Cool treats are part of summertime and nothing is cooler than a pudding pop! Unless, of course, it is a rainbow colored pudding pop! This little goodie is as attractive as it is delicious. Parents and children can make these pops at home with just a few ingredients. Follow this recipe for a summer treat that adults will love as much as their children do!
You will need:
• 1 or 2 boxes of instant vanilla pudding mix
• Different colors of food coloring
• Mixing spoon
• Large mixing bowl
• 5 or 6 small mixing bowls
• Paper or plastic cups
• Popsicle sticks
• Plastic wrap (optional)
Step 1: Pour the pudding mix into the largest mixing bowl.
Step 2: Refer to the pudding directions to determine how much milk to add to the bowl. Add the milk and whisk the pudding according to the package directions.
Step 3: Separate the liquid into 5 or 6 smaller mixing bowls.
Step 4: Add a different color of food coloring to each mixing bowl. Stir the pudding in each bowl, rinsing the spoon after each stirring, and add more food coloring to achieve the desired colors.
Step 5: Place the paper or plastic cups on a flat surface. Add a smooth, even layer of each color of pudding to each cup. The goal is to make the sides of each pudding pop look like a rainbow of colors.
Step 6: Insert a popsicle stick into the center of each cup. The thickness of the pudding should hold the stick in place. If it does not, cover each cup with the plastic wrap and put one stick through the wrap and then into the pudding.
Step 7: Freeze the pudding pops for several hours until they are set completely.
Step 8: Remove the pops from the freezer and warm the sides of each cup with your hands. Remove the pudding pop from each cup and enjoy.
