Out of all of my popsicles I made for Popsicle Week, these were my favorite. Chocolatey, creamy, cold and an occasional chunk of Oreo. Maybe I just liked these best because I am partial to chocolate. Yeah, I think that's it.
I don't have a real popsicle mold. But I do have some Dixie cups and those work just great. As for popsicle sticks in Dixie cup molds, use plastic to hold them into place. Cover the cups with plastic and then poke the tip of a knife through the top. Carefully slide a popsicle stick in and the plastic holds it in place until it is frozen. I think I prefer using Dixie cups because to get the popsicle out, you just rip the paper cup off. And with Dixie cups, you can make lots of popsicles and you aren't limited by your mold. For example, when I worked on Popsicle Week, I made all of them in one afternoon and I had 30+ popsicles in the freezer at the same time.
2 cups cold milk
1 pkg (4 serving size) chocolate instant pudding
1 cup prepared whipped cream, like Cool Whip
1 cup chopped Oreo cookies
Pour milk into a medium bowl. Add pudding mix. Whisk for 2 minutes. Gently stir in whipped cream. Fold in Oreo chunks. Spoon into popsicle molds or paper cups. Freeze until firm.
