Homemade Pudding Pop Recipe

How to make pudding pops! Super easy, creamy and delicious pudding pop recipe.

The nostalgic Jell-O pudding pop, if you were growing up in the 1990's you're sure to remember this creamy frozen treat. If you've never had a pudding pop you're missing out with this flavorful, creamy, and chocolaty dessert.

Pudding pops are inexpensive and super easy to make. With so many instant pudding flavor options you can switch up the flavor of this fun and delicious frozen treat. I layered vanilla and chocolate pudding, but you can certainly use one flavor or any flavor you like. Try adding crushed Oreo cookies to vanilla pudding for cookies and cream pudding pops.

In this pudding pop recipe, we're going to use cool whip. Cool whip gives the pudding pops a creamy, melt in your mouth texture. The only other ingredients you will need in this homemade pudding pop recipe are instant pudding and milk.
