Fudgy, chocolate and Homemade Pudding Pops are surprisingly easy to make and SO good. You just need a popsicle mold, some milk, sugar, some cornstarch and chocolate.

Hey, when was the last time you had a pop pudding?

Maybe it’s been years


Maybe you’ve never tried one. Well, you should fix that today, because these homemade pudding pops are THE BEST STUFF.

For example, I don’t want to overdo these palettes, but they’re rightfully one of my favorite recipes I’ve made for the blog.


was so excited about how good they turned out that I had everyone within a 2-mile radius try one, and then I felt so sad when I realized I had shared them all and instantly regretted my generosity.

The next batch I make, I don’t tell anyone and I accumulate them in the back of my freezer.

What’s so good about these Pudding

  • Pops They are surprisingly easy to make. Pudding pops are basically frozen chocolate pudding, and all you need to make a killer pudding from scratch is a handful of pantry staples and about 15 minutes of cooking time.
  • Tons of chocolate flavor. Since these popsicles are made with real chocolate in the pudding, they contain a huge chocolate punch that is incredibly rich and satisfying.

Tools and ingredient notes

  • Popsicle mold: If you like to make homemade popsicles, a goodpopsicle mold is a must. This is the one I have, and I’ve been very happy with it. It does not collect odors or colors and is easy to clean.
  • Fine-mesh strainer

  • : After making your pudding, you’ll want to strain it through a fine-mesh strainer to remove any lumps. If you don’t own one, you can find them anywhere kitchen utensils are sold, and they’re usually cheap and practical to have (this is the set I have).
  • Cornstarch

  • : Cornstarch is used to help thicken the pudding mixture. You can’t omit it from the recipe.
  • Milk: Any percentage of milk will work, but I prefer to use whole milk as it gives you a richer end result.
  • Semisweet chocolate: Chopped chocolate or high-quality potato chips will work well here.

I make these without a paddle mold?


sure. You don’t need a store-bought popsicle mold to make popsicles. Small paper cups, ice cube trays, and baking cans can be used as makeshift molds. (Check out this article for more ideas.)

BUT, if you enjoy making popsicles at home, consider simply investing in a popsicle mold. It’s worth it.

How to store



If you’re going to eat your pudding pops pretty quickly, you can store them in the mold. But if it’s going to take you more than a couple of days to eat through them, remove all popsicles and wrap them individually in adhesive paper or wax or parchment and store them in an airtight bag or container for the freezer to avoid frostbite.
