to make my own.

The best part is that you can make whatever flavor you want!  Instant pudding comes in a variety of flavors. The pudding pops pictured are made with seasonal release Jell-O “classic turtle”. It’s a blend of chocolate, caramel and pecan flavors. It makes an amazing pudding pop!

You’ll only need 2 simple ingredients to make pudding pops: Instant pudding and milk! How easy is that! Use whatever milk you happen to have. Whole milk or half and half make the creamiest pops. 

Popsicle molds are widely available, or you can use a small plastic cup with a wooden popsicle stick. Cover the top of the cups with foil, and insert the stick through the foil so that it stays upright until the mixture is frozen. Or skip the stick, and eat it with a spoon!
