Bored, bored, bored, bored, bored, bored, bored!
That’s the tune these kiddos of mine having been singing all day. It started out cool and stormy and now it’s almost hot, but not hot enough to take them out to the water park. So instead of listening to the “bored song” one more time, I dug through my cabinets to find something, anything to entertain them.
What I found was a few boxes of pudding mix and a fun way for them to cook up their own afternoon snack …. OREO Chocolate Cheesecake Pudding Pops!
These are super easy to make and definitely easy enough for little kids to help with. All you need are a few basic supplies that are probably already hidden in a cupboard somewhere in your kitchen.
A cupcake pan is perfect for holding and freezing these little chocolate pops. You don’t have to worry about them tipping over. But if you do happen to have popsicle molds you can definitely use those too.
After a few hours they are frozen, ready to peel and enjoy!
But they’re BEST enjoyed outside. Little Miss Emma can make one heck of a pudding mess whether it’s frozen or not.
