i came up with this when i decided that i wanted to make pudding pops for my students and my co-workers. i didn't have enough pudding or space for all the 'home made' freezey cups though, so i improvised.
depending on your ice tray, you end up with bonbon sized pudding pops.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather Items
ingredients. . .
- i just used powdered mix and
utensils. . .
- mixing bowl
- tooth picks
- ice cube trays
(i had some great trays. the bottom of each cup was silicone, so i could really push on each individual pop.)
- tin foil (not pictured)
Step 2: Make Pudding
for me, i combined the proper amount of milk and pudding mix.
follow directions on box (whisk for a couple of minutes)
Step 3: Fill Ice Trays
i just spooned the mixture into the ice cube cups.
if you want to be really precise, maybe use one of those frosting applicators.
for most of them i made each cube one flavor, but in the last batch i layered them together to get a fun marble mix.
Step 4: Wrap It Up
cover the trays in tin foil (to keep the nasties out)
Step 5: Add Pop Stick
you can probably get fancier with this, but i just used tooth picks.
make sure you get one in each cube.
(i made one set without tooth picks. not a good idea. the tooth pick allows the eater to savor the small pop.
without a tooth pick, the whole thing has to go into the eater's mouth. . . uncomfortably cold. also the tooth
pick makes for a decent and sanitary way to pick them up.)
Step 6: Freeze!
pop them in the freezer.
all of mine sat overnight. plenty of time.
Step 7: Pop 'em Out
let stand outside the freezer for a few minutes.
even the ones in the silicone ice trays needed some time to soften a little before i could easily remove them.
