Oreo Pudding Pops

There is nothing quite as delicious and satisfying as an ice cold popsicle to cool you down on a hot summer day.  From rich and creamy pudding pops to refreshing and healthy fruit pops, I've never met a popsicle I didn't like.  I've been wanting a cute popsicle maker for a few years now.  With summer in full force around here, I was finally motivated enough to splurge and purchase one.  I decided to test out my new Freezer Pop Maker with a quick and simple pudding pop recipe.

These Oreo Pudding Pops couldn't be easier to make.  Just three ingredients and about ten minutes work will yield you some seriously yummy popsicles.  After a few hours in the freezer these indulgent frozen treats will be ready to enjoy.  The pudding creates a cool and creamy base studded with Oreo cookie pieces.  My favorite thing about these pops is the half Oreo hiding in the pudding... as you nearly finish the treat there is a little surprise waiting.

These pudding pops may not be the most glamorous or gourmet, but they're guaranteed to please.  I'll definitely be reaching for this recipe throughout the summer.

Oreo Pudding Pops
adapted slightly from No. 2 Pencil
makes 6 popsicles*

4.2 oz box of Oreo Cookies 'n Creme Jell-O Instant Pudding
1 1/2 cups milk (I used whole milk)
6 Oreo cookies

Separate your Oreo cookies, leaving one side of the cookie with the creme attached.  Break the remaining cookie halves (without the creme filling) into small pieces; set aside.

In a medium bowl, stir together the pudding mix, Oreo pieces, and milk until well combined.  Carefully spoon prepared pudding into your popsicle molds.  Once filled, tapped your mold gently on the counter to help bring any air bubbles to the surface and even out the pudding mixture in the molds.

Slide one Oreo half into each of the filled popsicle molds, being careful to insert it with the chocolate side against the side of the mold (for a pretty presentation and to leave room for the popsicle stick to be inserted in the middle).  Insert the popsicle sticks and freeze for 2-3 hours, or overnight.  Once frozen, you can enjoy your popsicles right away, or freeze them for up to a week.

*I used the Progressive Freezer Pop Maker.  Depending on the size of your popsicle maker, the recipe may yield a smaller or larger quantity of popsicles.
