Pistachio Taffy Crunch Popsicles Recipe

Pistachio Taffy Crunch Popsicles

It’s finally beginning to feel like summer here in SoCal, so I felt that I needed to create another popsicle recipe for the blog. Originally, I was hoping to get this recipe post up for St. Patrick’s Day, thus the green popsicles. Pistachio Taffy Crunch Popsicles may be green and perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, but they are actually great all year long…especially during summertime.

These popsicles are super simple to make because you used pistachio pudding mix. If you have read this blog for a while, then you know that I love making pudding popsicles. Some of my favorite recipes I have shared are –  these very popular rainbow pudding popsicles, or these red velvet popsicles that I made a few years ago.

To make these pistachio taffy crunch popsicles you need the following ingredients:

• Mother’s Taffy Cookies (any shortbread cookie will do)
• 1 box of Pistachio Instant Pudding Mix
• 2 cups of milk
• 1/4 cup Pistachios (unsalted if you can find them)
• Dixie Cups (i prefer 3 oz size)
• popsicle sticks

• mix pudding and milk together and place in refrigerator.
• with a rolling pin, crush 5 cookies and pistachios
• layer, pudding first, then a sprinkle of pistachios and cookies. repeat until cup is filled to the top.
• push popsicle stick into the pudding
• place finished popsicles into the freezer for a few hours or until firm.
• enjoy!

I really love pistachios, so these popsicles are perfect for me. i especially love the flavor and texture the layer of cookies and pistachios brings. it’s dessert on a stick.

And if you use salted pistachios, you get that sweet and salty combo which is great too. Even my kids love these Pistachio Taffy Crunch Popsicles, and I hope you will too.


Banana Cream Pie Popsicles.

yep, another popsicle. what can i say, we love them over here….especially baby. and although i usually like to create my own recipes, i stumbled upon this yummy recipe for banana cream pie popsicles at momtastic. click here for the recipe.

Red Velvet Popsicle Recipe.

we love popsicles around here. remember these fun rainbow ones? so i thought….how about a popsicle for adults. ones the kiddies will pass up (although baby just loves these). how about a Red Velvet Popsicle! my all-time favorite cake flavor….chocolate cake with cream cheese icing.
so, here is what i came up with……i just love them. and i used those small little dixie cups, they make the perfect little afternoon indulgence on these hot summer days.
how to make red velvet popsicles
1 – large boxes (5.1 oz) chocolate instant pudding mix
8 oz. cream cheese
3/4 cup powder sugar (or to taste)
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
red food coloring (optional)
Dixie Cups (3 oz.)
popsicle sticks
• prepare pudding according to the directions. add red food color to make it the red velvet color.
• in another bowl, soften cream cheese.
• add 3/4 cup milk, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla to the cream cheese.
• whisk cream cheese mixture until smooth.
• layer the chocolate pudding and cream cheese mixture into small dixie cups. i did the pudding first because i didn’t want to wait for the cream cheese mixture to harden.  this way the pudding was thick enough to hold the cream cheese and make the popsicle stick stand up.
• cover with tin foil. insert popsicle sticks.
• chill in refrigerator 2 hours, then place in freezer to completely freeze.
to eat, peal off dixie cup paper and enjoy your pudding pop!
• makes 10 – 12 popsicles
