Jell-O Red Velvet Pudding Pops

I can do voices.

Can you?

Like when I was 10, I used to crack my mom and her friends up by doing George Bush and “No New Taxes.”

While teaching, I use a British accent frequently.

The kids think it’s hilarious.

I think.

I wish I could do Bill Cosby.

I mean, like, I try, but….. I think I just look weird.

Like in that “Uh, Katie, why are your eyes going all googly? Are you ok? Are you choking? Katie!! BREATHE!”

~ ‘Hey, it’s cool. I’m just doing Bill Cosby, you know with the ‘pudddddingg?”


I crack myself up.

So, anyhow, I love Jell-O. Jell-O pudding, Jell-O salad, cubed Jell-O, jiggly Jell-O, layered Jell-O, you get it.

So I made my first batch of Jell-O pudding pops.

They’re homemade Fudgesicles. I can’t believe Grandma never made these for me…. After all those quarters I’d beg her for when I heard the ice cream man coming.

Stifling 106 degree summers in Sacramento, bare feet running across the scalding hot tar covered asphalt. Alllll for the cool, refreshing 90 seconds of pure bliss encountered while eating a Fudgesicle.

Before it quickly melted and ran all down your hands and wrists. Sticky elbows for hours.

She did make me popsicles out of milkshakes, thoooose were good.

But these are…. better!!
Cool Whip makes them extra creamy, and prohibits them from becoming so icy!

So come ON!!! Get the kids, buy some Jell-O, find your favorite creation!

Enter ingredient one.

Box o’ Jell-O.

3 oz. Instant Pudding. Chocolate.

Add some milk. Whisk well. Work quickly.

Regular Pudding Pops just won’t do!

I want RED VELVET popsicles!! Add in 1/2 cup or so of Red Velvet cake mix! Or any other cake mix, cookies, etc!

Except, be more decisive than me, and add the cake mix to the pudding mix, before the liquid.

But…. it’s all good.

Whisk in 1 cup Cool Whip.

Prevents iciness. Keep whisking!

Mmmmm. Doesn’t it look good?

Get your popsicle molds ready!

It makes about 24 popsicles. If you’re like me and only have 6 popsicle molds, you can portion the rest into muffin tins, use paper liners, or a silicone cupcake can. Just as good and will freeze great!

Find 5 of your closest friends or family members, and all enjoy a PUDDING POP!!!!!


~Peace, Love, and Popsicles Y’all!

    It’s never occured to me to use cake mix as a pudding pop ingredient. What a great idea! Now, I have another reason to by Tovolo ice pop molds. 🙂

    This really made me laugh. I’d love to see you do Bill Cosby’s voice. And I don’t even know you!
