You make me melt like a popsicle on the Fourth of July.

When I found out it was National Popsicle Week, I knew I couldn’t let the week go without sharing one of my favorite pudding popsicle recipes!
I am a HUGE mint & chocolate chip fan. Whether it is the Andes mints at Olive Garden, girl scout Thin Mints or mint flavored frozen yogurt; I love them all! Any time I can incorporate that icy minty goodness into anything I jump at the chance. That is how these Mint Chocolate Chip Pudding Popsicles were born!
Making pudding popsicles at home is such a fun & easy activity to do with your family. The pudding takes less than 3 minutes to come together & it takes less than 7 minutes after that to have the popsicles made & in the freezer.
The best part about pudding popsicles is that they do not require long in the freezer. You can enjoy your frozen treats as early as 3-4 hours after making them!
Food coloring dye can be a little tricky. While it may look like you are adding a ton of coloring in after a few drops, when you actually mix it in it may come off very light. I used between 12-20 drops of green food coloring to achieve this light green look. If you want a more intense color I would suggest going closer to 30 drops of dye.
Similar with the mint extract, too much may be overwhelming. Add in the initial teaspoon, mix & taste before adding more in.
If you are in need of budget friendly popsicle molds, I got these from Target & love them!
Pudding Popsicles Bonus:
The extra dipping of the popsicles into chocolate is completely up to you. I liked having the extra flavor of chocolate in the first few bites!
I hope you get time this holiday weekend to celebrate #PopsicleWeek. There is nothing better than a hot day and a cold treat and these mint chocolate chip pudding popsicles will definitely hit the spot!
- 10 oz pudding mix, white chocolate
- 1 cup milk, 2% or whole milk
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips, divided
- 1 tsp mint extract
- food coloring, green
- large bowl
- popsicle mold, holds 6 popsicles
- small bowl
- wax paper
Into large bowl, add pudding powder & milk. Whisk constantly for 2-4 minutes until thick.
Add in 6-10 drops of green food coloring until pudding becomes light green.
Mix in mint extract. Start with 1 tsp and increase amount if need more mint flavor (this is all dependent on your preference).
Add in 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Stir to combine.
Slowly pour pudding mixture into popsicle molds. When all molds are filled, place in freezer for 2-12 hours until frozen.
Once popsicles are frozen remove from freezer. Run under warm water for 30 seconds to remove popsicle from mold.
Into small bowl add remaining 1/4 cup of chocolate chips. Melt in microwave in 30 second intervals until completely melted.
Immediately dip popsicles into melted chocolate and place on wax paper to dry.
Once popsicles are dry you can either place back in freezer for a few minutes or serve immediately. ENJOY!
