How often do you get to make white, orange, and yellow striped desserts? Well, I guess you could make them any time but those particular colors, arranged in a certain way, are often seen from Halloween to Thanksgiving; so, once a year is the answer to my question. Candy corn desserts, snacks, and treats, with that popular color arrangement, can be so much fun to make and serve. That’s really true when you create candy corn pudding pops. Creamy, cool, and sweet, the pops aren’t too challenging, and they’re just as pretty as they are yummy.
Frozen, flavored water – popsicles – are okay but pudding pops are so much more delicious. And, when they have candy corn stripes, well, they’re irresistible. Pudding pops take a bit longer to make than homemade popsicles but they are definitely worth the few extra minutes.
You’ll need a popsicle mold with sticks to create the candy corn pops. Prepare a small box of Jello white chocolate pudding mix by adding a cup and a half of milk – a bit less than the package recommends. Add a teaspoon of honey (it makes the pudding taste more like candy corn) and then pour the mix into a large plastic bag. Later, you’ll dispense it into the popsicle molds.
Mix up a large box of vanilla pudding with two and a half cups of milk – a little less than the box recommends; it will be used for the yellow as well as the orange layers of the pudding pops. Stir in two teaspoons of honey. Divide the pudding between two bowls so that you can tint it.
Add a couple of drops of yellow food coloring to one bowl; tint the other bowl orange by combining red and yellow food coloring. When you achieve the right shade, pour each color of pudding into a bag for dispensing.
Divide the white chocolate pudding between each of the pops in the popsicle mold. Then, add the orange, and finally, the yellow. To do that, snip a piece out of the corner of each bag and squeeze to dispense. While doing so, tap the mold on the counter or a table to help the layers settle evenly and to prevent air bubbles.
Put the pudding pops in the freezer for at least three or four hours. Serve them at a party, or just to your kids, and those who eat them will enjoy them. Not only are the candy corn pudding pops delicious but they’re also very pretty.
