Red, White, and Blue White Chocolate Pudding Pops

These Red, White, and Blue White Chocolate Pudding Pops are a cinch to throw together and perfect for Fourth of July parties!

Red, White, and Blue White Chocolate Pudding Pops are made in under 10 minutes!

Among the many things I love about the Mr. is his stellar impression of Bill Cosby’s classic pudding pop commercials. He manages to hit all the “p”s with just the right amount of emphasis and enthusiasm. Slap a color block knit sweater on him, and I swear you’d think he was the real deal. At any rate, his impression never fails to make me laugh and then immediately start craving pudding pops.

Little did I know, pudding pops are ridiculously (ludicrously, unbelievably) easy to make. All it takes is a box of instant pudding, milk, and a little whipped topping to create these creamy frozen treats.

Fourth of July White Chocolate Pudding Pops

For this festive Fourth of July version, I decided to use a white chocolate pudding base. It was a close choice between that and cheesecake, but in the end white chocolate won me over. I wanted to keep these as simple as possible, so I just whipped up the pudding pop mixture (it takes less than 5 minutes) then layered it with fresh berries. You can assemble these in regular popsicle holders, but I found a small paper dixie cup worked just as well and made for easy clean up.

I absolutely LOVED the way these turned out. I must admit, I felt a swelling of patriotic pride at the site of them. I may have even broken out into a little “purple mountains majesty” while I was taking pictures. Okay, not really, but they do make you want to fist bump America a little bit, right?

Red, White, and Blue Berry Pudding Pops- so easy and great for Fourth of July!

One note on the recipe: if you have sensitive teeth, the sliced strawberries can be a bit tough to bite into. In that case, you may want to smash them up before pouring them in the cup. I loved eating the whole frozen blueberries though. They were like little bursts of berry ice cream. Whether you choose to smash up the fruits or leave them whole, the pudding is thick enough to layer on top without having to freeze each layer individually.

Take a couple minutes and whip up these frozen treats for your Fourth of July spread. People will be breaking out into the Star Spangled Banner before you know it.

Red, White, and Blue White Chocolate Pudding Pops

Prep Time
Preparation 10 mins Cook Time
Total Time 0:10 Total Time
Serves 5     adjust servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package instant white chocolate pudding*
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup thawed whipped topping
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • About 10 strawberries, sliced

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl combine the pudding mix and milk. Whisk together for 2 minutes. Stir in the Cool Whip.
  2. Grab 5 5 ounce paper or plastic cups (or you can use smaller 3 ounce cups if you want mini ones). Place a layer of strawberries or blueberries in the bottom of each of them. Follow that with a few spoonfuls of pudding mix then another layer of strawberries or blueberries (the opposite of whatever you used the first time). End on another layer of pudding mix. It should come to within about a ½ inch of the top of the cup. Insert the popsicle sticks into the center of the cups then place them in the freezer for at least 24 hours. When ready to eat, run the popsicles under hot water for 5-10 seconds to loosen them up, then simply pull on the stick to release!

      Haha! I don’t even consider myself especially patriotic, but there is something about red, white, and blue food that brings it out in me. 🙂

    These look amazingly delicious and refreshing. I can’t wait to make some. And I really want to hear the Mr.’s Bill Cosby impression. 🙂 Those commercials were classic.
