As the weather is FINALLY warming up I have a hankering to make summer inspired treats for the boys.
...and for me too.....
So duly inspired by a few on-line recipes I went to work on getting the ingredients for these little gems...BUT, would you believe how hard it is to find a popsicle stick in my town? Every store....no one had em.....so, I had to improvise with some old plastic sticks from a popsicle set I had. I am sure you are wondering, "um Rose, why aren't you using the base of the popsicle set?.....Cause I want to use Dixie Cups!!! So excited!!!
It is WAY easier to fill the bottoms of these little cups with chocolate, or peanuts, or fruit to make these fudgy treats more fun to eat. That, and its also easier to get the popsicle OUT! I hate it when it sticks in the mold and you have to pretty much melt them completely to get them out....Ok, enough with the rant...
Fudgy Banana Pops
What you need:
3 Tbsp. white chocolate chips
1 pkg. (4-serving size) Jell-O Chocolate Instant Pudding
1-1/2 cups cold milk
2 fully ripe bananas, mashed
Sprinkle chocolate chips into the beloved Dixie Cups.
Combine pudding mix and milk. Beat for two minutes.
If you have children, get them to mash the bananas. Wear safety glasses as it gets a little crazy!!!
Combine the pudding and bananas
Divide into the Dixie cups and if you can FIND them...put in popsicle sticks.
These two are so excited! They can't wait the five hours it will take to freeze!
