The kids and I have fun making these super easy summer treats. They love picking the colors, helping stir the pudding and deciding which way it should be layered. It's a great way to get the kids involved and let them make the decisions.
2 boxes light colored pudding (I used vanilla)
Follow the directions on the packages of pudding. Once the pudding is mixed according to the directions and has thickened up, evenly separate it into 4 to 6 smaller bowls. Add different colors of food coloring to your divided up pudding. Then stir until the pudding is the color that you want.
Spoon the different colors of pudding into your cups. Try to do smooth and even layers so that you will see a good rainbow on the sides of the pudding pop. Put a popsicle stick into each of the cups of pudding. The pudding should be thick enough to hold up the stick…if not, cover the cup with plastic wrap and then put the stick through the plastic wrap and into the pudding.
Place the pudding pops in the freezer for a few hours. The time will depend on the size of your cups.
After they are completely set, take the pudding pops out of the freezer. Use your hands to warm up the sides of the cup so that the pudding pop will come out of the cup easily. (The Dixie cups are what I use and you can just tear the wax cup off).
