Cakespy: Homemade Pudding Pops
Jessie Oleson (aka Cakespy) drops by every Monday to share a delicious dessert recipe. —The Mgmt.
Growing up in the 1980s, I was pretty sure what made Jell-O Pudding Pops so delicious: every batch had been lovingly made by Bill Cosby, naturally.
Now that I'm older and (arguably) wiser, I know that the secret behind that singular texture and flavor isn't Bill's secret family recipe. But what I didn't know was that these sweet summertime treats are, seriously, the easiest thing ever to make.
Even better? At-home varieties also offer the freedom to showcase less-celebrated pudding flavors (butterscotch or rice pudding pop, anyone?), or to create your own new flavor by making two-tone pops in complementary flavors. I had great success with the chocolate-pistachio combination shown above.
