Mini Candy Corn Inspired Frozen Pudding Pops

What do you do when you have:
  • six children looking for a fun fall snack

  • 1/2 a box of vanilla pudding mix (we used the first half to make pumpkin ice cream)

  • a smidge (lets say 1/2 of cup) of whipped cream

  • 1 cup of milk

  • and a few drops of yellow and red food coloring?

Well, I don't know about you, but I would mix the pudding, milk and whipped cream. Divide it into three bowls, coloring one bowl with red and yellow to make orange, and one with just yellow.

Layer them into tiny cups (we used cleaned out communion cups, but recycled medicine cups might work too, or Dixie cups, if you don't mind going a little larger).

Stick a tooth pick, or half a sucker stick into each one, and place them in the freezer for an hour or so.

Once frozen, run hot water over the outside of the cups, pull out the candy corn inspired treats, and give them to the happy children to enjoy. Then send them all off to nap, and eat the left overs!

It's great to be a homeschooler.
